On track for Scalextric Shindig
Siobhan, October 12th, 2011
Here at Mando Group, we believe that one of the most important aspects of our ethos is our commitment to supporting the local community and offering aid to worthy causes through our charitable enterprise, the Mando Group Foundation.
Working in partnership with the Community Foundation for Merseyside, the Foundation enables our staff & clients to offer their time and energy to helping those who need it.
To this end, we’re hosting a charity fundraising event on 10th November.
The event, ‘Motor Mayhem’, hopes to encourage participation from our friends & clients by appealing to their inner-child with its Scalextric theme.
For a charitable donation, participating clients will be presented with a plain Scalextric car chassis – a blank slate for their company to design & decorate in any way they see fit, before pitting their incredible electric car racing skills against others.
In addition to the nostalgia-fuelled main event, the evening will include live music and a charity auction with some great prizes. All proceeds from the evening will go to Mando Group’s Adopted Charity for 2011, Relative Comfort, which is an appeal set up by the Countess of Chester to create a ‘home from home’ environment for relatives of patients who are in the critical care unit. The Foundation adopts a charity on an annual basis and encourages individuals at the company to put forward charities which are close to their hearts.
We’re supporting Relative Comfort this year because we think that what they’re trying to do is something that more critical care units need to think about – support not only for patients, but their relatives, because everyone could need this support at some point in their life.
Our aim with this event was to come up with something that was a little bit different, that would have universal appeal – and we thought that the Scalextric theme was a great way of exciting people who maybe wouldn’t ordinarily consider attending an event like this. Hopefully, it’s the first of many more exciting events from the Mando Group Foundation.
So please – throw down the scalextric gauntlet, relive a bit of your childhood, and help support a great cause – join us for some Motor Mayhem!
