Amey is one of the largest corporate supporters of SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity, and in 2015 committed to raising £250,000 over five years of the partnership to help SSAFA provide lifelong support for our Armed Forces and their families. Our partnership and is built on our long-standing support for military and ex-military service men and women and, through the enthusiasm of our employees taking part in fundraising activities and initiatives, we’ve already raised more than £200,000 for the charity.
Last month we were delighted to present a cheque to SSAFA for £2,332.66, provided through our excellent partnership with Symphony Group, who supply the kitchen upgrades for Service Family Accommodation throughout the UK.
James Grant, Head of Corporate Fundraising & Events at SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity said of the donation: “We are thrilled that, once again, Symphony Kitchens has chosen to make a donation to SSAFA in support of our work with the Armed Forces community. This comes as part of our successful corporate partnership with Amey. Money raised via this collaboration funds our vital mentoring service, which supports wounded, injured and sick Forces leavers as they settle back into civilian life. Donations such as these are essential, as they allow us to continue supporting the military community, whenever they need it.”
Tim Redfern, Amey’s Director of Defence added “The commitment shown by our staff and supply chain partners to fundraise in support of SSAFA is truly inspiring. This year will see us undertake further activities in support of Service families, which include SSAFA’s annual Big Brew Up and a number of initiatives to tie in with Armed Forces Day.”
