Spotlight on Pride
Meet the organisations responsible helping to ensure our unsung heroes are recognised
HEADQUARTERED in Little Chalfont since 2004, multinational business GE Healthcare is sponsoring the 999 Service Personnel Award to help recognise and celebrate the tremendous contribution of our local emergency services.
Kate Lewis of GE Healthcare, commented: “We are delighted to be able to help tell the stories of some of the community’s true heroes. These are the people who work to keep us safe and well on a daily basis. Their actions and dedication should be an inspiration to us all.”
The company’s Grove Centre site, on White Lion Road, Amersham, houses its very own emergency vehicle manned by a crew of volunteer firefighters. Several of these same employees are also on standby for the Chesham and Amersham fire services. Buckinghamshire is home to many of the 1,000 GE Healthcare staff who work across three local sites. Employees regularly participate in local volunteer days and hold events throughout the year, including a family fun day and fireworks night to raise money for their three selected charities; The PACE Centre, The Chiltern MS Centre and The Hospice of St Francis. Worldwide, GE employees devote over a million hours to volunteering every year.
