MJM Marine has donated an amazing £31,706 to the Friends of Rathore School Starburst Sensory Project.

This money was raised during 2019 through a charity partnership with the school. The total raised by employees was matched by the McConville family to get to this phenomenal total.

Throughout the year the team at MJM Marine organised a series of events including a charity Golf Day with suppliers, a Spinathon in Buttercrane Shopping Centre, coffee mornings and raffles. The apprentice team at MJM Marine also made hundreds of Christmas decorations which were decorated by supporters from across the area and sold to add to the charity total.

Gary Annett, CEO of MJM Marine said, “We are absolutely delighted to have handed over this sum to Rathore today. We know it will make a real difference in their efforts to improve the sensory facilities for more than 200 young people who attend the school and their families.”

Brian McConville, Chair of MJM Group added, “The McConville family, the management and the team at MJM Marine have been very touched by our interactions with the students and teachers at Rathore this year. It was great to welcome students to MJM Marine and to our events and to have members of our social committee attend events hosted at the school. We wish the team at Rathore every success for the future and in the delivery of their sensory facilities.”

Caroline Currie, Principal at Rathore said, “We are absolutely blown away by this total from MJM Marine. It has been a wonderful partnership and we have really enjoyed working with the MJM Marine team over the past year. The money raised will make such a difference for the pupils at our school and will leave a legacy for many years to come. I would like to personally thank Brian, the McConville family, the social committee, Gary Annett, the management team and all the employees, suppliers and supporters of MJM Marine who got involved in this fundraising.  This phenomenal amount of money has pushed us over our original £100,000 target which we had set for the Starburst Sensory Project and will allow us to bring more facilities to our school.”

MJM Marine is a leading global cruise ship outfitter headquartered in Newry.
