Global catering company Sodexo, has raised £1,000 for the Mozambique cyclone relief, in collaboration with Oasis Academies.
The caterer pledged to donate 20p for every hotel meal sold, across 31 secondary and 13 primary schools, over 3,000 meals were sold.
Sodexo teams at the individual schools extended their fundraising efforts to include cake sales and raffles which helped contribute £200 to the total amount raised.
Part of Oasis’ global work in Mozambique includes delivering a number of programmes from water sanitising, livelihood improvement programmes through to creation of a grinding mill social enterprise. The money raised will go to providing emergency assistance in Mozambique to help rebuild communities after two cyclones hit the nation in March and April.
Philip Beaumont, national director of academies at Oasis Community Learning, said; “We are exceptionally grateful of Sodexo for supporting Oasis Mozambique following the devastating cyclone a few weeks ago by pledging 20p for each hot meal sold as part of World Health Day 2019 which will enable important work to take place and help rebuild communities we serve in Mozambique.”
Karen Scammell, Sodexo’s national account director for Oasis Academies, added: “We were pleased to be able to support Oasis’ work in Mozambique through this fundraiser. The amount raised is a testament to our teams’ commitment and strong partnership we have with Oasis Academies. I am proud of the hard work our teams put into raising money and we will continue to support Oasis with more ideas in the future.”
