Staff at a Cumbria-based training provider have been spreading generosity by taking part in a global awareness day.
Advisers and managers from PHX Training donated parcels of food and hygiene products ahead of World Kindness Day.
In total, over 80 items were donated by staff and distributed to Carlisle Food Bank and Period Poverty North Cumbria, helping to support local people in the county.
PHX Training, which has training centres in Blackpool, Barrow, Carlisle, Preston, Morecambe and Workington, offers a range of training courses and apprenticeships aimed to get more local people in to work.
Helen Macnaughton, Business Manager at PHX Training, said: “Our work sits at the heart of the local communities we work in and all our staff members are keen to do what we can to support local people. Donating food and sanitary products is a simple act of kindness, but it could mean the world of difference to a family or individual who is struggling in the run up to Christmas.”
PHX Training delivers government-backed initiatives, adult skills, NEET (not in education, employment or training), employability contracts, apprenticeships and work-based learning programmes.
The company specialises in apprenticeship qualifications in business administration skills, offering learners skills for roles such as office executive, office supervisor, membership administrator and personal administrator.
