As part of our commitment to CSR and work in the community, Jaguar Land Rover Solihull employees support through various successful initiatives.
As well as volunteering nearly 5000 hours to good causes in the last 12 months, many groups across the region benefit from donations from the Land Rover Charity Fund which comes from employee voluntary payroll deductions, and helps to make a positive difference in our communities.
The Land Rover Charity Fund recently donated £5000 towards a new Chemotherapy Day Unit at Heartlands Hospital, which provides a safe and comfortable environment for those receiving treatment.
Justine Davy, Head of Fundraising at the hospital charity said: “This is a fantastic show of support from all of the people at Jaguar Land Rover Solihull. Huge thanks go to everyone at the plant, especially those from the Charity Committee who decided to donate such a generous amount of money to support this project.”
Sharon Gray, secretary of the Charity Fund commented:
"It's a lovely part of my job when I can tell people we're making a donation to their cause. Helping towards the Chemotherapy Day Unit at Heartlands Hospital is a great way for us to support our community as so many of us are touched by Cancer.
Over the last two years I am proud to say that at a plant level we've donated nearly £20,000 to UHB NHS Foundation Trust for a variety of fundraising projects. Across our workforce there is always the desire to help local organisations, especially the local hospitals. Without the generosity of our associates we wouldn't be able to give donations to charities like these, and many others that we support throughout the year.”
