2018 Charity of the Year at SVM

Posted on

SVMWe are delighted to announce that SVM have made us their 2018 Charity of the Year.

For the past three years, SVM Consulting Engineers have appointed a ‘champion charity’ that they support throughout the year through a variety of activities. As 2017 comes to a close SVM have turned their attention to us as their 2018 charity of the year!

John McDonald, the Family Holiday Association’s Chief Executive says, “We help families in desperate need of respite: families knocked sideways by the toughest of circumstances. Evidence shows that a short, simple break in a caravan at the British seaside or day trip can really make a difference and help a family cope with whatever the future throws at them. We are thrilled that this new partnership with SVM will help more families for whom a holiday is a lifeline – giving them relief from daily struggles, a chance to smile together and create precious memories to last them a lifetime. What a gift to give!

Over the past three years SVM have raised hundreds of pounds for their ‘champion charities’. And as each year comes to a close, they are proud to have been helping some of the country’s hard-working charities to make a difference to people’s lives.

Mark Sansom, Director at SVM says, “The feeling of walking in bare feet on the sand has to be one of life’s simplest pleasures; a moment of escapism.  To think that so many children whose daily lives are filled with unimaginable pressures have never experienced this is indescribable.  We hope our collaboration with the Family Holiday Association will raise much-needed funds and create lasting memories for families less fortunate than our own.  We take our Corporate Social Responsibility seriously – rather than simply writing a cheque we want to create opportunities to inspire our staff, clients and peers to support this fantastic charity over the coming year.”

We’re looking forward to working with SVM over the coming year, because a little sunshine goes a long way…
