Europlaz staff raised £565 for Essex and Herts Air Ambulance at the annual staff BBQ.
Each year, in late July, Europlaz holds a Summer BBQ with limitless drinks and food in order to thank staff for their hard work and provide a fun occasion for all to get together and enjoy.
This year there was an additional focus; at the BBQ a raffle was held in aid of the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance, a charity selected by staff as company charity of the year. The raffle was a huge success with staff raising £282.50 in ticket sales. Europlaz then matched this amount so the total donation to the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance was £565.
The location of the Europlaz offices in the heart of Southminster, Essex means that many of our staff have stories of themselves, friends or family members being supported by the Essex Air Ambulance in an emergency so it was an obvious choice for the charity of the year.
Europlaz has been operating in Southminster for over 40 years and employs more than 90 staff from the local an surrounding areas. Many more charity events are being planned by the charity committee for later in the year.
The BBQ was provided by Andy from At Your Beck & Call Catering.
