Here at Trayport, we believe that we must be a business that not only supports our people, our clients, and energy trading markets, but one that also gives back to the communities that surround us. Our Giving Strategy includes us supporting the global charity We.Org, and a charity in our local borough of Tower Hamlets. With the Covid-19 crisis impacting our most vulnerable communities, we want to highlight an organisation that we are very proud to support during this time.
About First Love Charity
Operating since 2010, First Love Foundation tackles hidden hunger in Tower Hamlets, an area with the highest pensioner and child poverty rates in England, and an estimated four out of ten households living below the poverty line. First Love Foundation lives out of the belief that everyone deserves to be loved and no one should slip through the cracks.
“At this challenging time, it’s wonderful to have the support of everyone at Trayport. This generous donation will go towards the bulk order of food and the cost of scaling up our operations, which will help us meet the emergency need for crisis support in the borough right now,” says Denise Bentley, CEO of First Love Foundation.
”We are pleased to be able to donate £8000 to support the incredible work done by our local food bank, First Love Foundation, who help so many families living below the poverty line.
During this global pandemic, we are fortunate enough to be able to maintain a degree of normality by continuing our working lives remotely, lessening the impact this has on our day-to-day. However, we have a responsibility to support those in our local community who are not so fortunate and who have been directly impacted by the outbreak of Coronavirus. Now more than ever, our country’s food banks are heavily reliant upon the community to provide financial support, enabling them to provide an essential service to those in need,” says Peter Conroy, Trayport President, on the current situation.
We have supported First Love Foundation over the last five years during the Christmas period but are proud to extend our support during this crisis.
