Greggs and Virgin Media O2 to provide free mobile data to families in need

Greggs has teamed up with Virgin Media O2 to provide free mobile data to families in need.

Operating through Greggs Hardship Fund, the new scheme will see free O2 SIM cards and voucher codes being distributed to families who need them via schools across the UK.

Recipients will receive 15GB of mobile data. According to Ofcom, this is more than three times the amount used in a month by the average mobile phone user in the UK.

Trial locations for the scheme include schools in Scotland, the North East, South East and the Midlands.

The Greggs Hardship Fund helps struggling families through the provision of supermarket and clothing vouchers, beds, white goods and other household items.

Tracy Lynch, Greggs Foundation Manager, said: “At Greggs we understand many people struggle to make ends meet and when unexpected costs arise, many can suddenly find themselves in very difficult circumstances. With the Hardship Fund, we are able to offer a helping hand to people who need it most. By joining the National Databank we are now able to provide further essential support to those facing hardship.”

Virgin’s support of the National Databank forms part of its new sustainability strategy, the Better Connections Plan.

Nicola Green from Virgin Media O2, added: “We’re proud to see the National Databank go from strength to strength, providing free mobile data to people who need it. We’re delighted to welcome the Greggs Foundation, so we can support more families across the UK and help connect the disconnected.”
