James Fisher colleagues raise charity funds through lockdown

Fisher Offshore

The Catalyst Vineyard Church and its foodbank storehouse in Inverurie supplies almost 100 families over the festive period with Christmas hampers and movie packs, and this year, James Fisher Offshore (JFO) jumped in to help with packing and distribution to local families in need.  

The Christmas hampers include an ‘oven ready ingredient pack’ for a Christmas meal, a child’s gift, sweets and a selection of treats. The movie packs include hot chocolate, sweets and treats so the families can enjoy quality time together in front of a film.  

The JFO team also collected and donated 32 new and pre-loved Christmas jumpers for the families in need at the beginning of December.  

EDS HV Group

EDS HV raised £200 for Macmillan Cancer Support after holding a fun ‘Games Night In’ virtual quiz which saw 18 members of the team testing their wits and general knowledge. The EDS HV team also organised a charity ‘Bake Off’ which attracted 18 entries. The winner, Lee Glendening, received a personalised apron and a generous donation to his charity of choice, Daft as a Brush, which provides hospital transport for people undergoing cancer treatment. 

“We are so pleased with how everyone has engaged with the Bake Off and the Quiz Nights,’ says Seana Downes, head of business services at EDS  ‘The interaction and friendly competitiveness has been brilliant, and has brought some much needed light relief at the same time as helping to raise vital funds for charitable causes.’ 

Martek Marine

The Martek team has been raising funds and buying food, toiletries, baby products, sanitary items, and most importantly (it is Christmas after all) advent calendars for the Barnsley Food Bank at Wombwell. The goodies were sorted and allocated to care packages for families struggling to afford essentials.

‘We had great fun picking out toys as gifts for the children,’ says Martek sales manager Sarah Rouse. ‘It was quite overwhelming to see the number of people at Martek that agreed to help and donate. I’m sure it put a smile on everyone’s faces to see what we achieved despite all of our own personal struggles that we faced this year. 

James Fisher group

Staff from across the James Fisher group took part in virtual London marathon in October to raise funds for various charities. Robin Stopford, head of corporate development and managing director of digital and data services, was a star runner, raising £6,250 for Great Ormond Street Hospital.
