News: Zonal Partners with new charity – Only a Pavement Away
Zonal is proud to announce a new charity partnership with Only a Pavement Away, to support those living on the streets find employment in the hospitality industry.
Over the last four years Zonal has raised more than £114,490 for Hope for Children, which supports children who have limited life opportunities at home and abroad.
Zonal was recognised for the sustained way that staff have engaged with the partnership at every level, from running cake stalls in the office, to jumping out of aeroplanes on sponsored sky dives. Over the years, the company’s management team has also visited Hope for Children projects in India, to see how the charity is improving the lives of children locally.
In Scotland, Zonal is supporting Hope for Children’s partner the Lothian Autistic Society, which provides services, information and practical support to individuals, families and carers affected by autism.
Commenting on the award, Zonal’s sales & marketing director, Clive Consterdine, said: “It has been a humbling experience working with Hope for Children and to experience first-hand the difference their fantastic work makes to the lives of young people and their families.
This award is for the Zonal team who have embraced the challenge of fundraising for Hope for Children!”
Hope for Children’s Head of Fundraising and Communications, Jennie Gillions, added: “We are absolutely thrilled to give Zonal our Corporate Partner of the Year award. We have been partners with Zonal for almost five years and they have raised an amazing sum of money to support our work. They have done everything from gin tasting evenings to sending their staff to climb up Mount Kilimanjaro. It is thoroughly deserved and we’re incredibly grateful for all they do for us.”
