Axis Security Celebrates Employee Commitment to Charity

28/01/2014

Axis Security Coast to Coast Challenge

Employees of Axis Security have raised more than £5,000 over the last 12 months in a variety of fundraising activities to benefit many charities across the UK.

Whilst Axis Security has contributed to a number of worthwhile projects as a business – including building a community garden and an adventure playground for local causes – 2013 was dominated by good deeds, endurance tests and entrepreneurial spirit from its employees across the country.

Fundraising activities have seen Axis Security employees cover more than 1200 miles swimming, running or cycling – with many thousands more covered in training, and staff have also baked and eaten more than 30 cakes.

The combined efforts have raised some £5,350 for charities that include Marie Curie, Breast Cancer and Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.

Jonathan Levine, Axis Group CEO is delighted with his team’s sense of community spirit: “We are proud of their efforts and success over the year, and we are pleased to see so many employees either getting involved or showing their support through donations,” he says.

In March of this year Axis Security is entering its employee Gary Stanton in the Broadgate Estates sponsored Cycle to Cannes challenge, seeing him ride from London to Cannes in the south of France in six days. Against all the elements Gary will be putting in many hours of practice in order to successfully complete the event and raise £3,000 for a number of charities including Coram, Article 25, Tom's Trust, The MSA Trust and the Emthonjeni Trust.

A big thank you goes to our employees and customers who have helped support charitable events over the past year.
