New Delivery Charges from 1st February 2023

After a period of quite severe inflationary pressure where we have absorbed supplier price increases as far as possible, to ensure we can maintain our service levels we have made the decision to introduce a charging mechanism that more accurately reflects the actual costs incurred in making a lorry delivery to our customers.
As many of you will be aware, these are the first changes to our delivery charges since Madingley Mulch began trading in 1999!
The following changes will be made from 1st February: Our minimum order value eligible for delivery will increase from £40 to £50 Delivery charges will now be applied to all orders to reflect the combined cost of distance travelled and space taken up on the lorry.
Please see our delivery page for more information about the new charges.

Lucky Dip Aids Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust

We had a lucky dip in aid of Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust at the Gransden Show in Great Gransden, near Cambridge. This raised a superb £658, so many thanks to all those who had a go.

As some of you know, we have been raising money for this charity to thank Addenbrooke’s for saving the life of our CEO Steve Lunn’s daughter Hannah, who is now doing really well and was at the Show.

The lucky dip (pictured above) was on the Madingley Mulch and Madmix stand at the show, which featured displays of our landscaping supplies. Prizes included seeds, torches, vouchers, tape measures and many other items.

Hannah (pictured above with Steve) was diagnosed with a severe case of leukaemia in September last year and also suffered a stroke, but is now in remission, only needing bone marrow checks every 3 months. She enjoyed visiting the Show and supporting the fundraising.

The lucky dip has brought Steve’s fundraising total so far to more than £7,000 for the trust. A lot of the money was raised by sponsorship for painting his toenails claret and blue – the colours of the team he supports, West Ham. The aim is to raise a total of £28,200, and we are now more than 25% of the way there! Click here to find out more about Steve’s fundraising
