Our first donation to the Children's Food Trust!

As you may already know, we entered into a partnership with the Children's Food Trust last year and agreed to make a donation to them for every item we sell. Well, we've sold loads of items over the past few months, so we are very excited to announce that we've just handed over our first cheque to them... for £8000!!

The Children’s Food Trust is a national charity which exists to protect every child’s right to eat better and, so, to do better. Their work includes developing healthy school menus and cooking skills with children. Our parent company PKL has worked with the Children’s Food Trust on a number of projects recently, so here at Mid West, we couldn't wait to get involved too!

With our lovely ex-hire equipment selling so well, Lee Vines, our sales and marketing director, was able to present a cheque for £8000 to the Children’s Food Trust at their offices in Sheffield.

“We are very happy to support the Children’s Food Trust with this donation,” said Lee. “Their work, in encouraging more children, schools and parents around the country to have a positive experience with food is very important. We also hope that many schools benefited by being able to buy this ex-hire equipment at heavily discounted prices. School catering managers can now provide more for their students that they wouldn’t have been able to do otherwise.”

Children's Food Trust Chief Executive, Judy Hargadon, said, "This donation will help us reach even more children - whether through our research programme, our work to improve food in early years settings and in schools, or our work to help even more children learn to cook."

If you've bought any equipment from us over the past few months, then a hearty (but not too violent) slap on the back to you for playing your part! Our agreement with the Children's Food Trust is still in place, so if you buy any equipment from us now, money will go into the pot towards the next cheque..!
