Swagelok Manchester has a long history of charitable giving and we aim to build upon this using the enthusiasm and generosity shown by all our associates. Giving back to our community is very important to us as a business and as people.
Our focus charities for 2018 are Mind, National Eczema Society and Prostate Cancer UK. We look forward to updating you on what we get up to raising money this year! If you would like us to support you and your cause, let us know by sending the details to email@example.com!
In 2017 a whopping £11,630 was donated to charities, with our three focus charities being Claire House, Alzheimer's Society and Macmillan.
Our associate group organized lots of charity events throughout the year including:
- Associates bought and made cupcakes to sell to other associates and local companies for the Alzheimer's society
- We sponsored a stand at the Claire House splash dash and a number of associates completed the race
- A variety of clothes from associates were donated to Claire house
- A selection of cakes, coffees and teas were enjoyed by all of our associates, family and close businesses as part of the Macmillan Coffee Morning
Associates also munched their way through our chocolate box and dressed to impress with our casual days, all of which helped to raise over £1200!
Operation Christmas Child
Our Swagelok Team have been working hard creating boxes and getting donations for Operation Christmas Child. If you are not familiar with the scheme, people are invited to fill a medium-sized shoebox with gifts that will then be sent to children in need anywhere around the globe. The gifts can include toys, clothing, school supplies and non-liquid personal hygiene items.
Headed by our Internal Account Advisors Allison Waywell, Laura Case, Lisa Bell and Sara Lewis we created sixteen Christmas boxes for the children.
If you would like to get involved visit Operation Christmas Child's Website for further information.
In 2014 we donated over £3,500 to 17 different charities. To enable us to have a greater impact with the money we raise, in 2015 our associates selected 3 charitable organisations for us to support
In 2015 year we donated over £1600 to each charity. Across 2016 we donated over £7295 to these organisations as well as charities supported by our customers and associates.
The money donated is raised by associates from our chocolate box, dress down days and raffles as well as generous contributions from our MD Jon Hall.
