AOK Events’ Make Unforgettable Happen Fund Supports Magic Breakfast

7 September 2023

Introducing September’s “Make Unforgettable Happen” Fund recipient:
Lucy Freer, Magic Breakfast

Who is Lucy?
Lucy used to be a great client of ours and for 10 years she used AOK Events for our venue finding, corporate hospitality and event management services.  Last year she changed job and joined Magic Breakfast, an amazing charity, as an Engagement Partner.  

Who are Magic Breakfast?
They are a registered charity providing healthy breakfasts to children and young people in the UK who arrive at school too hungry to learn. Their support ensures that children start their school day with the energy and nutrition they need to be able to make the most of their morning lessons.  A staggering 200,000 children in the UK benefit from their work.

Lucy is running in the Vitality 10k in order to raise funds for Magic Breakfast. She set herself a target of £500 and when we read that she was going to do the run dressed as a piece of toast we decided that we wanted to cover her entire sponsorship target.  Her husband and best friend are also running, dressed as a fried egg and an avocado… 

What impact could our donation have to Magic Breakfast? 
£500 could give 1,785 children the opportunity to have a nutritious breakfast one morning that otherwise may have gone without. 

Sometimes a little goes a long way and can make a huge impact to someone’s day. We chose this project as it was a brilliant cause and we wanted to say thank you to someone who was a loyal client of ours for so many years. Magic Breakfast also support a number of schools close to AOK Events offices and we are having conversations about how we can support them further in their work.

Got an idea that makes an impact? We would love to hear from you!
