Nicholsons efforts of free school meals!
During the pandemic, travel restrictions mean it has not been possible to visit the Mara region. As a consequence, the area’s economy has suffered greatly due to a lack of tourism. Despite not being able to travel in person, we have tried to help in whatever way we can. The community primary school, Ol Meoshi, was particularly affected and was struggling to provide school lunches for their 600 pupils. Thanks to our chef Frankie’s exquisite cakes and the generosity of our customers, we were able to raise enough money to feed 600 children for a term through our various Cake fundraisers.
In reality, this is possible through the hard work of the whole of the Nicholsons Team where we have kept working outside during the pandemic, and have been able to support less fortunate communities as a result.
Over the years, we will continue to support the project remotely, and also looking to continue annual projects for Nicholsons staff. This will not only help the staff engage in the project and help in its delivery but will also give those team members an opportunity to see another country and culture. We are determined that this will be a long-term project and that we will be able to see lasting progress.
