Making a Difference: Our Communities
Whilst our priorities are to look after our colleagues and customers and ensure the long-term health of the Group, it is also important that we step up to make a difference to the communities in which we operate, working to be a proactive and positive influence beyond our business.
Each of our businesses is implementing various initiatives to support the communities close to them. As a decentralised Group, our goal is to support our businesses in their contributions towards their local communities. There are many initiatives in place across the Group, here are a few examples:
AMT Surgical and Vantage Endoscopy made a real difference to the safety of frontline workers by donating a total of 10,000 much-needed N95 masks to local healthcare providers.
HKX have made a wonderful, personal effort to support their local communities. They have given to 14 different charities and have donated the equivalent of 12,000 meals. Incredibly, 85% of those donations were personal donations made by individual team members giving what they could to support those affected by COVID-19.
FPE Seals and DMR Seals
Colleagues at sister companies FPE Seals & DMR Seals have donated PPE to several frontline workers in their local communities. Both companies worked together to support the COVID-19 ward at James Cook University Hospital by donating safety glasses to protect health workers. DMR Seals has also donated additional PPE to two local care homes that were desperately in need.
TOTALSEAL in Australia has partnered with a local pharmacy to provide face masks and sanitisers to a Sydney-based homeless shelter and drop-in centre. TOTALSEAL will continue to provide ongoing support during the pandemic.
