We want our customers to continue to think of ETI as a business that puts something back into the community and within our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Policy, we have created a project called ‘ETI in the Community’.
Our intention is to work together with Eco-friendly projects, educational work experience placements and a sharing of career prospects and temperature
“ETI in the Community” is the specific medium through which we offer support for local events and sponsorship.
Although there is no intended distinction/preference with regard to support,
We are delighted to announce that we have chosen Ferring Country Centre as our chosen charity to support and raise funds for.
Ferring Country Centre is a local independent charity providing training and work experience for people with learning disabilities. Their customers continue to develop work and social skills by assisting with the operation of the Riding Therapy Unit, Garden Centre, Café and Farm.
The Centre was established in 1986 by a small group of parents, who saw the need for a meaningful setting for their children to attend. The Charity remains committed to people with Learning Disabilities being an active part of their community, whilst developing their skills and confidence.
We believe this will be a fantastic partnership and we look forward to raising as much money as possible to help support the charity’s invaluable work. This will be done through employee fundraising, volunteer days and charitable initiatives.
For the last three years, ETI staff have helped to raise vital funds for Bluefin Ward, Worthing Hospital during the month of December. In total, ETI staff have raised over £1500 for the children’s ward thanks to a special fundraising initiative held each year. During a visit in January 2018, a cheque was presented to the ward by ETI employees.
