During this uncertain time, East Sussex based manufacturer Aspen Pumps Group has shown its support to the local community by purchasing £500 worth of food from a local business and donating it to Hailsham’s foodbank. 

A valuable resource for some of the most vulnerable members of society, Hailsham foodbank is run by 50 local volunteers, working towards stopping hunger in the local area. Staff from Aspen Pumps visited local shop ‘The Deli’ in Hailsham, purchasing a variety of food and delivering it in person to the foodbank. Julie Coates, Hailsham Foodbank Project Manager said “We are very grateful to Aspen for lending a helping hand at what is an especially challenging time for many of the most vulnerable members of our community.” 

Aspen, a manufacturer of condensate removal pumps, whose head office is in Hailsham, was founded in 1992 and now houses 5 brands and employs over 100 local people. Despite notable growth and business premises on four continents, Aspen has stayed true to its roots, continually supporting the local community by seeking to make regular charitable donations. 

Speaking about Aspen’s charitable giving, Group Communications Manager, Fay Davis said, “Aspen has grown into a global business but has always maintained strong links with the local community. We wanted to give something back and offer our support during this difficult time which is having an impact on so many people. It was important to us to also be able to support a local business by buying the food we donated from a local source.”
