2 Sisters Food Group have joined forces with West Midlands trumpeting legends Beeches Performance Ensemble to supply food to five of their camps this year.
The competitive marching band, a registered youth charity in Birmingham, with members aged eight to 45 years, have been invited to compete in America next year to crowds of up to 30,000 people.
2 Sisters Food Group’s sites Pennine Foods (Sheffield) Gunstones Bakery (Dronfield) and The Pizza Factory (Nottingham) have been donating food to the camps which will help reduce the cost of the trip which is £1800 per member.
The camps provide valuable rehearsal time for all the members to develop their programme.
Oliver Kershaw Dickson, band member, said: "We want to say a massive thank you to the three sites who have offered to help supply some of the meals during our camp weekends. Pennine Foods and The Pizza Factory supplied ready meals and pizzas to the first camp over the Easter weekend and Gunstones provided burger buns at our latest camp."
Lindsey Buckley, HR Director Meal Solutions, said: “We are happy to help Oliver and the band. It was lovely to hear that his great grandfather used to work at Gunstones Bakery and that we can continue the family link.”
