Ashley Mitich-Holmes is raising money for Heathrow Community Trust
My name is Ashley; I work in the Recruitment team at British Airways.
Myself and my colleagues from the British Airways Recruitment team are extremely proud to be supporting the Heathrow Community Trust in this years' Heathrow Midnight Marathon on the 1st of October.
Heathrow Community Trust (HCT) is an independent grant-making trust providing much-needed funding to communities around Heathrow airport since 1996. In the last 3 years, HCT has awarded over £1.5m in grants to community groups. HCT is a small charity driven to use their grant making to support impactful community groups, committed to their vision of happy, healthy local communities where everyone has the opportunity to live a rewarding and fulfilled life, and the value of giving something back to your community is recognised. HCT’s funding comes from donations from Heathrow Airport Limited and other Team Heathrow companies, noise fines, and fundraising activities like the Midnight Marathon. More info here: https://www.heathrowcommunitytrust.org/
One example of a project HCT has funded via the Projects for Young People grant stream is The east to west Trust, awarded a grant for their Emerge project, which supports young people admitted to A&E departments due to self-harm injury or attempted suicide. The grant supported provision at St Peter’s Hospital in Chertsey, where the Trust were able to have volunteers working three nights a week supporting 154 young people aged 10-25 who were in a mental health crisis across 2 years. The Trust also expanded its community provision to be able to support young people once they left the hospital.
Myself and my team share in the vision of the Heathrow Community Trust, and we would be extremely grateful for your support through donation towards a great cause which has made great strides in driving sustainability initiatives for its community.
