In January 2018, Halewood Operations will launch voting for the plant’s next ‘Charity of the Year’. Our employees and suppliers have already helped raise over £200,000 for Down Syndrome Liverpool and the James Apter Friendship Fund over the past two fundraising years.
The selection process will comprise of two stages. From Tuesday 2 January to Friday 19 January, employees from across the plant can vote for any local charity which meets the below criteria and they think most deserves our support. A final voting stage, which will be a shortlist of several local charities with the most votes, will take place from Monday 29 January to Friday 16 February.
The charity which receives the most votes will be announced in March 2018 and will be the plant's charity of the year until March 2019. The Charity of the Year Committee will review the final results and may allocate a percent of total fundraising to some shortlisted charities to increase the number of people we can help.
