We recently donated hundreds of jars of our preserves to support Feeding Birkenhead’s community shop.
Back in February we donated 300 jars of its jams, marmalades, honey and peanut butter to Number 7, a Feeding Birkenhead citizen’s cafe and supermarket.
The non-profit food shop aims to help build the community’s resilience against hunger, utilising good quality food supplies to enable individuals and families on low incomes to purchase food at heavily reduced prices.
Mark Duerr, managing director of F Duerr & Sons said:
“We are thrilled to be supporting Feeding Birkenhead’s citizen’s shop – it’s such a fantastic organisation and the work they do is vitally important to the local community.
“Our family business is committed to supporting families across the North West and we are thrilled to be able to donate our products for all to enjoy.”
Kay Penkethman, manager of Feeding Birkinhead’s Number 7 supermarket said:
“We’re delighted with the donations from Duerr’s. The product range and variety is the perfect addition to our store and we have no doubt that they will be enjoyed by families across Birkenhead.”
We’ve been producing high-quality and innovative jams, marmalades, sweet spreads and condiments from our two sites in Manchester for over 135 years.
