Employees at PROjEN Ltd raise money for charity

PROjEN, the specialist engineering Project Management Company, based in Northwich Cheshire is proud to announce raising £133.16 after supporting Jeans for Genes day on Friday 2nd October.

Each member of staff in the office that day took part by donating £2 to wear their jeans to work. The money raised will go towards funding the care and support for children and families affected by genetic disorders, as well as research into the causes and cures of these conditions.

The aim of Jeans for Genes is to change the world for children living with genetic disorders. Research shows that genetic disorders affect 1 in 33 children born in the UK – the equivalent to one in every class of school children. Many of these disorders have no treatment available and more than half of all childhood deaths in the UK are linked to a genetic condition.

PROjEN’s Managing Director Martin Seabrook is delighted with the level of participation and enthusiasm that PROjEN’s employees demonstrate:

“It is fantastic to see the level of support and commitment everyone at PROjEN show when participating at fundraising events. On Jeans for Genes day all at PROjEN were committed to raising money at this fun but beneficial event.”

PROjEN raises over £500 for KidsCan

PROjEN has raised a total of £545 for the charity KidsCan following a successful health and safety initiative at one of the company’s major industrial projects.

No other charity researches into specifically children’s cancers which makes their work both unique and vital.

Kidscan was chosen as the charity to receive the donation from the health and safety initiative by PROjEN’s Mark Warrington and Steve Campbell following a conversation with Mark and friend Gary Billington who works at INEOS Chlor. In an effort to help raise funds for Kidscan, Gary, along with Tony Wilkinson and a number of friends, took part in the 100 mile fund raising bike ride “The Lancashire Loop Cycle Challenge” on Sunday 27th September. This has currently raised a total of £1,860 which is very close to the original target of £2,000

On all major projects PROjEN encourages a health and safety initiative at their various sites to promote the importance of excellent heath and safety practice. These initiatives are usually linked to a series of fund raising activities with partner contractors. This scheme was introduced by PROjEN to promote the safety culture for all PROjEN personnel and appointed sub contractors working on behalf of Greenergy on a major project in Plymouth. Fully endorsed by Greenergy’s Stephen McCaffrey, the health and safety scheme is a very important communication tool in educating all personnel on the issues surrounding safety in the work place.
