Charities and fund-raising activities

Market Marketing Ltd. is first and foremost a commercial enterprise.  However, whenever and wherever there is a possibility to combine the commercial activities of the company with fund raising events the company will endeavour to promote the activities of WaterAid.

To this end, Market Marketing Ltd. has decided to work in association with WaterAid, to raise funds for the charity and promote their activities.  This will be the focus of the charitable work of Market Marketing Ltd.

There will be many occasions where events will be entirely held for WaterAid, the proceeds of the event, or a high percentage of the proceeds, will sent to the charity, depending on the types of events.

Vendors, traders and fundraisers who wish to promote their chosen charities by buying pitches at Market Marketing events are welcome to do so.  No prior permission to use their pitch for a charity needs to be given to Market Marketing, however, such information would be appreciated as we may be able to assist or co-operate in various ways.  If a vendor or organisation wishes to promote their charity by organising an event in co-operation with Market Marketing an application should be made to this end, using the form which is available on the website.
