Cranberry Foods supplies Christmas turkey donation

Cranberry Foods – the UK's second-largest turkey producer – has donated 60 turkeys to charity for the second year in a row for Christmas.

The group, which is based in Scropton, Derbyshire, gave the turkeys to Save The Family – a charity that aims to help homeless families and individuals, which has been operating for 35 years.

Andrew Lewins, joint managing director of Cranberry Foods, said the group was delighted to be able to donate the produce.

He added: “We believe that Christmas is a very important time for families to be together and that a whole roast turkey is still the number one choice for the most important meal of the year.”

Edna Speed MBE, the founder and chairman of Save the Family, said: “Children in poverty at any time of the year is unacceptable, but Christmas, with all its promise, can be the saddest time of all and emphasises that poverty. We thank Cranberry Foods for its kind donation, which will help us to give those who are less fortunate a more enjoyable Christmas.”
