Chris Warrick, Contracts Manager from Dodd Group Midland Limited said: “We have worked for a number of years in Cannock Chase. Working day-to-day in the properties we see how hard families are finding it and struggling on a daily basis. This donation is a small gesture to give something back to the community.”

Dave Webb, Rugeley Foodbank Manager said: “The Foodbank is extremely grateful for the donation of the Easter eggs from the Dodd Group. We are sure that the Easter eggs will be greatly appreciated by the families that we support. We will ensure that these go out to families struggling in Cannock Chase in time for Easter.”
