we've finally had a response from Mars and they're asking us what support we would like:
What is it you specifically need from us? As we have a few options:
1. Food – you know our brands – we make products that need to be served hot – just thinking if you have the capacity to work with our products just need to work up the plans with your family events eg we would not work well with BBQ events etc.
2. Money – if you wanted to apply for financial support this would be an application via our website which is www.marsinthecommunity.co.uk
3. Associate Time- if you would be able to let me know the timetable of events then I could promote the work to associates to see if we can get some volunteers to get involved.
Please use this space to post suggestions and ideas of what you think would be the best direction for us to go.
I'll let Mars know once we're all decided.
