Nycomm cooked up a charity treat by hosting a staff BBQ which raised hundreds of pounds for a local food bank.

Developed by our Mars Group, the event was spearheaded by ‘masterchefs’ Gary Redshaw and organiser Natalie Wynn, supported by fellow organiser Hannah Elly and Esther Park.

The main lunchtime get-together was held at Julian Niman House as staff enjoyed burgers, hot dogs and ice creams – despite some cool and windy weather.

“Thank you so much to Hannah and Natalie for organising the event and to Gary for his excellent chef skills,” HR Manager Esther remarked. “A big thanks too to Duncan Lavery, Chris Musgrave, Steve Whittington, Steve Morgan and Sam Sargent for helping make the BBQ run so smoothly.”

Mars Group representatives in other locations were also busy feeding their colleagues, with an office picnic in Leeds (thanks Emma Smith), pizza & ice-cream in Bury, pizzas at Trafford Park and a nice hamper for the team down in Bristol. The Videonations team opted for an early-autumn pizza instead. In total £450 was raised for Salford Food Bank.
