Mitchells & Butlers Toasts Third Anniversary with Barnardo's

Mitchells & Butlers is launching the 3rd anniversary of the Company’s charity partnership with Barnardo’s by donating £50,000 to the children’s charity.

Mitchells & Butlers, the UK’s leading operator of managed pubs and pub restaurants, celebrated the donation to Barnardo’s by holding a champagne toast at their headquarters in Fleet Street, Birmingham.

Mitchells & Butlers selected Barnardo’s as its corporate charity partner in April 2005, by launching the ‘Routes to a Brighter Future’ fundraising campaign. The three year £150,000 corporate donation has been used to support two Barnardo’s projects in the Midlands - Dudley Community Routes in the West Midlands and the South West Birmingham Family Project, Bartley Green - and another project in Harrogate, Dr B’s Restaurant and Coffee Shop.

Over the past two years, Mitchells & Butlers’ corporate staff have raised an additional £20,000 through a series of fundraising activities and events.

Steve O’Connor, Barnardo’s director of UK Funding, says: “It’s great to once again thank Mitchells & Butlers and its staff for this generous support. Like Mitchells & Butlers, we pride ourselves on providing the best service and help to thousands of children, young people and families across the country.”

Mitchells & Butlers’ chief executive, Tim Clarke comments: “Mitchells & Butlers is proud to be sponsoring Barnardo’s for a third year. Continuing our support means our donation, as well as the individual fundraising of our staff, generate a long lasting benefit to our Barnardo’s projects.”
