Proudly Supporting Launchpad Reading

MFG are proud to support Launchpad Reading as their Charity of the Year for 2019.

Opening Doors, Changing Lives – About Launchpad Reading

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.

Ashlee’s Sponsored SkyDive

MFG’s Ashlee Jones has volunteered to jump out of a plane at 10,000ft for an exhilarating, once-in-a-lifetime experience – all in the aim of raising money for Launchpad Reading.

By day Ashlee is MFG’s Cyber Security Specialist, but no amount of Firewalls can save him now! He’s secretly afraid of heights and was never tempted to join the parachute regiment during his career in the army; he has always felt more safe on the ground. Go Ashlee, go!

Winners of Launchpad Reading’s 2019 Annual Pancake Race!

It’s official! #TeamMFG are the winners of Launchpad Reading’s annual pancake race. The event took place on Tuesday 5th March 2019 on Reading’s Broad Street. We came runner up in 2017, but failed to make the top three in 2018… But this year, #TeamMFG were back – stronger and fitter than ever… And we were victorious!

Launchpad are a valued client of ours and we’re proud to support them whenever possible… and if that means running down Broad Street in fancy dress, then we’re in!

Instagram post 2024765479641640305_3500428066 We just wanted to say a huge "thank you" to Salil, winner of our #GrandNational #sweepstake, who has kindly donated half of the pot to @launchpadreading - our charity of the year and half to buy the team a round of coffee. 
Our MD Mark has matched Salil's charitable donation, so £35 goes to Launchpad.

Instagram post 1989882043672151642_3500428066 Substitution for Mr Ben Singyard. Bad news, guys... Ben has had to pull out of Tuesday's pancake race due to an urgent dentist appointment. We told him that "warming-up for the big day" didn't have to entail eating lots of pancakes... But do not fear, we have a great replacement up our sleeves and he's ready to race to victory! Feel the rhythm!
