Fundraising

We would not be able to do all the great work we do without the support of Mitie volunteers and Mitie's supply chain. Have a look at some of the amazing fundraising events that have already taken place below. If you would like to organise your own fundraising event for the Foundation please get in touch Foundation@mitie.com

Mitie Charity Golf Day ; Supplier engagement supporting social enterprise

Mitie suppliers continue to have a positive impact upporting the Mitie Foundation to support people with barriers to employment. As well as their support all year round, with in-kind donations, the Mitie Charity Golf day, held back in September 2016, raised a fabulous £18,453. We have been putting the money to great use and it has helped all sorts of activities across the country.

The prestigious Woburn Golf course hosted the day and ex-Solheim Cup Captain Mickey Walker offered expert advice to golfers. With support from the procurement team we invited a wide range of Mitie's top suppliers to compete on the golf course all in the name of charity. Biffa Waste Services were victorious and awarded with a claret jug trophy.

The money raised has helped benefit two major social enterprise schemes up and running. The first being a garden centre / café / academy at HMP Sudbury in Derbyshire and the second being a Café / Microsoft academy / music studio in Huddersfield, run by a charity called GDPA. You can read more about these projects here.

If you have a supplier interested in supporting this year’s Charity Golf Day at Woburn on October 5th, please contact us on Foundation@mitie.com  

3 peaks challenge

3 peaks challenge

The National Three Peaks Challenge is an event in which participants attempt to climb the highest mountains of England, Scotland and Wales, all within 24 hours. Over the 24 hour period, the graduates climbed Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon, walking a horizontal distance of 26 miles and a vertical distance of 3000 metres, whilst also driving 470 miles!

The Mitie graduates have been keen volunteers with the Mitie Foundation, experiencing first-hand the inspiring work that we do to support so many people. Therefore they kindly decided to allocate their fundraising to the projects we work on and run across the country.

On the day, the graduates started the challenge in the early hours of the morning at the foot of Ben Nevis, before travelling down to Scafell Pike and then finally climbing Snowdon the following morning - hopefully returning to their minibus inside the 24 hour target and in time for a celebratory photo.

We want to say a massive thank you for all their hard work in fundraising and in actually climbing the mountains. Well done!
