Sagentia Innovation has donated £2,000 to help low-income families access Red Balloon of the Air’s (RBAir) education, welfare, and re-engagement support.
Cambridge-based Sagentia Innovation is a science and engineering company that offers product advisory and development services to the medical, consumer, food & beverage, and industrial, chemicals & energy sectors. Committed to supporting organisations that assist vulnerable and disadvantaged people, the company staff nominated local charities that were important to them.
RBAir was nominated and selected when Sagentia Innovation saw the impact the charity has on young people who are highly traumatised, some of whom are so traumatised they can’t leave their bedrooms. “We are pleased to be able to offer a contribution to this great cause and we hope our donation helps make a difference to the young people, and their families,” says Mike Painter, Head of HR.
“We are so grateful and thrilled to be chosen,” says Christina Smith, RBAir Assistant Headteacher.
“This money will go directly towards our Hardship and Participation fund which supports low-income families to access RBAir provision in terms of paying for transport or covering fuel costs for families as well as essential equipment needed to access the online support.”
Support from businesses and individuals is invaluable as it increases the opportunities of young people to benefit from RBAir support across the whole community. We work with a number of businesses across East Anglia and the South East, creating tailor-made Corporate Donor Programmes that align with their charitable giving policies.
Red Balloon of the Air is a registered charity and as such cannot continue helping young people without the kind donations and support from trusts and businesses. To contribute in any way please get in touch with us.
