Milestone product gifted to local Bolton school
We joined children from a local Bolton school to donate our one millionth product to community groups this year.
The pledge to donate one million products was made through the Warburtons Foundation, which aims to support families across the UK through community hubs including schools and food banks. As a family business, we have been passionate about supporting charities since 1876, setting the donation target of 1.25 million products already for next year.
The millionth product was donated to Church Road Primary School, a stone’s throw from our flagship bakery in Bolton. To mark the moment, Chairman and fifth-generation Warburton, Jonathan, paid visit to the school to help celebrate the occasion and handle the delivery of products including Crumpets and Toastie Loaf for pupils.
Mrs Deborah Docherty, Headteacher at Church Road Primary School, said: “It’s extremely important for us that children attending school aren’t hungry and the donations we receive from The Warburtons Foundation help us provide our pupils with the best start to the day. The donation today will not only support our children in school but provide them with something to take home as we know that there are many families for whom a loaf of bread is a great help right now.”
Jonathan Warburton, CEO of Warburtons, commented: “Our family business has been supporting local communities since we began and it remains incredibly important to us to this day. I am really pleased we reached our commitment to donating one million products this year, it’s been a delight to visit Church Road Primary School today to meet some of the children our donations go towards supporting.
“Things are difficult for so many families at the moment and we recognise how vital it is that we continue to listen and act so that we can help play our part in supporting families across the country as best we can. We look forward to helping out the community in the years to come and meet our next target of 1.25 million donations in the next 12 months.”
