Monica Hartley, PA to Directors at Kent Blaxill has teamed up with her daughter India Whyte, Technical Director at Toni & Guy and co-ordinated collections for the foodbank at both their places of work.


Employees at both companies have been incredibly generous this year and together donated 205.7kg of food.


Monica Hartley said, ‘The staff at Kent Blaxill have really got behind this cause and we have been so thrilled with all the donations, especially at a time of year when everyone is so busy. India Whyte added,  ‘Lots of my colleagues at Toni & Guy are young parents like myself and we really wanted to help other children and their families this Christmas – when I heard what the staff at Kent Blaxill were doing  I was inspired to encourage my colleagues to join in the collection too and needless to say, everyone wanted to get on board and everyone here at Toni & Guy has been brilliant’.
