• Entanet announces new CSR committee and 2018/19 nominated charities

        • Entanet has outlined its commitment to the wider community through a new Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) committee of 13 company volunteers.
           
          The purpose of the committee is to develop, run and coordinate the CSR activities of Entanet throughout the year, focusing on four main areas or charitable giving and fundraising, volunteering, environmental impact, and diversity and inclusion. 

          The committee’s first task was to create a shortlist of good causes and arrange a staff vote to decide Entanet’s national and local nominated charities for 2018/19. Entanet is has announced that as a result of this vote its national nominated charity will be Meningitis Now and its local charity will be Midlands Air Ambulance Charity.

          Elsa Chen, CEO of Entanet said, “Entanet is already well known for its charitable activities and our staff are passionate about making a positive difference in the community. The introduction of the new CSR committee provides an even stronger focus and direction for these activities.”
           
          Steven Wood, Chair of Entanet’s CSR Committee said, “we’re really excited about the announcement of Entanet’s nominated charities and we’re looking forward to working with colleagues on a range of activities to support these great causes as well as a range of other important CSR initiatives.”

          For over 30 years Meningitis Now has been involved in the development and introduction of meningitis vaccines, saved lives through awareness and helped people rebuild their lives after meningitis with free specialised support.
           
          Steve Dayman, Executive Founder of Meningitis Now said, “we’re delighted that Entanet has chosen to support us. As a charity that receives no government funding, every penny Entanet raises will help us fight this devastating disease on all fronts, from funding pioneering preventative research, raising awareness and supporting people affected.”
           
          Midlands Air Ambulance Charity is responsible for funding and operating three air ambulances serving the communities of six counties: Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Worcestershire and the West Midlands. This constitutes the largest air ambulance operating region in the UK.
           
          Jon Cottrell, Corporate Partnership Development Executive for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity added, “we’re so thankful to Entanet staff for choosing us to be their local charity. Having no central government or lottery funding means that we are completely dependent on donations from the general public and Midlands-based businesses such as Entanet. Each Midlands Air Ambulance Charity mission costs on average £2500, so we need constant backing and fundraising initiatives to keep our helicopters in the air and saving lives on a daily basis."
