Good to Give

Giving back is close to everyone’s heart at Delicious. As a certified Green Mark company and member of the 1% for the Planet movement, not only do we strive to make our events eco-friendly, but actively support charities and partner with companies that give back to the community wherever we can.

Being conscious and aware that we and most of our clients want to ‘do’ good deeds and support causes where possible, we have put together a list of some wonderful initiatives with ‘at home’ events and activities…

We are bringing you the best tasting, most feel good edit that we are loving this season.
