'Move you in Box' initiative supports 2,700 Armed Forces families

More than 2,700 Armed Forces families will have a warm welcome to their new home this year, thanks to a new initiative.

The ‘Move you in Box’ project has been organised by e50K, a not-for-profit organisation based in Essex and Amey Defence Services. Since 2022, the companies have been distributing welcome boxes to families moving into Service Family Accommodation to help them settle into their new home and community. The boxes contain useful household products sourced from eco-friendly, sustainable and small businesses.

Two members of staff from Take Point Training drove to Catterick in Yorkshire to join an army of volunteers and lend a helping hand in packing 2,789 boxes for onward distribution.
In a post on LinkedIn, founder of e50K, Elizabeth Newman-Earl, said: "I am inordinately proud of the team at e50k for turning the chaotic space of Hangar 27 into the Move You In Pack production line ready to pack 2,789 boxes today. This was an idea that started in a bid room as teabags and tea towels and it had grown into a product that uses only Defence, micro or ethical suppliers, employing military spouses and partners, and in some ways changes lives. It is more than just a box, it is the demonstration of sustainable of values creation welcoming military families as they march into their new posting."

e50K is a collective of military community members that provide a voice for those impacted by forces living.
Nick Pinniger, Chief Operating Officer of Take Point Training, said: “As a company with values closely aligned to e50K's we were delighted to support such an important project. We extend a huge 'thank you' to the team and everyone involved on the day.”
