We would not be able to do all the great work we do without the support of Mitie volunteers, our clients and our suppliers. 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

Supply chain and client support for the Mitie Foundation

Supply chain and client support for the Mitie Foundation

Sixteen teams competed at Woburn for the Mitie Foundation Charity Golf Trophy this year. The winning team were Konica Minolta, pictured, but all agreed the day was a great way to build strong relationships and support a good cause too.

The weather was wonderful and the greens were in tip top condition, and after a long day hosted by Golf legend Mickey Walker OBE, the teams enjoyed a three course meal at the Russell Lounge.

Over £18,000 was raised to support social enterprises aimed at improving employment chances for people with barriers to employment. One of the social enterprise ideas in the early-planning stage is to transform an eighteenth century building into a training academy to help young people with learning disabilities to improve their employment chances in hospitality, catering, retail, food hygiene, customer services and self-confidence.

Suppliers, clients and Mitie colleagues are invited to collaborate with the Mitie Foundation to make this academy a reality by providing in-kind support or advice by contacting the Foundation team at Next year's event is already in the planning stage, with plans to extend the invite to suppliers, clients and the wider business teams.


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!
