VEKA charity

The Encephalitis Society Gets VEKA’s Support For 2015

April 10, 2015

The VEKA UK Group has named the Encephalitis Society as its nominated charity for 2015, announcing a series of events that will take place over the course of the year to raise funds for the support and research organisation.

Gabriela Hammond, Head of Human Resources at The VEKA UK Group commented: “This is a cause that’s close to our hearts and, as such, The VEKA UK Group is dedicating a full year’s support to the society as opposed to the normal six-months.

“Fundraising got off to a flying start in January, with many staff members staying ‘dry’ for the month in return for sponsorship money! March’s Network VEKA AGM saw members donate over £700 to use the ’70s-themed props, supplied for the evening’s entertainment – an amazingly generous contribution to make in just one day.

“Susan Lunney, the Network VEKA Office Manager and Karen Galawan, PA to our Sales and Marketing Director teamed up to help us make the most of Easter’s fundraising opportunities. They baked and decorated an amazing batch of cupcakes that sold out in a flash at our Burnley HQ.

“We’ve been selling various goodies – from pin badges and wrist bands to cook books and even cuddly toys – and, with such a diligent workforce, we’re finding cones of sweeties prove an ever-popular energy-boosting treat!”

If you’d like to keep up with The VEKA UK Group’s fundraising activities, news is regularly posted on both its website and social media accounts. Gabriela continues: “Besides the events and activities we’re hosting within the company, there’s lots more planned that we’re welcoming customers and suppliers to get involved with too.

“For the more active among us, there are charity runs, sponsored bike rides and the annual VEKA golf day to look forward to. And, for those who enjoy their sport more from the comfort of an armchair, the Euro football sweepstake always proves a popular money-spinner!

“You can follow all our progress online – no doubt there’ll be many entertaining and embarrassing pictures shared on our Facebook and Twitter accounts and we regularly update the news pages on www.vekauk.com too. If you or your company would like to help or sponsor us in supporting what is a really good cause, we’d love to hear from you.”
