Last year Air Charter Service and its employees raised a record amount of just over £59,000 for their chosen charities across a variety of fund-raising activities.
The sum was raised through events, including a company ten-pin bowling competition, a summer garden party, Dragon Boat Race along the Thames, a charity quiz night, and at the Christmas party.
Group company secretary and head of the Charity Committee, Tina Leach, commented: “We are delighted to be able to donate such a large amount to our chosen charities this year. Along with various personal efforts for other individually chosen charities, we currently support four main charities that were voted for by our employees. These are The Dysart School, Momentum, Macmillan Cancer Support and Save the Children. Any money raised by our employees for these four causes is matched by ACS.”
Leach continued: “We also have an ongoing, long-term project that benefits from ACS’s fundraising, which is HEAL. Over the past six years ACS’s donations have paid for a new IT classroom and library for the HEAL orphanage and school in Andhra Pradesh, India.”
