St Marks Christmas Day
The ‘St Marks Christmas Day’ is an annual event that Mash Media has run for the last 6 years. We work with a local centre in Mitcham for under-privileged children, and organise a Christmas day for those who normally wouldn’t get to celebrate Christmas as we might.
We cook them a full Christmas dinner with all the trimmings, we play games and organise prizes, we also buy each child a present as well as one for their parent/guardian.
Father Christmas turns up and reads all the children ’T’was the night before Christmas’ before giving them their presents, he spends a bit of time with the children answering their many questions before flying back off to the North Pole.
One Day at Christmas – With Love from the Events Industry
This event was born our of our St Marks Christmas Day event, with the aim of bringing the industry together to positively affecting a larger community who may normally spend Christmas time alone.
Mash Media run the event at ExCeL London, with the help and support of Brand Events and the International Live Events Association who help us bring the whole thing together.
This year we brought together 500 elderly people from different communities around ExCeL London; we arranged transport for them to and from the venue, we themed a room at the venue, arranged a children’s choir, a brass band, a singer, a Christmas lunch, a cheeky Santa and Naughty Elf amongst over things.
As well as supporting organisations and initiatives within the events industry, we also encourage the industry to join us in supporting other charities. We are regular supporters of Macmillan Cancer Research and The Lord Taverners in a number of our events, both fun and serious, within the events industry.
