Corporate Social Responsibility
Our employees have raised an incredible sum of £3,500 for children's cancer charity, Gafael Llaw
Our colleague-nominated local charity is Gafael Llaw, in which we arranged various fundraising events. From a cake and a book sale, to a walking challenge which saw 10 members of staff walking from the summit of Snowdon to Caernarfon castle.
Gafael Llaw supports children and young people from Gwynedd and Anglesey suffering from cancer. The Charity provides direct support for Dewi Ward in Ysbyty Gwynedd, and is also committed to supporting Alder Hey in Liverpool and CLIC Sargent charity. The Charity is run solely by volunteers.
Prof. Dr. Fraser Logue, Vice President and Managing Director from Siemens Healthineers said, "Our staff were inspired by the great work of Gafael Llaw. The work of this local charity pushed people up mountains in atrocious weather and brought out the bakers in an army of staff. I am incredibly proud of the money raised by our staff for such an important cause."
Gafael Llaw Chairman, Iwan Trefor Jones, added, “We have recently funded a sensory room and new ventilator machine at Ward Dewi, Ysbyty Gwynedd. With continued support of companies such as Siemens Healthineers in Llanberis, we can achieve so much more to ensure the best possible care and facilities for children with cancer in north Wales."
