We’re closing the decade with our latest round of charity donations to local community groups. A key element of our community engagement programme, the charity donations are designed to make a positive contribution to the areas around our four state-of-the-art technical centres in Wiltshire, Staffordshire, Nottinghamshire and Scotland, along with our head office in Holmes Chapel, Cheshire.
Nominated by employees, one winner from each site was chosen at random, with a rugby team, a wellbeing hub, a young lady who has been left paraplegic as a result of a spinal cord injury, a football club and a bowling club each receiving a £500 contribution:
- Trowbridge Under 14 rugby team, Wiltshire – wet weather waterproofs will be purchased with the donation
- Olivia Langley, Nottinghamshire – rehabilitation and mobility equipment: https://www.gofundme.com/f/livs-recovery-fund
- Yett Farm Football Club, Scotland – kit and equipment for this community club
- Childs Ercall bowling club, Staffordshire – running costs for this local club
- Kelsall Wellbeing Hub, Cheshire – annexe to the new village surgery to support the physical and mental wellbeing of all residents particularly the elderly and those less able to access services outside of the village
“We are delighted to be able to support the local good causes which are dear to the hearts of our employees as well as raising funds for Debra, our charity of the year. Our aim was to raise £10,000 for the skin charity this year and we’ve met this target with the help of our suppliers, training partners and employees.” explained Theo Kortland, Managing Director of Smart Fleet Solutions. “This is our second round of charity donations for our local neighbourhoods this year and we have been overwhelmed by the positive reaction to this initiative. As we continue to grow our workforce, we are looking forward to being able to reach out to our wider community to offer support throughout the next decade.”
