Wisbech firm donates cash to two charities after changing the way it supports good causes
Anglia Components has streamlined its charitable activities to give focus on two chosen local charities each year.
The Wisbech based electronic component distributor’s new charity programme ensures the company’s fundraising activities are better targeted to charities chosen by Anglia employees.
Steve Rawlins, CEO said: “It’s always been important for Anglia to give something back to the local community and we have donated to various charities throughout the years. However, our programme to date has been fairly ad hoc with many requests from various charities and this has led us to rethink and streamline our charity programme. It makes much more sense to have nominated charities each year to which we can dedicate all our fundraising endeavours.”
The first appointed beneficiaries of the new Anglia components charity scheme were Alzheimer’s and Alan Hudson Day Treatment Centre, based in Wisbech with each charity receiving nearly £4,000 raised by staff through charitable events such as a Christmas party raffle.
