As part of our 20th anniversary celebrations we have donated £10,000 to our employees’ favourite charities.

BM team members were invited to nominate their most valued charities for consideration, after it was announced that the company will be making special donations in addition to its existing charitable activity.

Ten charities were selected by founders Wendy Bartlett and Ian Mitchell, along with chief executive Ian Thomas. The £10,000 will be divided equally between the 10 charities.

Executive chairman Wendy said: “We have chosen charities that are close to the hearts of our people, which was really important to us.

“bartlett mitchell has supported a number of charities over the years, both in the UK and overseas. But to celebrate our 20th birthday, we wanted to give our teams the chance to choose who would be the worthy recipients of our donation.”

Organisations that have benefitted from our support include City Harvest, which collects and redistributes surplus food to London’s most vulnerable people, UK homelessness charity Centrepoint, the Soppexcca cooperative in Nicaragua, and the Janneh Kunda village school in The Gambia.
