The morning was spent in the Foodbank distribution building offloading the donations as deliveries came in, labelling the expiry dates and stacking the shelves. In the afternoon, they teamed up with some students from Weston College at Tesco looking to encourage customers to add an item (or items) from the Foodbank leaflet onto their shop. The generosity of the afternoon shoppers was extremely heart-warming, including one lady who donated an entire trolley full of items. A massive 615kgs of items were donated which is the equivalent to around 65 food parcels for those in need around the Weston area!
November is also the time we hold our six monthly team member seminars, which always begin with our Leadership Event.
It was another fantastic opportunity for me to spend time with the entirety of our leadership team and provide a number of key updates and focusses for 2020. It is also chance to recognise leaders who have been working tirelessly to improve our businesses for our customers and our people.
Our next seminar is for our field based Meter Reading teams where we spent the entire day at Haynes Motor Museum celebrating some of our key achievements over the last six months and look ahead at what the next six months has in store.
