Select & Protect staff raise cash for charity

Staff have been raising money throughout 2010 with dress down days, raffles, sponsored activities and charity events. A cheque was presented to its chosen charity, South East Essex Advocacy for Older People (SEEAFOP).

Select & Protect’s parent company, The Hood Group, chose to support SEEAFOP over two years ago as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy and has continued to raise money and offer hands on help to the charity.

Simon Hood, chief executive of the Hood Group, said: “We take CSR very seriously here and are committed to being environmentally aware, supporting SEEAFOP and the local community and ensuring the continued wellbeing of our staff. This year, we’re delighted with our achievements towards the strategy, particularly raising so much for the charity, winning the Green Travel award at the Essex Business Awards and being named as Best Companies ‘One to Watch’.”
