London – earlier this year, SAS Global Communications, an international provider of managed and professional network services, launched the SAS World Free Project UK to raise money for people living with Motor Neurone Disease (MND) and this weekend sees the conclusion of one of its latest fundraising initiatives when five brave employees take part in the Regent’s Park 10K run, on Saturday 3 July, in a bid to raise more than £2500 for the cause.
In the final line up for the race are CEO Charles Davis, COO Nicholas Cothill, CFO David Biggins, CSD Mike Stichbury and CVO Alex Stott. Chairman Steve Stanway has been forced to pullout due to injury.
“Although as a company we’ve always donated to charities, we were slightly sceptical about the value of running a structured programme of CSR activities,” said Davis. “But apart from benefiting the MNDA, we’ve also seen a really positive impact on staff and client relationships, many of whom have made personal donations to the cause.”
“We’ve still got a lot of work to do before we reach our £21k target for the year but our CSR programme seems to have unified SAS on many levels, and right now it’s got everyone focused on taking the mickey out of the SAS management team ahead of Saturday’s 10k run.”
