Equiom employees donate more than £7,000 to local causes

Thursday 21 April 2016

Equiom has donated £7,750 to several lsle of Man causes from funds raised by employee ‘dress down’ days during the 2014-2015 financial year.

Equiom’s Isle of Man Staff Charity Committee invited employees based at the company’s Isle of Man office to wear casual clothes on Fridays in return for a fixed monthly donation to a charitable fund. The fund was split between charities nominated and voted for by the staff at the beginning of the financial year.

The chosen headline charities, Parkinsons Disease Society Isle of Man and Finley’s Tracks, each received £2,000. Five additional charities – Autism Initiatives Isle of Man, Breathe Easy Isle of Man Support Group, Naseem's Manx Brain Tumour Charity, Manx Miracles and Manx Mencap – each received £750 each.

Hannah Francis, Staff Charity Committee Chair, commented:

‘I am thrilled to be able to support so many local causes. On behalf of the Staff Charity Committee I would like to thank all the Equiom Isle of Man dress down day participants. Having spoken with many of the charities I know that our donations really are appreciated and will make a significant difference locally’.
