Rensburg Sheppards saves old soles for Yorkshire Air Ambulance
5th April 2011
STAFF at investment management company Rensburg Sheppards are supporting Yorkshire Air Ambulance with their ‘Save Old Soles’ recycling campaign.
Employees at the firm’s Leeds and Sheffield offices have collected over 75 kilos of shoes which will be despatched to a variety of East European, African and Asian countries and sold in second hand shops and market stalls.
Rensburg Sheppards has sponsored Yorkshire Air Ambulance for almost three years and has looked after the charity’s share portfolio throughout that time.
Stacey Johnson, investment manager at the Leeds office, said: “We are delighted to be supporting Yorkshire Air Ambulance with this superb initiative, and have had a great response from our staff located at the two offices.
“By collecting shoes we are physically boosting the campaign as well as raising awareness of it amongst the general public. Alongside this specific initiative, we continue to encourage our clients and associates to keep local charities front of mind when gifting shares.”
Kate Collinson from Yorkshire Air Ambulance added: “It costs the charity £7,200 each day to keep both of our helicopters in the air and recycling is a great way for people to support the YAA and help us raise the vital funds we need.”
