At Sands Wealth Management, we believe in supporting causes that will improve our world, the society we live in, and helping those less fortunate than ourselves.
As of March 2019, we have started supporting the local charity – ‘The Real Junk Food Project‘. Our Team have been giving valuable time and labour – volunteering at the Wakefield Sharehouse on a regular basis. Aside from volunteering, TRJFP have been given access to our boardroom for meetings with their national partners, and our marketing Team have been supporting both TRJFP and the Wholemeal Café Ripon by designing posters and other marketing collateral. You can keep up to date on our work with TRJFP on our news page.
Alongside TRJFP, Sands Wealth Management will now be supporting the Wakefield based charity Kidzaware. The charity exists to ensure that all children and adults with a disability have the opportunities to achieve their aspirations in life. Kidzaware see people first rather than their disability and we want to help people achieve everything they can in life.
About The Real Junk Food Project
The Real Junk Food Project is a collaborative effort to bring about a radical change in our food system. They save perfectly edible food from supermarkets, distributors, and wholesalers that would otherwise not make it to your plate, and make it available to all on a Pay As You Feel basis. All food that they intercept is processed, quality controlled and distributed through a network of cafes, Sharehouses, Freegan Boxes, schools and community groups.
Around 1/3 of food globally is wasted (around 1.3 billion tonnes). Simultaneously, hundreds of thousands of people in the UK are living in poverty. The Real Junk Food Project believe that everyone should have access to enough food to sustain them – it’s a human right. The Real Junk Food Project provides the network to empower people in their community to make a difference.
