Building materials distributor Travis Perkins has raised more than £38,000 for the Northampton and Warwickshire Air Ambulance Service – thanks to the hard work and dedication of fundraising by colleagues in the IT department, the company says.
The 500-strong Travis Perkins plc IT team raised the funds, which will help service the lifesaving missions that are carried out by the charity, through a series of challenges and events. This included a dragon boat race and summer ball.
As part of the charitable work, Travis Perkins also took part in Air Ambulance Week, which included setting up a clothes bank and organising a bake off. Travis Perkins’ IT department also held a Christmas cake sale, which raised £4,000 in only an hour, the company says.
The IT team will continue to support the Northampton and Warwickshire Air Ambulance Service throughout 2017 with activities and events designed to raise even more funds, Travis Perkins says.www.travisperkinsplc.co.uk
