Helping Others

Mayflex Cares. All together, Helping Others

At Mayflex we care about our staff and the wider community. In May 2017 we set up a charity committee of 15 members of staff across the business to give a far greater focus on charitable activities, both in terms of raising money but also giving time and even blood, to help others.

The staff across the business have been split into four randomly picked groups, each denoted by a colour, the teams will compete against each other to see who can do the best in the various activities, thereby creating a good team spirit and ideally leading to a greater fundraising effort.

Mayflex staff will nominate the charities that are closest to their hearts for us to focus our efforts and fund raising on.

Recent activities have included;

Walk All Over Cancer
