Wolfys stirs it up raising money for Meningtis Now

Clara Wiggins | 28th November 2019

You've heard of sowing your wild oats but here at Meningitis Now we would rather you ate them – to help us raise funds by buying a pot of porridge from one of our local supporters Wolfys

To celebrate selling their one millionth pot, Stroud-based Wolfys has pledged to donate a portion of their Black Friday sales to us. Wolfys is owned and manufactured by Kitchen Garden Foods and sells a range of savoury couscous dishes as well as porridge – which includes delicious flavours like strawberries and cream and rhubarb and ginger.

Commercial director and joint owner of Kitchen Garden Foods, James Horwood, said Black Friday – which takes place this week – was a “huge time for anyone with a product to sell”. He added that while they wanted to offer their customers a discount, this year they wanted to do something different.  

“So we are running a ‘get 15, give 15’ campaign – allowing our web customers to enjoy a 15% discount on everything while we give another 15% of profits to Meningitis Now,” he said.

“Email subscribers will also get a special discount code which they can use to give themselves a bit more money off or give a bit more to the charity”. 

Meningitis Now Corporate Fundraiser Matt Stephenson said he was delighted with Wolfys' support – which would help spread awareness about the disease as well as raise funds.

“This is an excellent way to support us – after all, who doesn’t like porridge, especially at this time of the year?” he said.

“Every pot sold will contribute to the money we spend to raise awareness, pay for vital research and of course help those living with the impact of meningitis. Thank you Wolfys – and I look forward to having my own pot of their delicious porridge on Friday morning as a brilliant way to start the day!" 

Order your Wolfys porridge this Friday 29 November and help raise money for Meningitis Now.
