TRUCKERS have extended a helping hand to the hungry with a hefty donation for Rotherham Foodbank.
Crossroads Truck & Bus welcomed new Mayor of Rotherham, Cllr Tajamal Khan, to an open day and handed over a cheque for £1,635 to the foodbank as part of a Hauliers Against Hunger campaign.
The Mayor said: “The work that Crossroads and Rotherham Foodbank are doing to help people is fantastic.
“If everybody pulls together during these challenging times we can make society a better place.”
Staff and customers of Crossroads, which supplies and services Volvo commercial vehicles at its depot in Canklow Meadows, worked together to raise the funds that were donated.
Justin Rushton, operations director at Crossroads, said: “People are struggling due to astronomical fuel and food prices.
“We’ve been operating in Rotherham for over 35 years so we’re keen to support the local community.”
Crossroads’s nine depots across Yorkshire and Lincolnshire are taking part in Hauliers Against Hunger.
