Amey Defence team donate a*award prize to SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity

We’re always keen to recognise our employees when they live the Amey values of putting people first, delivering great service and creating better solutions and our teams in our Regional Prime South East (RPSE) contract certainly demonstrated this when they donated their £250 prize money from Amey’s a*star awards to SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity.

The annual awards event recognises the efforts of those who really make a difference to our business and our RPSE team won the health and safety category by achieving more than two years without a Lost Time Incident (LTI) – that’s more than seven million hours of safe working! After wide consideration, our teams decided to generously donate their winnings to our corporate charity partner, SSAFA.

John Riley, Operations Director (RPSE) said “It was an easy and popular decision to donate the prize money to our chosen charity, SSAFA.  We all admire the work they do and are very happy to support it.  We are looking forward to providing further support when we run our Big Brew events next month.”

John handed the cheque to Annastasia Williams, SSAFA Corporate Partnerships Officer, at our office in Middle Wallop, Hampshire who was absolutely delighted and said “It was fantastic to meet both John Riley and Richard Castell, Amey’s Operational Relationship Manager, at the Army Aviation Centre on Wednesday. After their team won £250 for their excellent health and safety record at the company’s ‘Star Awards’, they decided to kindly donate this prize to SSAFA. This donation comes as part of our successful corporate partnership with Amey and it will help to fund our vital mentoring service, which supports wounded, injured and sick Forces leavers as they settle back into civilian life.

This donation now brings Amey’s fundraising for SSAFA to just over £210,000 which has been raised over the last 4½ years by Amey’s staff and supply chain partners who have taken part in events and challenges to help us reach our target of raising £250,000 by the end of 2019.
