• Exertis raises over £12,000 for local charities

        • Exertis’ employees have raised over £12,600 for a variety of local charities during July and August. The money has been raised through events organised by members of the Exertis UPGRADE trainee management programme and held by teams in Basingstoke, Harlow, Burnley and Elland.

          The Exertis ‘UPGRADE’ programme is an 18-month internal trainee management programme linked to a Level 3 apprenticeship in leadership and management. Aimed at employees wishing to develop their career into management roles, it follows a structured programme of development and covers a wide range of topics including, Finance, Project Management, Coaching and Performance Management amongst others.

          Paul Bryan, Exertis UK & I, Managing Director said, “this is a fantastic achievement by our employees who have organised events in their own time with local charities of their choice. From family fun days and casino nights to cake sales, raffles and auctions, I am immensely proud of our employees for their efforts for such worthy causes. As a business, we place great importance in giving back to the communities, promoting the culture that we want at Exertis with a genuine desire to make a difference.”

          The following donations have been made:

          Basingstoke: £2,487.30 for Naomi House & Jacksplace

          Burnley: £1,320 for Derian House Children’s Hospice and £1,700 for the Meningitis Research Foundation (MRF)

          Elland: £3,477.76 for Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice

          Harlow: £3,672.80 for Accuro

          The total money raised for Naomi House & Jacksplace has now reached £141,587.22 since Exertis started to support the charity back in 2010.

          Naomi House & Jacksplace are hospices for children and young adults with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions. MRF works to defeat meningitis, raising awareness of the impact that meningitis can have on people of all ages, and the importance of vaccination for preventing the disease. Derian House Children’s Hospice provides respite and end-of-life care for children and young people with life-limiting conditions, across Lancashire and South Cumbria. Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice supports children with life-shortening conditions – plus their families across West Yorkshire providing nursing care, days out, listening, respite care, therapy and a lot more. Accuro is a small, vibrant local charity providing a range of specialist services for children, young people and adults with a disability across West Essex.
