Durham Box wins at North East Charity Awards 2022

Corrugated packaging manufacturer, County Durham-based Durham Box, has won the Outstanding Charity Support by Small to Medium Companies Award at the North East Charity Awards 2022, held on Wednesday 19 October at The Fed in Gateshead. The award was for the company’s continued support for local charity, Feeding Families.

Feeding Families is a lifeline for many families, delivering food all year round to families in food poverty. Working closely with other organisations and agencies, the charity ensures that thousands of families in desperate need have access to emergency food boxes and support packages. Covering Sunderland, Newcastle, County Durham, Northumberland, and Teesside, the charity routinely send out over 1000 emergency food boxes monthly, and provide over 9000 hamper boxes during the Christmas period.

Durham Box supports the charity through the supply of corrugated boxes used to distribute food. They also provide branded dump bins, which are placed in local shops, businesses and schools, to enable food donations throughout the region.

“The support that Durham Box gives to us is a fundamental part of the charity, without this we would not be able to help as many people are we do,” said Sarah McPhie, Feeding Families’ communications & fundraising manager. “We cannot thank all the team at Durham Box enough!”

Dan Morris, Durham Box’s Managing Director, added: “We are delighted to have won an award for our ongoing support for Feeding Families. For those who are struggling in food poverty across the region, life can be particularly challenging for many families, particularly with the rising cost of living and the impact of that across the country. We’re glad that we continue to make a difference with our box donations.”
