Stoke on Trent-based distributor Ritchie Catering Equipment is fundraising for its local hospice, Dougie Mac, during a series of open days this month.
The events are open to everyone, trade and retail, and will be taking place at the distributor’s newly-opened trade shop in Newcastle Under Lyme, from Wednesday 26 September to Friday 28 September 2018.
Demonstrations and displays are planned, including Rational ‘Cooking Live’, veg prep and cocktail-making sessions as well as crockery and glassware displays, kitchen and bar design, competitions and discounts.
As well as offering complimentary, freshly baked cakes and specialist barista made coffee, Ritchie will also be donating a percentage of every sale made during the open days to Dougie Mac’s ‘Bring A Pound’ campaign.
MD David Ritchie said: “Ritchie Catering Equipment is proud to support the Dougie Mac Hospice. As a local business we know only too well how the work of the hospice touches the lives of local people and it is a privilege to support them during our open days event.”
Ritchie Catering Equipment has nearly 50 years’ experience in the industry and still remains a family owned business. The location of Stoke on Trent is central to all areas of the UK and its customers are located across the country.
