For every delegate who passes through our doors we will pay for a hot 3 course meal for a local homeless or other disadvantaged person.
At Cavendish Venues we are delighted to announce that from January 2020 through to May 2020 (initially) we will cover the cost of a hot three course meal for a local disadvantaged person. We have teamed up with The Upper Room and Foodinate to provide this. In simple terms if you book a conference for 200 attendees during this period you will be helping to feed 200 homeless people during some of the coldest months of the year.
We live in the 7th richest country in the world yet 13,000,000 people in the UK live below the poverty line, 1 in 6 parents have reported going without food so they can feed their families. This is a tragedy and we have a responsibility to do what we can to address this. The hot meal is backed up with 1-to-1 support for those needing additional support, this can take many forms, a friendly ear or signposting and referring to various external partners who can help with issues such as housing/benefits and physical and mental health services.
At Cavendish Venues we acknowledge that we have a responsibility to the communities we operatein. This year we have further deepened our utter commitment to sustainability. We have built on our zero to landfill commitment by seeking to further localise our supplier base and our newest initiative is to only buy English wines. Similarly, earlier this year we teamed up with Country Landowners Associations to plant 250 trees in Dorset. Other initiatives this year include sponsoring the Society of Women Artists Annual Sculpture Award and sponsoring an Under 13’s football club.
