Firm pulls out stops to support charity
FACILITIES management firm Sodexo at Astra Zeneca had a lot of fun raising £1,415 for Seashell Trust.
Seashell Trust cares for and works with profoundly disabled young people to help them achieve their potential and lead full and active lives.
Some of the students went along to two fun days held at Astra Zeneca’s Alderley Edge and Macclesfield sites and joined in a sponsored relay row of the English Channel on a rowing machine another all the other attractions.
Jodie Aikenhead, Sodexo customer service manager at Alderley Park, said: “This year we have completed the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge and held fetes to raise money for the charity. Both events were huge successes and raised £1,415 for Seashell Trust, a fantastic charity we have worked closely with over the last few years and look forward to supporting the great work that they do in future.”
Sodexo employs a graduate from the charity in supported role after a number of successful work experience placements for other Seashell students.
Wendy Bray, from Seashell Trust, said: “We are so grateful to all the staff at Sodexo and Astra Zeneca for so generously fundraising for us. It was a fantastic event and our stu- dents were very proud to be part of the team that rowed the Channel in a day.”
