OPPO BROTHERS DONATES 2,500 TUBS OF ICE CREAM THIS CHRISTMAS
Our mission here at Oppo Brothers is to make the world feel good through our great-tasting, lower calorie ice cream.
At this time of year we think it's especially important to do some good in the community and bring some feel good to those who need it the most.
This December, we're proud to have donated 2,500 tubs of our brand new Cookies & Cream ice cream to some incredible organisations across the UK to help brighten days and lift spirits over the festive season.
These organisations include Crisis, Commonside Community Development Trust, The Big Difference at Above Bar Church, Solace, various care homes and more!
We'd like to take the opportunity to spotlight some of the wonderful work these organisations are doing for such important causes so please do keep reading and carry on scrolling.
CRISIS AT CHRISTMAS
Crisis is the national charity for people who are homeless. They help people directly out of homelessness and campaign for the political commitment and social changes needed to solve it altogether as no one should be homeless and alone.
Every year, Crisis works side-by-side with thousands of homeless people at 11 Skylight centres across the UK. These centres help people leave homelessness behind for good through education and training, as well as support with housing, employment and health and wellbeing.
We're proud to be supporting Crisis this Christmas by providing a freezer to one of their Skylight centres and filling it to the brim with ice cream for those who are facing homelessness to enjoy.
COMMONSIDE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT TRUST
The Commonside Community Development Trust is an organisation creating a better future for ourselves, our families and our communities.
The team at Commonside work to improve the lives and environment of people living in Merton through managing a community centre, running community events and a number of community development programmes.

The Big Difference is a food redistribution project serving the community of Southampton, based at Above Bar Church in Woolston. They work with charities and community groups in Southampton to help struggling families and the vulnerable who are facing food poverty.
In total, The Big Difference has given out 4111 food parcels, 720 homeless packed lunches on the street and 39630 frozen meals, and are currently feeding an estimated 250 people per week. The value of the food distributed so far comes to an astonishing £222,450 (as of December 2020).
