Jet2 has donated thousands of snack boxes to help local charities in their work supporting the elderly and the homeless in Greater Manchester.
The leisure airline donated the boxes today to Age UK’s Manchester Resource Centre and SPIN (Supporting People in Need) Manchester, a charitable organisation that feeds, shelters and supports both the homeless and people in need.
The snack boxes, which would normally be purchased by customers flying with Jet2.com, contain chocolate flapjack, Pretzels, Italian cheese, crackers and Pizette cheese – enabling the charities to provide more food and snacks to people who are in need during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Zoe Mitchell, Assistant Care Centre Manager at Age UK Manchester said: “The delivery from Jet2.com will help lots of people within the community during this difficult time, when we need to stick together to overcome the COVID-19 outbreak. This donation was gladly received and very much appreciated by everyone here at AGE UK.”
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “We want to support the local community in any way that we can during this difficult time, and we hope these snack boxes will help those who are in need. We are very proud to be doing our bit to help people in Greater Manchester.”
