M&W is a partnership between the Mahan and Wouhra families, hosting charity events across the UK.
The Mahan and Wouhra families are well established in the Midlands community and have a long history of supporting charitable causes.
The dedication to assisting worthwhile causes is a tradition that was started by Tony Wouhra MBE, the late TS Wouhra, Chairman of East End Foods plc and their good friend, the late Dr Raj Mahan.
This long standing history of philanthropy has passed from father to son and has been taken over by the next generation, Ajay & Anil Mahan and Monty & Roger Wouhra.
It is important to both the Mahan and Wouhra family members that they continue the tradition of commitment to improving the welfare of others and partnering with charities doing excellent work.

THE UK SEPSIS TRUST
Sepsis, or blood poisoning, is the reaction to an infection in which the body attacks its own organs and tissues. If not spotted and treated quickly, it can rapidly lead to organ failure and death.
The numbers are staggering – every year in the UK 250,000 people are affected by sepsis; 44,000 people die because of sepsis and 60,000 suffer permanent, life changing after-effects. In the West Midlands alone, nearly 22,000 people are affected each year, and almost 4,000 of those will die. That’s more than ten people every day.
Sepsis is indiscriminate, claiming young and old lives alike and killing more people than bowel, breast, prostate cancer and road accidents combined.
The UK Sepsis Trust (UKST) has a clear mission to save lives and improve outcomes for survivors of sepsis by instigating political change, educating healthcare professionals, raising public awareness, and providing support for those affected. We estimate, conservatively, that these interventions could save 14,000 lives per year, and save the NHS a staggering £300 million per annum.
The UK Sepsis Trust was founded in 2012 by world-leading sepsis expert, NHS consultant Dr Ron Daniels BEM and has a clear mission to save lives and improve outcomes for survivors of sepsis by instigating political change, educating healthcare professionals, raising public awareness, and providing support for those affected.
