LGI gets boost from Ctrack
20th January 2011
VEHICLE tracking business Ctrack has raised £1,500 for Leeds Teaching Hospitals Charitable Foundation following a prize draw.
The money will be used to buy equipment for six new fire fighters who have joined the Helipad Fire Response Team at Leeds General Infirmary.
More than 100 employees at Ctrack’s Leeds-based head office and from around the UK entered into the festive spirit by snapping up all available tickets at the company's Christmas party to support the charity.
Earlier this year Ctrack committed to raising at least £5,000 to help expand the NHS-certified Helipad Fire Response Team.
The team of 15 was originally set up in 1997 and works alongside the Air Ambulance community providing vital aviation support for road traffic accidents, industrial trauma and sporting injuries.
Ctrack aims to supply all the required equipment such as protective suits, boots and helmets for the six new members by organising a series of fundraising events.
Tom O’Connor, managing director of Ctrack, said: “The Helipad Fire Response Team at Leeds General Infirmary provides an invaluable service to the region and richly deserve our support for the wonderful job they do.
“Everyone at Ctrack would like to thank Leeds United FC, Metro Buses, West Yorkshire Playhouse, Chevin Country Park Hotel & Spa, Bewleys Hotel, Radisson Blu, Park Plaza, West Yorkshire Police, The Verve Restaurant at the Village Hotel, The Wardrobe Restaurant, Sous Le Nez en Ville Restaurant, Tiger Tiger, Alea Casino, Zest @ Eclipse, Noblet Municipal, Go Ape, and Christopher Ward Watches for providing prizes and their support.”
