This year we are continuing a tradition of fundraising of which we are very proud.

With challenging events including long distance walks, cycles, overnight mountain climbs added to smaller events too numerous to mention we have managed to raise over £300,000 for charities.

Every year M.V.Kelly Ltd settle upon a set of charities close to the hearts of our workers and hope to make a great difference. Local children’s hospitals, hospices, cancer charities are amongst those who have benefitted.

To do this we rely on the generosity and compassion of those who donate raffle & auction prizes, make contributions and give their time to the cause.

Trussell Trust

Thanks to every one in our Shirley, Coalville & Stafford offices for collecting and delivering much needed provisions for their local Trussell Trust foodbanks.

The Trussell Trust provide an invaluable service especially during these times where many people are not able to earn money.

Pictured here is the Coalville office contribution.

Betel-UK.jpg

Betel - Nottingam Project

M.V.Kelly are working for the charity Betel UK with a project to build sheltered accommodation for 48 people requiring a community based recovery from addiction.

The job includes groundworks plus a new foul water treatment plant and associated soakaway.

Betel UK is an independent Christian charity for men, women and families affected by the hardships that lead to social exclusion, especially homelessness, drug and alcohol abuse and long-term unemployment.

Paul and Karen Whelan are supporting this charity throughout the build. Many M.V. Kelly suppliers have thankfully assisted Paul and Karen to allow their funding to travel further through the build process.

Protective Face Mask Donation

We are pleased to say we have donated nearly 150 protective face masks to Sandwell & West Birmingham NHS Trust.

The stock has gone straight to front line community teams particularly district nurses, palliative & care homes in Sandwell. They will be used when treating some of the most vulnerable patients but also worn by staff at high risk (& often forgotten) in the community. 

Nice to be able to do something, no matter how small in these difficult times.

We are delighted to be able to help ROSY in this way and wish them luck in the future.

Importantly our thanks also go to the Wilson Arms who hosted the evening and provided an excellent buffet. A fantastic friendly pub great for a carvery and a decent pint!

Unsurprisingly the quiz was won by Nigel Harris's team  'Scumbag College' who donated the cash prize straight back to our charities.
