VolkerRail continues to show its support for local children’s hospice, Bluebell Wood after recently donating a further £714 to this worthy charity.
The company has been raising money for Bluebell Wood since the launch of its hazard spotter scheme in July 2012. The scheme encourages staff to proactively report all hazards and close calls to help raise awareness about the importance of health and safety reporting. Since its launch, the scheme has raised over £8,000 for the hospice.
Although now part of the wider VolkerWessels UK hazard spotter scheme, which sees £1 donated to MENCAP for each reported hazard or close call, VolkerRail has continued with its original policy of donating each time a hazard is ‘closed’.
This most recent donation also includes a contribution from staff who were awarded a cash prize during a local fishing contest and decided to donate the money to show their support.
Julie Hampson, corporate fundraiser for Bluebell Wood, said: “It was lovely to meet you and the team. Your support over the years is something we cannot thank you all enough for.”
Ten MAD dashers, from VolkerRail, have taken part in a 5km colour run for Bluebell Woods Children’s Hospice.
