Every year at MW we put our heads together to come up with a Christmas gift that reflects our company values. Last year it was a festive scented candle wrapped in luxury packaging; this year our friends and collaborators will receive something a little different.

This Christmas we are supporting a homeless charity called Jimmy’s, an emergency accommodation shelter and support centre for the homeless which first opened in Cambridge in 1995. On behalf of each person on the MW 2017 Christmas gift list, a homeless person will receive a hot meal and Jimmy’s will receieve a financial donation this festive season.

For the past two decades the Jimmy’s team has worked tirelessly to keep our most vulnerable people safe, warm, and off the streets. At this time of year their job is made even harder, which is why we decided to launch this campaign.

In addition to each meal and donation, MW will be sending out a specially constructed Christmas gift box. The internal pages in these boxes were generously donated by screen printer Lorenz Boegli, who is based in Switzerland and has been perfecting his craft for over 25 years.

We hope you’ll agree that it’s a special gift for a truly special cause.
