St John Ambulance has received a £500 cash boost thanks to a Christmas donation CSR initiative by leading multi-discipline healthcare recruiter, ID Medical.
The Milton Keynes-based company invited its clients, candidates as well as the online social community to vote for one of five phenomenal employee selected charities via their website throughout the festive season. Those sector relevant charities included; Make a Wish Foundation, British Red Cross, Cancer Research UK, St John Ambulance and Florence Nightingale Foundation.
This benevolent initiative, designed and funded wholly by ID Medical, is a further extension of the company’s impacting CSR programme ‘Making the Difference’, to lend a helping hand to many charities and local communities.
Caryn Cooper, head of marketing at ID Medical said: “As an organisation we always look for ways in which we can support charities and good causes.
“Each year we face the inevitable conundrum of sending electronic or paper Christmas cards. In order to satisfy the preferences of our customers, we deliver both, so therefore ensured our in-house designed cards are made of sustainable and recyclable material.
“Our Christmas Donation complemented this with those who received one of our environmentally-friendly cards or advent calendars being directed to our website to take part in the vote. It’s great that the final decision was placed in the hands of our clients, candidates and general public to vote for one of the five charities closest to their hearts.
“Christmas is a time for giving and that’s what we wanted to do – give something back. I would like to congratulate St John Ambulance on winning the final vote on this occasion and thank everyone for taking part in ID Medical’s Christmas Donation and supporting our CSR initiative. Voting results can be found on our website www.id-medical.com/christmas-donation. ”
