Being at the heart of the community has always been part of the Busch Family philosophy and endeavouring to raise money to help good causes is very important to us all at Busch GVT Limited.
Charity Fund Raising
We select a different charity to support each year and this can be either a local or a national charity. Some of the charities we have raised money for over the years include Hope House Hospice, Cancer Research UK and MacMillan Cancer Support.
In 2014 we are raising funds for a cause right at the centre of Busch GVT Limited's local communities, this is the Children's Ward at the Leighton Hospital in Crewe.
Each year we organise a series of fund raising events and activities for our employees to participate in. These include coffee mornings, cake baking competitions, fitness challenges, golf days and even a 'Fun Fine' scheme - where our staff pay a nominal fine if they are late for a meeting or forget to turn off their mobile phones – all of which goes into our annual fund raising 'pot'.
Ironbridge Half Marathon
Playing a key part of our local community, we continue to support this important annual charity and fund raising event for Telford and Shropshire by sponsoring it for a 22nd year.
This year's half marathon took place on Sunday 6th April and as usual we are entering our own team of runners to raise money for our 2014 chosen charity.
Easter Egg Donation
Easter is always a joyful time in the year for children and families and with the weather having picked up over the last few weeks an Easter egg hunt in the garden will be a very popular activity over the Easter weekend.
Unfortunately some of the children in the Shropshire county have missed out on that fun because they were in hospital as inpatients due to illness.
In order to lift the spirits for these unfortunate kids being poorly and to give those a little bit of an Easter feel Busch GVT Limited had set up an initiative whereby all employees were invited to donate a chocolate Easter egg or bunny. We were absolutely delighted to say that the participation by our employees has been absolutely overwhelming! We collected a huge amount of chocolate eggs and bunnies and some members of staff even brought in up to 10 eggs each. We had never imagined we would get such great response and this shows how much people at Busch GVT Limited care about the local community.
