The Glenrothes based clothing manufacturer, Seahawk Apparel, is working with Fife Council to put together 1,000 ‘winter warmer’ packs for local residents who are at risk of fuel poverty.
As part of Fife Council’s commitment to investing in Fife and working with local companies, Seahawk Apparel was commissioned to supply the winter essentials.
Steven Mitchell, Business Development Manager at Seahawk, said: “Customers who choose Seahawk as part of their UK supply chain, experience a personalised service that adds value to their organisation. We’re a trusted supplier to many industries, and it’s brilliant to be able to supply critical products to people in need, right on our doorstep here in Fife through this brilliant Fife Council initiative.”
Sheena Watson, Programme Manager for Tackling Poverty and Crisis Prevention Board for Fife Council, said: “It’s brilliant to be able to work with a local Fife-based company for this project. We’re grateful to the team for pulling it all together so quickly to enable us to deploy support to those who need it most.”
The Seahawk van is delivering the packs to eight regional community centres for distribution to the pre-selected Fife residents.
JP Easton, Community Development Manager, based at the Lomond Centre in Glenrothes said: “These packs will be invaluable to a lot of people in Fife who are struggling with fuel poverty. While providing a much-needed service to some of the most vulnerable people in Fife, it’s also great that we have been able to source these locally, from a truly local supplier. This helps us keep the investment within Fife and therefore benefits even more Fifers. It’s a win-win.”
