Whitby Seafoods look to spread the festive cheer as they celebrate ‘12 Days of Kindness’
The seafood obsessives on a mission to add a sprinkling of kindness this Christmas and so far they’ve visited various locations in Whitby, Scarbrough and York in their Scampi Camper, handing out free hot scampi meals to the local community and those in need.
The company’s ‘12 Days of Kindness’ campaign has seen them visit Esk Hall Care Home in Sleights, where the residents and staff were treated to Whitby Seafoods famous Scampi and chips. A trip down the road to visit the fantastic NHS staff at Whitby Hospital was also on their list, where again the staff all enjoyed a top-notch meal, fresh from the camper!
Whitby Seafoods then journeyed to Scarborough and visited an organisation close to their hearts, The Rainbow Centre. Their social enterprise, The Seafood Social, donates all of its profits to the centre, and so far they have helped to raise over £9,000 for individuals in need.
Laura Whittle, Sales and Marketing Director at Whitby Seafoods commented: ‘We’re so pleased to be doing our 12 Days of Kindness campaign this festive season. As a family business, community values and helping those in need are at the heart of everything we do.
This time of year is hard for many people as they can be affected by loneliness or for some, homelessness.
Taking our Scampi Camper on tour is a little act of kindness that could make a real difference to a person’s day. It is also a thank you to the emergency services for all their hard work, especially at this time of year. The reaction has been incredible, you can tell from the photos, comments and the smiles on faces, that it’s gone down a real treat!’
