Deloitte Leeds win ‘Outstanding Corporate Support’ award
The Deloitte Leeds office won an award at the Yorkshire Air Ambulance annual recognition awards held at The Principal York Hotel on 19 October.
The accolade was for ‘Outstanding Corporate Support’ in 2016-2017. As an office they raised £30,000 for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance as part of a two-year partnership.
The money was collected through a range of fundraising activities and events. £8,000 came from Deloitte employees donating an hour’s salary, while a raffle at the firm’s annual office ball produced nearly £3,000 and a Quiz night raised £2,500.
Kerry Garner, regional fundraising manager for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, said: "It has been a pleasure working with the Deloitte team in Leeds over the past two years, and we are hugely grateful for their amazing fundraising efforts.”
Helen Kaye, partner and responsible business lead at Deloitte in Yorkshire, added: “We are over the moon to have won an outstanding corporate support award. Organising so many events has been extremely rewarding for us. Everyone knows about the fantastic, life-saving work of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, but without the fundraising efforts of individuals and organisations it wouldn’t be able to keep its helicopters in the air.”
