As part of our ongoing commitment to community, we are delighted to announce our long-term partnership with Mid Kent Mind this Mental Health Awareness Week.

Mid Kent Mind were chosen by our team from a shortlist to become our official charity partner for the new financial year.

With food & drink so intrinsically linked to mental wellbeing, and the ongoing cost-of-living crisis having such a profound impact on mental health, we see it as a fantastic opportunity to work together to impact local communities.

More specifically, it is an opportunity to elevate the profile of mental health support in Faversham – ensuring that everyone in the local area knows where they can turn for advice and support.

We will be experimenting with a range of joint initiatives throughout the next year to encourage awareness, start meaningful conversations around mental health, and generate much-needed funding for the services which Mid Kent Mind provide. Please keep an eye on your inbox and on our social media so you can get involved!

Our CEO, Stefano, commented on the partnership:

“We are delighted to be partnering with Mid Kent Mind to drive the mental health agenda in Faversham and beyond. Food & drink is intrinsically linked with mental wellbeing, so it is a natural fit, and one where Macknade, and our team of nearly 70 staff, can make a real difference. I am excited to work with Mid Kent Mind to create a dynamic partnership that genuinely impacts our community at a time when it is needed most.”
