Britain’s oldest family-owned jam maker, Duerr’s, has donated hundreds of jars of preserves to support Feeding Birkenhead’s community shop.
The Manchester-based manufacturer has donated 300 jars of its jams, marmalades, honey and peanut butter to Number 7, a Feeding Birkenhead citizen’s cafe and supermarket.
The non-profit food shop aims to help build the community’s resilience against hunger, utilising good quality food supplies to enable individuals and families on low incomes to purchase food at heavily reduced prices.
Mark Duerr, managing director of F. Duerr & Sons said: “We are thrilled to be supporting Feeding Birkenhead’s citizen’s shop, it’s such a fantastic organisation and the work they do is vitally important to the local community.
“Our family business is committed to supporting families across the North West and we are pleased to be able to donate our products for all to enjoy.”
Kay Penkethman, manager of Feeding Birkenhead’s Number 7 supermarket said: “We’re delighted with the donations from Duerr’s. The product range and variety is the perfect addition to our store and we have no doubt that they will be enjoyed by families across Birkenhead.”
