Kind hearted employees at a Sheffield insolvency firm joined forces with Aldi to help out a food bank in Sheffield.

Staff at Wilson Field heard about St Saviour’s Community Project in High Green through employee Karen Wragg and wanted to help.

The project was set up by Alan Greaves and his wife Maureen just a few weeks before Alan was tragically murdered as he made his way to the church on Christmas Eve.

The workers collected food and household goods and the company donated £100.

Their donation was matched by staff at Aldi in Ecclesfield.

Karen said: “I was moved and humbled when I learnt about the work that Maureen carries out in the community, despite the tragic loss of her husband.

“Our donation aims to continue the good work Alan and Maureen were carrying out in High Green.

“A team of volunteers work tirelessly to make the community project a success.”

An Aldi spokesman said: “We were more than happy to help match the amazing effort of Wilson Field for this worthy cause.”

Maureen Greaves added: “Alan would have been so pleased to see this very generous donation to the project.

“These items will go to people who need them most.”
