Salvation Army Appeal

Christmas is not always a joyful period for some families, and we understand that with the cost-of-living crisis, more families than ever are in need. Our staff have generously donated towards Children’s Christmas presents and a Food Bank Appeal for the Salvation Army

A Transit van full, was delivered late last week, and all donations have been gratefully received.

MVK Charity Fund Raiser

This year we chose ROSY for the M V Kelly Quiz Charity Fundraiser, and we raised an amazing £12,416.50!!

ROSY fund additional Respite nursing care at home for children with chronic, life limiting or terminal illness in Oxfordshire.

 

There is also a very personal link to the charity; one of our long-standing employees Jo, her father George who was secretary and chairman of ROSY sadly passed away earlier this year. We felt that not only are we raising money for a great cause, but it is also a nice way to help carry on all his great work.

 

We would like to thank everyone for a great evening and for all generous donations received.

This year we have partnered with our local primary school Cranmore Primary. During the summer holidays, we resurfaced their pre-school play area, to make it a larger, safer space for the children to enjoy.

We have received this wonderful card from the school to say thank you with pictures of the children enjoying their new space.

We have been working closely with Betel UK to make a difference to people's lives. MV Kelly have recently substantially funded and helped build the new Manna Farm. This provides a comfortable home for those who suffer with addiction during their 18-month (minimum) recovery programme. Whilst living at the farm they will be working hard within one of the numerous charitable businesses (Furniture Restoration/ Gardening/ Shops and House Clearance). Manna Farm when complete will be able to accommodate 100 people within their community.

Betel UK Refurbishment

We have now moved onto our second project where we will be supporting the refurbishment/ extension to the original Manna Farm building. Works are underway, and updates will be posted.

Betel UK is close to our heart, and we are proud to work in partnership with this Charity.
