Working with local communities

We're committed to being a good neighbour by supporting our communities with both our time and expertise. By supporting our employees and businesses across a spectrum of charitable activity and fundraising, we continue to build strong relationships with our guests and neighbours and give back to the communities in which we trade.

Employee donations programme

The employee donations programme helps individual Mitchells & Butlers' employees support a personal charity event or challenge of their choice. This year we have donated around £12,000 through this initiative, to a large number of local and national causes including Cancer Research UK, Great Ormond Street Hospital, Sheffield Mind, Parkinson's UK, MS UK and many more.

Supporting Marie Curie

We are supporting Marie Curie again - businesses across our Nicholson's, Vintage Inns, Toby Carvery and Ember Inns brands worked together to support the Marie Curie Great Daffodil Appeal during March. The restaurants and pubs sold the famous daffodil pins and raised more than £6,000 for the charity.

Big Hearted Brands

We have continued to raise funds for Cancer Research UK. Up and down the country our teams have been bust holding fundraising events, all of which have helped to raise over £26,000 for the charity this year.

Vintage Inns are delighted to have joined forces with the NSPCC and are supporting the charity through special discounts for its supporters and taking part in the Go Green for Halloween initiative.

In June Toby Carvery showed their support for the armed forces by offering all military personnel a free carvery meal on Armed Forces Day. The offer was open to all military personnel, from serving troops and reserves to veterans and cadets and around 7,700 meals were donated by Toby Carvery teams across the country.

This summer the RNLI and Nicholson's pubs joined forces to promote the charity's Respect the Water campaign. Across 78 sites, Nicholson's helped to spread the safety messages, as well as donating money to the RNLI during the brand's Fish Festival.

All Bar One has been working with Shelter since 2016 to help support the charity's work with millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness issues through their advice, support and legal services. All Bar One supported Shelter with donations at Christmas – 50p from every limited edition festive dish sold, as well as other in-bar activity during the year, such as donations from breakfast dishes sold. So far, they have raised £20,000 for the charity.

Once again, we supported the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal selling thousands of poppies to raise funds for the thousands of serving and ex-Service people. Toby Carvery has also made the Roya British Legion its official charity partner for 2017-2018.

Birmingham Children's Hospital

The Company continues to support a local charity, close to many colleagues' hearts, Birmingham Children's Hospital. Over the past two years the Retail Support Centre Social Committee has organised a series of fundraising events for Birmingham Children's Hospital including sponsoring a bear as part of the Midlands' wide Big Sleuth fundraising activity which saw 100 bear sculptures in the city's streets, parks and open spaces. Money has also been raised through a sky dive, a mud run, abseils, leg waxing and cake sales. Over the course of FY17 M&B raised £15,000 and we are looking forward to another year of fundraising in 2018.
