As part of the Keycare culture we pride ourselves in many areas, but one area that is personal to the staff of Keycare is being able to share our financial success with those who are less fortunate than ourselves.
Keycare has supported many charities over the past 35 years and will continue to do so into the future.
Our charity of the year for 2012 is The Yorkshire Air Ambulance
The Yorkshire Air Ambulance is an independent charity providing a life saving rapid response emergency service to 5 million people across Yorkshire. They fly seven days a week, 365 days a year, covering a vast landscape that not only includes major cities and motor ways, but also rural and isolated locations.
To keep providing this life saving service the charity needs to raise £7200 per day to keep both of Yorkshire's Air Ambulances maintained and in the air. The generosity that they receive is the life blood of the charity and with out this generosity, they would not be able to provide the service that they are so proud of.
We at Keycare are eager to help this charity as it is local to everyone in the company and we just never know when we might need their services.
To help the Yorkshire Air Ambulance to continue their great work and find out about the many and varied ways in which you can help please visit their website www.yorkshireairambulance.org.uk
Without your help YAA would not be able to continue the great work they do in saving so many lives.
We look at many ways in which we can raise vital funds for our charity partners and indeed charities that are close to our people's hearts. All finders of our key fobs receive a £10 reward. Sometimes the finders are quite happy for the rewards to be given to charity. As such we give the opportunity to the team members in Keycare to decide which charity they would like the donations to go to in any one particular month. This is a well established and well liked approach as it gives everyone in the team a sense of achievement when we send cheques for hundreds of pounds to a cause close to their hearts.
There is always an excuse for a raffle as well as individuals doing their own charity and sponsored events. Keycare as a company are always eager to support any of our teams or individuals who are willing to challenge themselves and raise funds for their chosen charities, and we are eager to highlight their achievements and consider all requests for donations.
Everyone at Keycare hopes the funds raised throughout the year will make a real difference in someone's life.
