Celebrating its 21st anniversary this year, Belfast-based NOW Group has launched its Christmas Guide for Corporate businesses across Northern Ireland.


A social enterprise supporting those with disabilities into training programmes and jobs with a future, while boosting the social value of many businesses in the process, the NOW Group facilitates its work via services including a catering business, Loaf Catering, and more recently a pottery retail enterprise, Loaf Pottery.


Recognising a need for businesses across Northern Ireland to gift with purpose this Christmas, the NOW Group is thrilled to offer just that.


Corporate Gifting

Pottery with a Purpose: Loaf Pottery is an Irish pottery brand based in Crawfordsburn, Co. Down, with a social purpose at heart. The profits from the beautiful, handcrafted artisan pottery are reinvested to support NOW Group services. Offering a range of coloured mugs and/or bespoke personalisation to compliment your brand, the Loaf Pottery mugs make the perfect gift this Christmas.


Corporate Catering

With four cafes located across Ireland, Loaf Catering provides award winning local food for parties, functions and events. To celebrate the festive season, it has launched a Christmas Menu, offering hot and cold food options to suit all events.


Our mugs and pottery items are the perfect gift this Christmas,” comments Diane Hill, from the NOW Group. “Not to mention the fact that our catering service is ideal for Christmas parties, business brunches, networking lunches and so much more!


“The best thing about choosing to support Loaf Catering and Loaf Pottery is that all the proceeds raised will go straight back to those that need it, allowing NOW to provide support for those with learning difficulties and autism.


“By providing jobs for adults with learning difficulties, we are giving them the opportunity to develop their confidence and reach their full potential. In addition, through our programmes, we’re supplying local businesses with a pool of talented and hardworking young people – it really is a win-win for all parties.”
