Recycling Lives’ Food Redistribution Centre is on film again…this time thanks to a donation of CCTV equipment to the warehouse.
Security business ADJ Fire & Security has fitted security systems to the FareShare warehouse free of charge, after being inspired by its work.
The security firm fitted £2,500 of CCTV equipment, including HD cameras, free-of-charge, and also installed an intruder alarm system at a discounted rate, to support the charity.
Andy Moore, managing director of ADJ Fire & Security, said: “We do a lot of work for Recycling Lives and wanted to give something back.
“It’s fantastic what the Centre does so I’m really proud we’re able to support it.
“The warehouse had no security whatsoever before this installation and it’s always helpful for organisations to have systems. I wouldn’t want the Centre being broken into and all those goods not going to the people who need and deserve them the most.”
The Food Redistribution Centre, managed by Recycling Lives in partnership with charity FareShare, bridges the gap between supermarkets and suppliers, and charities and community groups.
Taking deliveries of surplus goods from the former, which would have otherwise been destined for landfill, it then redistributes goods to the latter, which includes homeless hostels, breakfast clubs and hospices – thereby reducing food waste and tackling food poverty.
Recycling Lives CSR director, Alasdair Jackson, said: “This is a hugely generous donation from ADJ Fire & Security, which we’re really grateful for.
“We’re pleased that we can further protect our staff, volunteers and equipment so that they can concentrate of their important job of redistributing goods and supporting communities across Lancashire.”
