December 2020  

Bennett Staff are once again proud to have supported Tameside’s community support group – Sandwich Angels please get involved and help this local cause who rely on the support of local people and business to help feed and comfort people and families living in poverty or homeless right here on our doorstep.


March to December 2020 

What a crazy few months, who would have thought we would have been living in Lockdown due to Covid-19. Many lives have been lost and many businesses will never open its doors again. People living in poverty more than ever. How sad 2020 has been. There has also been many businesses that have started up and thrived during this pandemic.

We would like to reassure all our clients, candidates, suppliers and associates that we remain resilient, positive and more than ever customer focused. We have changed many things to keep Covid-19 safe and to ensure our staff, clients and candidates feel safe going to work. Our door still remains closed to general public.. strict appointment only for candidates.

We have adapted to the new norm of virtual meetings, staff working in different bubbles to save mixing. We are certainly dictated to by our business and will continue to operate good business ethics. Lets hope 2021 we will see the back of this dreadful virus so we can move on and continue to make progress. Keep safe and look after your loved ones.


End of March 2020 – we are all in a global pandemic, where we cannot go out, see our family and friends and the uncertainty of our jobs will go back to the way they were. Very scary and unprecedented times we are all facing. But one thing is for sure we are in this together and if we do what the government tells us we will get through this. #Keepsafe #Stayhomesavelifes.

A huge thank you to everyone on the front line supporting our world and keeping it safe. NHS Workers, Police, Fire Brigade, Shop workers, Care workers to name but a few – thank you from us all at Bennett Staff.

March 2020 – after much deliberation we have decided this year we are going to continue to support Sandwich Angels and Macmillan Coffee Morning. Each member of our team also take part in raising extra funds for their own nominated charities. Last year the ladies took part in the Midnight Wander raising monies for Willow Wood, and the lads did a tremendous job on taking on tough Mudder raising monies for Prostate Cancer. Watch this space for who they decide.

February 2020  – Our local concern we have chosen is Sandwich Angels – They are a local community group based right here in Hyde. Sandwich Angels do not take money nor are they a business, they provide daily sandwiches to feed the homeless people and is run by volunteers.

We have committed to shop each month for sandwich fillers, pot noodles, gloves, food bags etc etc, We are also one of the local drop off points for general public.


See the link here at the amazing work they do @SandwichAngels
