Today’s member wholesaler Wanis celebrates 50th anniversary

Today’s Group member wholesaler, Wanis International Foods is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, and with the anniversary has pledged to raise £50,000 for five different charities.

The team has been running a host of fundraising activities throughout the year including sponsored 10k runs by the leadership team Sanjay and Kapil Wadhwani as well as other challenges including a ‘£1 for a 1lb’ diet programme and a ‘sponsored silence’ by the most talkative person in the business.

50anniversaryAs part of the charitable bid and in-keeping with its African, Caribbean and Asian foods heritage, Wanis hosted a carnival event at their depot in Leyton, East London. Festivities taking place during the day included a feast of different flavours being served up from a marquee, a steel band, dancers and fairground games. The day raised over £1,000 towards the £50,000 goal.

The money raised will be shared equally between five charities, all of which have a connection with Wanis, locally and internationally.

The charities are:

  • The African Caribbean Leukaemia Trust (ACLT), UK
  • Guru Nanak Trust Fund, Home for the Disabled, Ranchi, India
  • Leyton Orient Community Sports Programme, London
  • St Anne’s Church, Greenwich Town, Jamaica
  • Waltham Forest Cinema Trust, London

Sanjay Wadhwani, MD at Wanis said: “The carnival was about thanking our customers, celebrating world food, having a bit of fun and of course raising money for our chosen charities. We were lucky to get beautiful weather and we thank everyone who attended.”
