ATF Fuels partner with Les Amis
Les Amis is proud to announce that they have partnered with local company, ATF Fuels, who will be offering the charity long-term support in reaching their goals. As well as special concessions on fuel for their care homes, offices and vehicles ATF Fuels will also be donating their time volunteering for the charity and organising their own fundraising events.
The partnership between the two organisations arose from their shared values – of going beyond the remit of their jobs to help members of the community and to work with an enthusiastic approach.
Fiona Potts, Business Development and Marketing Manager at ATF Fuels said: “We have been looking for a local charity to partner with that has a strong focus on the community. After meeting with Les Amis we were amazed by their outlook, passion and values. They have a great attitude toward the work they do and provide an invaluable care service to families and those with disabilities. We are very excited to work with Les Amis and have already started to plan how our team with be contributing towards upcoming events.”
ATF Fuels will be launching an internal corporate initiative allowing their staff to give back to a worthwhile cause through the partnership with Les Amis. This will see the company host bake sales, volunteer at Les Amis’ regular events and have an involvement with the charity’s entry into this year’s Battle of Flowers.
Jason Loveless, Head of Support Services at Les Amis, said: “We are extremely grateful that ATF Fuels chose us as their chosen charity. This is going to be a long-term relationship which we believe will be beneficial to us both and will certainly help our residents. Our corporate partnerships are not always about looking for financial donations, we value people and firms who are willing to give up their time for Les Amis and generally spread awareness of what we do here.”
Les Amis is an award-winning charity which helps those with learning disabilities to read rich and rewarding lives. The charity employs over 200 staff, helping to deliver almost 1 million hours of care each year to over 140 residents and local families.
