So often we hear of funding issues within local clubs and societies and the drive we all have to do to raise additional funds for Kit, vehicles and travel. It’s a never ending problem for us all, and so often it’s only a few who do all the work for everybody to benefit from.

At “Kendal Meat Company” We like to think we have a very positive solution to help with these problems. A solution where everybody benefits and it helps raise your Club, Society, Team or Association with funds throughout the year on a weekly basis. Overall a win, win, win outcome for you, your members and ourselves.
How does it work I hear you ask? Simply by going on line your members can order their weekly meat needs from us at fantastic factory prices, and you (The Club) will receive a 3% value on everything they purchase. Orders are placed by 12 Noon the day before and collected through Click and Collect @ the factory the next day or on the day (Monday to Saturday) when you require,

We have a really easy to follow ordering process, even for the techno dinosaur like myself. When you place your order, the customer selects their nominated club, society, group or charity who then receive 3% of the gross sale value paid by BACS monthly into the club account.

Clubs and charities need to be established online by sending in a request for contact. If you order on line and don't have a nominated Club Kmc will donate the 3 % to one of two selected charities we have selected. These national / local charities will change on a periodic basis.

This is an innovative way for us all to benefit within a” win, win, win scenario” – If you would like to discuss how simple it all is, and how your club and members could benefit we would be happy to come and explain things further with you either at a club meeting day or evening.
