Airport Staff Raise £20,000 for Four Charities

Four charities have shared in £20,000 donated by staff at Belfast International Airport.

Cheques for £5,000 were presented to Alzheimer's Society, Mencap, Stepping Stones and the Northern Ireland Children's Hospice.

Belfast International Airport Staff Charity Committee said it hoped the donations would make a real difference to the four organisations.

In addition to the £5,000 cheque, Lisburn-based Stepping Stones also secured a six-week work placement opportunity for one of their students.

Belfast international Airport’s MD, Graham Keddie said: “In addition to the contributions made by staff and the airport in the monthly give-as-you-earn scheme, staff carried out a considerable number of voluntary initiatives in the community.

“The work that we do on the Staff Charity Committee is something that we know makes a positive impact. We’re delighted to be able to make these four £5,000 donations to four very worthy charities that play such an important part in the lives of thousands of people.

“Without these charities, and others like them, the challenges facing individuals and families would be all the greater. We’re making a small contribution towards the invaluable work they do, and hope it eases the pressure on their finances.

“We are immensely proud of being able to be part of a workforce that cares about others – our friends, neighbours, relatives and the wider community. We would encourage other companies to look at the benefits of doing what we do, and to embrace the idea of investing in organisations that give so much support and encouragement to people who value all the help they can get.”
