Armsons Barlow to raise funds for Derby Food 4 Thought Alliance

Derby-based project managers, construction cost consultants, and building surveyors, Armsons Barlow have adopted the Derby Food 4 Thought Alliance (DF4T) as their annual charity.

It comes after the firm raised £2,000 for the charity at their annual charity golf day at Kedleston Park Golf Club in Derby last year.

Derby Food 4 Thought Alliance was originally established as a response to the needs arising from the COVID-19 pandemic and since then has progressed to become a longer-term solution supporting the root causes of deprivation and poverty.

The charity now supports people in Derby who are experiencing food insecurity, through food provision, signposting, support, and advice.

To date, more than 350,000 items have been distributed via the charity’s central storage unit on Ascot Drive in the city.

Over the next 12 months, the team at Armsons Barlow will be organising a series of charity events and volunteer opportunities in aid of DF4T.

This includes this year’s charity golf day, which is taking place again at Kedleston Park Golf Club on 17 May. Teams of four comprising of guests from the business community and Armsons Barlow staff will be fighting it out for honours.

Commenting on the decision to adopt DF4T as their annual charity, Jonathan Heath, director of Armsons Barlow, said: “When we visited the charity’s warehouse on Ascot Drive, we were very impressed by their work, and it was a unanimous decision to select them as our annual charity for the next 12 months.

“DF4T has done fantastic work over the past four years to help tackle food poverty in Derby, and we hope we can raise even more money this year to help to provide long term solutions to deprivation and poverty.”

Paul Brookhouse, senior manager at Derby Food 4 Thought, added: “We’re thrilled that Armsons Barlow have selected us as their annual charity following their significant donation last year.

“We are currently giving away more than 2,000 food parcels a month and need donations just as much as when we launched the charity in 2020.

“Thanks to the support of businesses like Armsons Barlow, we will be able to continue providing essential support to those who need it most across the city.”
