CHARITY PARTNERSHIP: Mivan and the Gaitway organisation join forces for 2024

INTERIOR fit-out and bespoke joinery company, Mivan is thrilled to unveil the Gaitway Organisation as its selected charity partner for 2024.

Following a company-wide vote, employees passionately chose to support Gaitway in its mission to assist children and young people, aged two to 25, grappling with mobility challenges, primarily arising from neurological conditions like Cerebral Palsy.

The Gaitway Organisation delivers invaluable services, including local therapy sessions and facilitation of overseas treatments based on the Andras Peto method.

Their holistic approach extends beyond physical development, encompassing emotionally enriching outings and social activities.

The partnership, spanning one year, will witness Mivan’s steadfast commitment to fostering fundraising initiatives and volunteering opportunities among its workforce.

Already underway, a robust calendar of events and activities promises to galvanize support and generate vital funds.

We all look forward to a successful partnership and thanks for your support.”
