Phil-Mandley

Lt Cdr Phil Mandley RN (Retired), was appointed by MML as a non-executive director. He has produced a sound training and development programme for graduates and apprenticeships, coupled with the upscaling of all current staff. This has already resulted in the employment of 3 x Graduates (one of which is the son of a former RN Officer) and 2 x Apprentices, with the company actively pursuing further candidates. The graduates took part in a tree planting event in a Hampshire woodland (maintained by Lt Cdr Manley). Where they were involved in the planting of 240 x trees. As part of the graduate programme, they are also required to give up 1 x day per year, in pursuit of helping veterans in the community.

 

MML has recently delivered beach clean ups in Portsmouth (with 4 x participants being veterans) and now sponsor the “Big Blue Clean Up”. Our first international beach clean up was conducted in Tunisia, in April 23, with more planned in other countries.

Wesley-McGuinness

Serving Petty Officer Wes McGuiness is a Royal Navy Powerlifter and began this sport just over a decade ago. He has since represented GB at the highest level of Powerlifting in the UK. Due to the nature of his sport, Wes finds it very hard to find sponsors, MML sponsored him £2,000 last season and have sponsored him again for the 2024 season, this will greatly assist him with the financial burden of the season. MML also sponsored the son of a serving Army officer, running the London marathon 2024 in aid of “Childhood First”, for the amount of £550.

MML have partnered with the Aster foundation – enabling better lives in and around our communities and combating poverty. We have signed an enduring 12 month agreement, with an initial sponsorship of £10,000. This charity has a very positive impact on communities around the UK.
