Staff members and customers of Mellors Catering Services have always been very generous with their time and money raising efforts for a whole host of charities. This year we wanted to consolidate our efforts to support a very worthy and relevant charity, Zoë’s Place.
The coming year offers a whole host of exciting new challenges to join in. If you would like to get involved with any events – or have an idea for your own to raise money for a charity of your choice, we are here to support you all the way. We would love to hear what events you have planned to raise money for charity.
We're sure you are already planning to climb mountains, run marathons, cycle thousands of miles, pound pavements in the middle of the night, organize quizzes, wear fancy dress, sponsored slimming, sponsored “anything”, concerts and of course do what we do best - give Mary Berry a run for her money with our epic cake bake sales.
Our charity leader this year is Stella Bowyer and she can be contacted on 07956 886 315 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Water for Kids
We are the nominated contract caterer for two academies in the North East and we agreed we would donate 5p for every bottle of still water sold to the academies chosen charity, Water for Kids. The Water for Kids charity helps young people have access to safe water for the first time.
During 2016 school year, we helped raise over £1000 for the charity.
Due to our continued support, the charity kindly issued us with a plaque to display at both academies to show their appreciation.
