The Halesfield company’s employee communication forum team, consisting of staff who represent the views of the workforce, has chosen the Midlands Air Ambulance and Home Start of Telford as their chosen charities for this year.
Staff and management of the Shropshire Chamber of Commerce patron firm will take part in several sponsored events over the coming months, including a cycle challenge, barbeque, fashion show, Santa Run and a Wimbledon-themed strawberry and cream tea.
PCP marketing manager, Emma Ball, said: “We are delighted that our staff have chosen these very worthwhile county charities for the year and now look forward to raising valuable funds for both of them.
“Following a visit to the Midlands Air Ambulance base at RAF Cosford, it was interesting to hear from fundraisers just how much they really depend on the on-going support of the general public and businesses to carry out their vital work, so we are very happy to help in this small way.”
Maria Jones, Shropshire fundraiser for the MAA, commented: “It costs over £7 million pounds to keep our helicopters in the air each year and fantastic support from companies such as PCP is essential to its continued service, as we get no government or lottery funding, so we are very appreciative indeed.”
Home Start Telford & Wrekin is a charity providing help to vulnerable families with young children who are experiencing difficulty or crisis and fundraising manager Julia Allinson, added: “We are very grateful to PCP for helping us to raise the profile of the work we do locally by raising funds to support families in their time of need.”
