Brakes has won the Charity, Community and Environment category at the Hollis Sponsorship Awards.
The company shares the award with charity partner FareShare, and the award recognises the company’s work in reducing food waste by redistributing surplus food to homeless and vulnerable people in Britain.
In 2010 Brakes entered a long-term strategic relationship with the FareShare community food network. Every month Brakes supplies food which has passed its minimum shelf life but is still in date to over 30,000 vulnerable people across 600 charities and organisations around the UK.
James Armitage, marketing director at Brakes, said: “This award is a real endorsement of this partnership. The initiative has allowed us to help a worthwhile cause.”
