Charitable Business Winner, M K Ginder & Sons
MK Ginder and Sons were formed in 1983. They quickly introduced the concept of supporting charitable organisations and groups in the community. They have always encouraged their staff to volunteer and give their time to charitable events. Ginders help community organisations in many different ways – they have sponsored many local football teams and currently help the Fullerians to provide rugby at a grass roots level. The company has long worked in partnership with the Watford FC Community Sports and Education Trust, helping them to deliver vital projects in such diverse areas as social inclusion, health and education. Ginders organise a golf day supported by many local charities, including the Peace Hospice. The company’s donation of raffle and auction prizes to churches, scout groups and fetes has helped local people immeasurably. The British Heart Foundation was helped considerably when Ginders entered a fund-raising team for the London to Brighton Bike Ride.
The funeral of Graham Taylor was handled most sensitively by Ginders, which was highly appreciated by Watford people.
