The Mahirs Foundation
The Mahirs Foundation
As well as providing a top class events service, Mahirs are keen to ensure that they have a positive impact on the community and environment.
“As a business grows, so does it’s impact on the world around us.
We are very aware of this, we aim to minimise our impact on the environment
and use our resources to give something back to the community.
It is an integral part of Mahirs that we invest in our own employees
as well as helping those in need.”
Every year we choose a different charity to support. Funds are raised primarily through our food tasting sessions, we also have a ‘dress down day’ on the last day of every month and a sponsored challenge that everyone at Mahirs is involved in.
The Charities we choose are often of personal significance to the Mahirs team and our surrounding area.

Ladies Fighting Breast Cancer
Amount Raised: £1645.38
Ladies Fighting Breast Cancer was established in 2000 by Veronica Kumeta and the late Sue Macmaster, after their friend Carol Knaggs was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Having raised money for Breast Cancer before the idea was to control where the money went, rather than giving it to national charities, so they contacted the Queen Elizabeth Birmingham and started working exclusively with them.
