We regularly support and care for charities such as The Eve Appeal Gynaecological Cancer Research Charity and The Crohn's & Colitis Company.
In addition, each year we choose a charity at Christmas to receive a special donation made on behalf of the employees of the Company. We are proud of our heritage regarding our charitable donations and we will continue to focus on good causes in the future.
While we continue to proudly work with The Eve Appeal Gynaecological Cancer Research Charity (our nominated Company Charity), we have previously supported other charities too either through our products or raising money through staff events.
We have supported Crohn’s and Colitis UK via one of our products and we also run regular charity events within the Company to raise funds for various other charities.
‘The Eve Appeal’ is the only UK charity dedicated to fighting the five gynaecological cancers through world-leading research. Sadly 58 women are diagnosed with a gynaecological cancer each and every day in the UK, and 21 will die.
We partnered with The Eve Appeal to raise awareness on our sanitary disposal systems and encourage women to check themselves. 50p from the sale of every Femcare™ MVP unit in the UK is given by Vectair Systems to The Eve Appeal gynaecological cancer research charity. As a feminine hygiene provider and having had staff whom had personal experiences to this cancer, we feel very strongly about supporting The Eve Appeal in its quest to raise funds for gynaecological cancer research.Find Out More.
The MoonWalk London is the original night charity walk organised by grant making breast cancer charity 'Walk the Walk'. The event involves walking through London at night in a decorated bra whilst raising money and breast cancer awareness.
Staff @ our EMEA Head Office held a Charity 'Bake Off' in aid of 'MoonWalk London 2018' that our very own Debbie Bellamy, participated in, raising vital funds & awareness for Breast Cancer. We also had our own Paul Hollywood 'lookalike' on hand to add a touch of 'celebrity' glamour to the staff run event.
The Crohn’s & Colitis UK Walk It campaign encourages its 33,000 members and their friends and families to walk either 5k or 10k in eight locations across the UK, to help raise money and awareness of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).
Walks take place all over the UK annually. Vectair Systems were delighted to be involved as a 2017 sponsor via our Phew!® brand of natural toilet spray. Bottles of Phew!® featured in the toilets set up along the London 'Walk It' route, for walkers should they had needed it. Sam Afhim, Director of Income Generation at Crohn’s and Colitis UK said:
“This announcement is fantastic and we would like to thank Vectair Systems and it’s Phew!® brand for sponsoring the toilets on our WALK IT campaign. People living with Inflammatory Bowel Disease such as Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis can be very disadvantaged by the impact of their condition. The experience or fear of unpredictably having to use the bathroom is very undermining to a person’s confidence and self-esteem and can lead in some cases to the person affected becoming too anxious to leave their home. Having these toilets at our events will hopefully ease the anxiety for people living with a chronic health conditions and encourage more people to take part in these community events.”
