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.

This is our inaugural year for its charity fundraising efforts and I know 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. 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.

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.

JustGiving

Please take the time to visit our JustGiving fundraising page it shows the work we do at Mellors Catering Services, together to raise money for charity. You'll see our fundraising target on the right and by registering an activity or donating to one of our fundraising pages. You can help us smash this goal and really make a difference. We chose donating through JustGiving because it is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never share them with anyone or send you unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. They'll make sure Gift Aid (an additional 25%) is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer, too. That means more money goes to the charity, faster, with JustGiving.

We'll keep you updated throughout the year as to what we’ve got planned, but most importantly we want to know what events you’ve got planned and if you need any support just give us a call or check out our web page with loads of advice and good ideas www.justgiving.com/company/Mellors
