MFG are proud to support Launchpad Reading as their Charity of the Year for 2019.
Launchpad is a charity (Registered Charity No. 279859) that helps some of Reading’s most vulnerable and disadvantaged people to turn their lives around and fulfil their potential. Its mission is to prevent people from becoming homeless and to support those who are homeless to rebuild their lives.
It provides three core services: homelessness prevention, homes for those in housing need and a programme of activities to support people to rebuild their lives. Every year, over 1,200 people are helped through these three services.
Running, walking, swimming or dressing up; you name it – if it means raising money for our charity of the year; we’ll give it a go! Please sponsor MFG to help us raise as much money for Launchpad Reading as possible.
MFG proudly sponsor Launchpad’s annual carol service each year. Held at Reading Minster, Carols by Candlelight is a much-loved event that marks the start of the festive season. Last year the event was on 6th December and was Launchpad’s 11th Carols by Candlelight service. On the night alone, it raised more than £8,000 from ticket sales and donations.
