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.”

Charitable Work

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.

WPH Counselling– Walsall Psychological Help

Fundraising In Progress!

Mahirs Experience are pleased to formally announce our adopted Charity of the Year for 2018, WPH Counselling.

WPH Counselling is a Walsall based registered charity which is a Nationally Accredited BACP Service (British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy) which offers a range of professional, free and confidential counselling.

Mahirs Experience are particularly focused on helping WPH Counselling with its Teenage Service which is delivered across the Borough of Walsall in various schools, other venues and its main Centre at The Haven, 55 Upper Forster Street. Walsall.

The teenage years are a time that has been described as the most confusing, challenging, frustrating and fascinating stage of human development. During this time of conflict and growth, changes, physically, sexually and emotionally occur.

This period can seem, to teenagers, a time when no-one understands them, leading to depression, anxiety, anger, desperation and loneliness which can ultimately put pressure on other relationships, particularly parents and schools. Peer pressure can often tempt teenagers into antisocial activity i.e. drugs, drink and often bullying can be a part of their everyday lives.

WPH Counselling offers a valued and needed service, provided by highly qualified, BACP Accredited Youth Counsellors. The service has been successfully operating over many years and generously funded by CCG, Children in Need and independent personal donations. However, at a time of National Austerity cut backs, counselling positions at WPH have been put in jeopardy.

The team at Mahirs Experience chose WPH Counselling as they wanted to play their part in helping raise the profile of the excellent work the organisation does and fund such a valuable service through donations of its food tasting revenue and other sponsorship related activities. We look forward to working with the team at WPH Counselling throughout 2018!

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.
