Reflection on Charity 2023
Throughout 2023, our Leicester office collaborated with Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People, while the Leeds office partnered with Candlelighters as part of social responsibility.
In February, we kicked off the year by raising awareness about the importance of taking time to communicate and listen. We also highlighted our Mental Health First Aiders and emphasised our support for employees to reach out to them when needed.
The momentum continued in June as we continued to organise collections for the Rainbow charity. July proved to be a bustling month for both offices, with individuals like Stewart Jackson, Steve Harrhy, and Adam Waite from the Leicester office participating in the Spartan Beast Race. Simultaneously, Andrew Bairstow and Jon Paryazani tackled the Total Warrior Course in support of Candlelighters Trust.
September began on a sweet note as Stewart Jackson participated in a charity bake sale. During the same month, we had a successful volunteer day at Rainbows Hospice for Children's donations room, where we were warmly welcomed.
To conclude the year, Lewis Gardner fearlessly undertook a charity fire walk for Leicester Hospital alongside Unipart employees, raising over £1,200 in memory of his father who passed away the previous year.
The ATA team had an exceptional year of charitable contributions. The Leicester office raised £1903.36 for Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People, while the Leeds team raised £185 for Candlelighters. Additionally, ATA engaged in various other meaningful activities, including:
Supporting mental health awareness days.
Participating in the Samaritans walking marathon in July.
Hosting STEM open days in schools.
Partnering with clients to celebrate women in engineering.
Organising a charity golf match.
Continuing our Corporate Social Responsibility strategy in 2024
Christian Anderson, Director at ATA said “We’re very much looking forward to supporting our 2 chosen charities again this year. They both do an unbelievable job in their local communities and are always so grateful of our support. We’ve got lots of activities in the pipeline, which will be announcing very soon. Can’t wait to get going.”
