AF Support Aids Barnardo's

Posted on 08 January 2008 |

Since March 2007 AF International, specialist suppliers of ICT cleaning products, has supported the well known children's charity Barnardo's through both a variety of staff fundraising activities and the sale of branded AF products.

From every product sold within the UK £0.02 has been donated directly to Barnardo's and this will continue into 2008. Clementine Delahey, fundraiser for Barnardo's, comments; "AF International have been fantastically generous in raising £10,000 in just nine months. We are so grateful to the staff at AF for their endeavours and to the customers that purchase AF products. Their support will help improve the lives of countless children, particularly those in the Midlands where AF are located".

Within AF, staff have been eager to help support the charity initiative. Earlier in 2007 Marketing Manager Karen Harrison undertook a daring sky dive, while in 2008 UKM Sales anager Chris Bratt will run the world-famous Flora London Marathon - his fourth marathon in as many years! Less adventurous members of staff have also generously contributed, most recently through donating Christmas hamper items. These will be distributed among local families within Barnardo's Stepping Forward service who have already benefited from AF-donated IT equipment.

Karen Harrison comments; "As part of our corporate social responsibility programme we wanted to support a really worthy cause. We're delighted that our staff have really taken this charity drive to their hearts and, although I may not be repeating my sky dive, I am certainly looking forward to future experiences and supporting Chris through his marathon training". Clementine Delahey adds; "We're overjoyed with the long term commitment made by AF, they all show such dedication when it comes to raising funds for Barnardo's".
