Helistrat Raise Money and Spend Time for 2018 Charities
Leading environmental consultancy and contract manager, Helistrat have spent over 100 hours volunteering for charity while raising £5,000 in the process.
The Helistrat Team have been hard at work over the last 12 months ensuring they give back to the community as well as causes close to their hearts. Throughout the year, our teams took on enduring 24 hour Thunder Runs, Final Straw beach cleans in the peak of summer and serving warm meals to the less fortunate with the Real Junk Food Project.
Internal fundraising days saw us supporting the World Cup, getting into the spirit of Halloween and spreading some festive cheer. Together, we raised over £5,000 for our nominated charities with special support from our CEO, who alone raised over £1,000 with his spray tan challenge.
Commenting on this support, Harvey Laud, CEO at Helistrat said:
“It’s fantastic to see everyone get behind our fundraising activities to raise money for these charities and as a business, we are privileged to be in a position to support our local community by offering each member of our team a day off to volunteer. It is always encouraging to see colleagues going out and giving their time to support local charities and causes”
