After a year filled with uncertainty and change, we decided to close 2020 with a festive giving spree.
2020 saw community spirit and third sector support for our most vulnerable people take on greater importance than ever.
In an effort to bring some good news to those who have worked tirelessly to ensure our most vulnerable are supported, we donated £12,000 across 12 charities.
The crucial work of each has helped thousands of individuals not just in 2020, but for many years and will continue to do so through mental health support, international aid, life saving medical assistance and more.
- Birmingham Children’s Hospital
- West Midlands Trussell Trust
- Buckingham Food Bank
- Midlands Langar Seva
- Lighthouse Club
- Pheasey Park Community Christmas
- Hull Foodbank
- Khalsa Aid
- Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust
- Support towards hygiene products for Indian Farmers’ Protesters
Surrinder Nijjer, Fortel Chairman, said: “We are proud of the social legacy we are building and have been building for more than two decades now.
“2020 was a particularly difficult year for charities but those we are making donations to have continued to carry out their selfless and much-needed work.
“We hope that our donations went some way towards helping those in need this festive period and into the New Year.”
