Elior announces Christmas campaign to support homeless
Elior UK has teamed up with client BT Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh to donate around 3,000 hot meals to the vulnerable in the local community over the Christmas period. For every Christmas party booking received, the caterer will supply hot meals via a partnership with Social Bite, an Edinburgh-based organisation that distributes food and hot drinks to people experiencing homelessness and food poverty.
Craig Stewart, regional managing director for Elior, said: “With the return of the Christmas party this year, we are determined to provide an offer with purpose that gives back to the local community that we have strong ties to. We are delighted that this year’s festive offer will not only give revellers a wonderful night to remember, but at the same time we will be distributing around 3,000 free hot meals to people for whom this time of year can be particularly difficult.”
Josh Littlejohn MBE, co-founder of Social Bite, added: “It’s great news that, by having fun at BT Murrayfield, locals will, in effect, be helping other local people in the community who will be struggling at Christmas. It is through the generosity of organisations like Elior and Scottish Rugby that we are able to make it that little bit brighter for so many vulnerable people who would otherwise go without.”
