A Rotherham firm is helping a food poverty charity deliver a new employability programme after donating computers.

Willmott Dixon’s Rotherham branch handed four laptops to FareShare Yorkshire to help jobseekers practise CV writing and job searching as well as brush up on IT skills.

John Rick, business development manager at FareShare Yorkshire, said: “This new programme will make a real difference to those in food poverty, helping them break down the social and financial barriers they face. Willmott Dixon has been a key partner and the support has been fantastic, not only donating money and the vital computer equipment, but also by volunteering time.

“Working in partnership with Willmott Dixon staff means we can level the playing field and offer the time, equipment and expertise to give jobseekers a better chance at finding work.”

Mick Williamson, managing director at Willmott Dixon, added: “We are working to make a real and positive difference to the lives of people living locally. We aim to do this through volunteer projects, fundraising initiatives, and charity partnerships.”
