The Wessex Autistic Society is pleased to announce CSE Citation Centre, located at Hurn, is a finalist for the “Business Charity Supporter of the Year” Award in recognition of their efforts throughout their partnership with The Wessex Autistic Society – now entering its third year.
Having cycled 350 miles, completed hours of volunteering and managed fundraising events raising over £10,000 all in aid of local charity, it is time for the energetic employees at CSE Citation Centre to sit back and relax for a night as they are hosted at the Wessex Charity Awards 2012.
Gemma Saunders, Corporate Partnership Officer at The Wessex Autistic Society comments; “The partnership with CSE has been an incredibly positive one for everyone involved. The company’s staff has really embraced the opportunity to raise funds for a local charity and it is a truly inspiring benchmark for what a business and charity can do together. CSE Citation Centre’s fundraising efforts, over the past 3 years, amount to over £30,000. These vital funds have been used to buy essential resources and equipment for our students at Portfield School: nominating them for the award is the least we can do to say thank you.”
A jet maintenance facility located in Hurn, CSE Citation Centre, a BBA Aviation PLC company, has put so much effort into their fundraising over the past three years that the amounts raised have exceeded everyone’s expectations.
Philip Lammiman, Managing Director for CSE Citation Centre comments, “We are very pleased to be able to contribute to this very worthwhile cause in a way that enhances the children’s support and learning facilities. I am proud of my staff’s dedication and enthusiasm in the fundraising activities they have successfully achieved. We hope this relationship can go from strength to strength and that with the support of the Charity we can keep coming up with new and exciting ways to raise even more money.”
