Dandara Living is pleased to be supporting The MAZI Project, a Bristol-based charity which creates an inclusive environment for disadvantaged young people to feel part of the community through the power of food.

Its new premises at Bedminster’s St Catherine’s Trading Estate have been provided by Dandara Living at a low rent, with part funded business rates and a secure lease so the charity can continue to thrive. In addition, Dandara Living has provided free skilled workers to prepare the building before the charity carries out its fit out works.

Melanie Vaxevanakis, founder of the MAZI Project, said:

“Dandara Living has been brilliant, helping us financially, with some of the kit we need, and by getting their team to prepare our new home for its final fit-out.”

The MAZI Project provides weekly recipe kits and cooking workshops to 16–25-year-olds in various locations in Bristol.

Dandara Living’s Zoe Sharpe said:

“We were blown away by the work that The MAZI Project does and what it has already achieved. It reminds us that everyone can do something to support people who need a helping hand."

“We acquired the building at St. Catherine’s Trading Estate as part of our plan to build new homes at Bedminster Green, including much-needed affordable homes. Being able to use this space for such an amazing charity is fantastic – and we’re glad to have been able to support The MAZI Project prepare and move into its new home.”

The charity is now fundraising for £20,000 to help get its new premises ready, enabling the team to reach and help more young people across the city.

As well as donating to The MAZI Project’s fundraiser, people and businesses can get involved through organising corporate volunteer days or through monthly sponsorship or donate here: https://localgiving.org/charity/the-mazi-project/ .
