The BaxterStorey Foundation charity has been renamed the WSH Foundation to enable all businesses within the catering group to contribute funds.
Established in 2009 to channel BaxterStorey's charitable fundraising, the Foundation supports local schools in establishing kitchen gardens, and donations are regularly made to other charities, including Hospitality Action and Springboard.
All WSH companies - BaxterStorey, Benugo, Caterlink, Holroyd Howe and Portico - will now be able to raise funds for the Foundation, with a new board of trustees appointed to oversee the Foundation.
Alastair Storey (pictured), chief executive of WSH, commented: "We felt it was appropriate to rename it the WSH Foundation so we can capture the wide array of fundraising undertaken in our other companies and maximise the donations we can award."
WSH's School Kitchen Garden aims to help children to be more aware of how food is grown and the journey of "field to plate". To date, the Foundation has awarded 38 schools with a kitchen garden, totalling over £68,000.
