Here at Admiral Jet we are committed to giving back to the local and wider community and historically we have given a yearly donation to two charities. Last August we introduced a new initiative to make monthly donations for every booking that was made. We believe it is important that the team are involved so each month a team member chose a charity which is in line with what is important to them.
The new scheme was introduced in August 2021 and we are pleased to announce that so far we have donated £8050 to the following charities:
- Diabetes UK
- The Dogs Trust
- A local foodbank.
- Cats in Crisis
- Macmillan Cancer Support
- Cancer Research UK
- Action for Children
- British Red Cross
- Sepsis UK Ltd
- Rising Sun Domestic Violence & Abuse Service
- Hypo Hounds
- The Children’s Society
Here are what some of the team have to say about our charitable donation scheme:
“I think the scheme is absolutely brilliant. It’s such a nice thing to do, to know that we are helping the chosen charity each month and really giving something back. My chosen charities have been The Dogs Trust because I am a big doggie fan and also Rising Sum Domestic Violence & Abuse Service because of recent incidents in the area.”
“I think it is great that the company have given to a variety of charities this year. I chose a local foodbank as they do great work supporting families in the local community and Hypo Hounds who train dogs to detect and alert to the dangerous changes their Type 1 Diabetic owner’s blood sugars. I look forward to choosing my charities to support this year and hopefully we can raise even more for these well deserving causes.”
“We’ve been given this wonderful opportunity to support local or national charities through our charitable scheme. When it was my turn to choose it didn’t take me long to decide. Cats in Crisis operate out of volunteer’s homes which allows the cats to socialise in a home environment while waiting for adoption. Being a Cat lover in the community, I’ve seen the work they do and it’s nothing short of incredible”
“I think it’s a great scheme and how a little donation can certainly add up quickly. It’s great that we can give back and it’s an achievement I am proud to be involved in. The charities were close to my heart.”
“I think to be able to give back to those who really need it is fantastic, it really can change the fortunes of those in need. I chose my charity because I wanted to help children who aren’t so fortunate to have the help and start in life they need and should have. I feel it’s important they get the help they need as they are our future.”
We have taken a look at the initiative for the upcoming year and due to the success we shall we be keeping the monthly charity contributions. Everyone in the team will continue to be able to choose a charity but once a QTR we will be asking our clients who they would like our monthly charity to be.
Keep an eye out on our socials where we will be making regular updates on our charitable donation scheme.
We look forward to seeing how much Admiral Jet can raise this year for more well deserved charities.
