We believe that running a business is about looking after our clients, our staff and also our communities. Contributing to good causes and helping improve our local communities is very important to us. We regularly donate our time, money and food to local causes we believe in. Here’s some of what we have been up to;
Edendale Primary School Edible Gardens
Hamish and his partner Karen initiated the idea of vegetable gardens and an orchard at their daughters’ schoolin 2008. An enthusiastic response from the principal, Rosemary Vivien and several of the teachers and parents saw this idea grow into a flourishing orchard of over 50 fruit trees and ever expanding vegetable gardens. The gardens have been integrated into the school curriculum with the Garden to Table trust programme. For years Karen spent many hours maintaining and developing the gardens and also writing a blog about the process. Hamish attended all the weekend working bees that he could and donated money for everything from bags of compost to the garden shed. If you would like any information about gardening in schools please contact us, we are happy to share our experience and would love to see this happen in all schools.
Fruit Trees for Auckland
Hamish and Karen have also been involved in supporting Fruit Trees for Auckland an amazing project initiated by an amazing lady, Judith Holtebrinck, who runs Mount Eden Village People. Donating time and money to this community project will see many of our local streets, parks and schools filled with local produce for local people. Please contact us if you would like to become involved or can assist in any way!!
World Child Cancer Foundation
Hi Hamish, I just wanted to say a huge thank-you for so generously catering our event for World Child Cancer on Friday 5th August. It was a fantastic event and made a good amount of money for the charity. There were many many comments about the delicious food and the lovely presentation. Thank you so much to you and your team for donating your time, services and of course the food. The organised and calm way you run the kitchen definitely rubs off on everyone else and makes for a stress free experience. It was a pleasure to work with you, Kind Regards,
Kiri Last, World Child Cancer
Dress for Success
Hi Hamish, Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for all your hard work in getting the food together for last night. I had so many comments from guests about how fantastic the food was. I couldn’t have done it all without your support. It was very much appreciated and didn't go unnoticed, especially since you are a very busy man. I was very happy with the way things went and the night worked out to be a great success! Thanks so much again. You’re an absolute star!
