Caterer Carringtons announces Everton in the Community as its chosen charity
Liverpool-based Carringtons Catering will raise vital funds to support the charity and the life-changing work the charitable arm of Everton FC undertakes across Merseyside and beyond
Carringtons Carringtons Catering has announced its chosen charity for 2018 – Everton in the Community (EitC).
The affiliation will see the Liverpool catering firm support the club’s charitable arm, which last weekend saw team members participating in the sponsored Goodison Zip Slide at the stadium.
Throughout the partnership, which aligns with EitC’s 30th birthday celebrations, Carringtons Catering will continue to raise vital funds to support the charity and the life-changing work it does across Merseyside and beyond.
Director of Carringtons and Master Chef of Great Britain, Darren Wynn, said: “At Carringtons Catering, we select a local charity each year that aligns with our company ethos and this year, Everton in the Community was the perfect choice – not least because I am an avid and lifelong blue myself.
“The impact that the charity has across Merseyside and further afield is immense, and it’s great to play an integral part in its fundraising activity and coinciding 30th birthday celebrations.”
With the partnership under way, Carringtons recently served up a menu at EitC’s Gala Dinner at St George’s Hall. The firm will also liaise with its client base to offer an ‘opt-in’ mechanism to donate directly to EitC, whilst spreading the word at its consortium of events across the city.
Executive director of Everton in the Community, Phil Duffy, added; “We are thrilled to be named as Charity of the Year for Carringtons Catering and we are looking forward to forging a strong relationship going forward.”
