Our charitySince 1978 (and the start our Charitable Trust) Europa Worldwide Group has raised over half a million pounds for good causes and in 2016 we donated £14,500 for more than 30 UK charities.
Over the course of the year, individuals and groups have taken part in gruelling, fun and inspirational challenges to raise the impressive total.
Events included our IT Director, Richard Litchfield, who completed his first ever full marathon in Nottingham, raising over £2,000 and Europa Road Manchester branch manager Paul Martin, who took on the Great North Swim at Lake Windermere, raising £700, both for Cancer Research. National European Forwarding Manager, Simon Hucks, also raised £1,000 by taking part in a memory walk in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society
Latest on our Darent Valley Hospital Project
We’re thrilled to have unveiled a brand-new playground at a children’s hospital ward close to our headquarters in Dartford.
A donation of £16,000 was used to purchase new equipment for the playground of Willow Ward at Darent Valley Hospital. Children admitted to the ward had not been able to play outside since last summer when the hospital’s old climbing frame was deemed unsafe and cordoned off.
We’re very proud that every year Europa’ staff, suppliers and friends support a number of community initiatives and good causes important to the team.
Fundraising brings people together and our initiatives over the years is a great way of supporting our staff while also helping charities close to our hearts.
