Main aim of the charity
Providing 'home comforts' usually taken for granted by people like ourselves, normal everyday life expectations
How the employee got involved and why
After being brought up in Zambia as a child, after 35 years when I returned, I was devastated by the poverty of the people, and especially how deprived the children were - not only not having a proper roof over their heads and obvious malnutrition, but the lack of clothing, uniforms for school (if they are lucky enough to go to school). I took it upon myself to choose two schools to help with items donated from England.
What work does the employee do for charity?
I donate items collected in the UK which includes: clothing; sports clothing and equipment; my wife and I visit once or twice a year, and I do some football coaching.
What impact would winning have on the charity?
To have a company like DHL onboard, I feel this cause would get the attention of all the staff to donate unwanted items, which would benefit the people of these two communities.
What impact would winning have on the employee?
I would be able to help more families which would hopefully make a big difference to their lives.
