In a move to make a real difference to the lives of personnel who have sustained injuries and illness attributed to their service in the British Armed Forces, UK CCTV manufacturer, 360 Vision Technology has recently donated £6,000 to the Help for Heroes charity.
360 Vision Technology, the manufacturer of a range of ruggedised PTZ surveillance cameras, handed over an initial cheque to Help for Heroes Area Fundraising Manager for the North West, Trevor Fudger at the company’s Cheshire based manufacturing facility and headquarters.
Commenting on the donation, Adrian Kirk, Strategic Account Director at 360 Vision Technology said: “When we launched the Invictus Ultra-Low-Light HD PTZ camera, the company decided to make a contribution to the charity based on camera sales, to help support military service people, who in turn, over the years have been a major user of 360 Vision’s video surveillance products.
“Handing over the first cheque was a tremendously proud moment for us all at 360 Vision and the proudest moment of my career. Some of our staff have family members currently in service, and our Chairman’s father flew Spitfires in World War II, so it felt like a natural fit for us to support serving personnel, veterans and their family members. We’re hoping that other UK businesses will help the charity too, as it really does make a major difference to people’s lives.”
Since Help for Heroes was founded in 2007, it has supported over 21,000 individuals. This is done in a variety of ways, from welfare advice and psychological support; new career and fellowship opportunities (for both the wounded and their loved ones), to courses and activities designed to benefit their physical and mental wellbeing. Much of this support is available at the Charity’s four Recovery Centres.
Trevor Fudger, Area Fundraising Manager for the North West said: “When signing up to the Armed Forces, Service personnel make a promise to protect our country. In return, Help for Heroes makes a commitment to support the wounded and their families, whenever they need us. To enable us to do that, we need the help of the public and of organisations like 360 Vision Technology, who we can’t thank enough for their generous donation.”
360 Vision Technology will continue their support for Help for Heroes with another donation based on Invictus camera product sales earmarked for this summer.
