Children In Need - helping the community

Eriez Europe Supports Children In Need Charity
 

Eriez Europe has once again taken part in the UK-wide fundraising activities for the BBC Children In Need Appeal, selling raffle tickets, freshly made bacon butties and cakes as well as having a dress-down day for the employees. Led by Eriez’ Social and Charity Events Committee, all employees were able to partake in the activities, with the cooked on the premises delicious bacon butties proving a firm favourite. In total over £300 was raised by employees for Children In Need at Eriez’ manufacturing facility in Caerphilly, South Wales.








Eriez Men Donate their Top Lips to Charity

Climbing Mountains for Charity
 

At 6:15am we all stood at the top of Wales. We all felt amazing. The two hours climb had been worth it as the views were spectacular. We were above the clouds and had felt the sun rise on our backs as we climbed. Unbeknown to us, snow had fallen on Snowdon the night before and it was cold. Thankfully, the snow had disappeared, although the ground untouched by the rising sun was coated in a thick frost.








Eriez Climb Welsh 3 Peaks for Charity


Four Eriez teams recently took part in the annual Ty Hafan Taff Trail Cycle Challenge and raised £3266.70 for the Welsh Children’s Hospice Charity. Two of the teams cycled 55 miles from Brecon in Mid Wales, down alongside the River Taff, across several mountains and down to the coast at Cardiff Bay. The other two teams joined the Taff Trail at the half way point in Merthyr and cycled the remaining 28 miles.

Eriez Superheroes for Ty Hafan


Some of the world’s best known Superheroes put in an appearance at Eriez Magnetics Europe Ltd, in aid of Tŷ Hafan, the Children’s Hospice in Wales. The gauntlet was thrown down to Eriez Directors Paul Fears and John Curwen to appear as Superheroes, in order to raise funds for Tŷ Hafan. The Directors agreed, provided that Eriez employees raise £500 in sponsorship within one week. The final amount raised was £800.

Alexandra Helps Build Lives


Last year, Eriez Europe helped Alexandra Phillips fulfil a life-changing expedition to Kenya through the donation made towards her trip. Alexandra, daughter of Jayne Jamieson, Finance Director of Eriez Europe, travelled to Ulamba in Kenya where she dedicated her time to the children of the local community and completed the mammoth task of building an early development centre.









Eriez Gives to Local Community


In spirit of the festive season, Eriez Europe wanted to help those in the local community have a better Christmas by donating gift boxes filled with food, toiletries and confectionery.
