One of Bradford’s leading cash and carry grocery retailers, for exotic spices, world foods, household goods and halal meat, announces its new charity partner.
SaveCo announced Age UK Bradford District as their new local charity partner.
The Bradford-based food retailer is part of a family of companies that have grown with the communities they serve. It is this shared focus on local communities that led them to select Age UK as their independent charity partner to support them in their work.
Age UK operates through six community hubs across Bradford, Keighley and Shipley and focuses on the specific needs of older people in these diverse communities.
Working with older people, Age UK Bradford District aims to build packages of support enabling them to live their best life and giving them the choice, control and connections they need through the provision of Information, help and support, advice and casework, groups and activities.
By connecting with SaveCo, Age UK Bradford District hopes to extend its reach and impact across communities and promote its work and activities.
Shiraz Ahmed CEO of SaveCo says:
“As our company’s digital presence has grown, it has become more and more apparent that we are leaving behind one of the most valuable sections of our community due to digital disenfranchisement. By partnering with Age UK Bradford District, we hope to bridge this gap by raising awareness and providing support to our elderly community, allowing them to stay connected and better enjoy what should be the best years of their life.”
Mark Rounding, CEO at Age Uk Bradford District, also commented “We are delighted to have connected with SaveCo and are so enthusiastic about this new joint partnership. We share an approach focusing on serving Bradford’s local communities, which is so important in our work with older people.”
