The rule book was well and truly torn up in 2020, so in keeping with that theme, Aviation Job Search decided to do their corporate Christmas gifts a little different this year.

Instead of thanking clients with their usual corporate gifts, they opted to use that money to provide much needed support in the local community.

The money was split between a food bank donation and presents to homeless teenagers, distributed through the Streetlife organisation in Blackpool.

Food banks up and down the country have seen an increase in demand since the pandemic took a serious hold back in March. With thousands losing their jobs, and many more furloughed, food banks are anticipating a busy winter period ahead.

Aviation Job Search Director, Dave Capper, said, “It’s been an extremely challenging year and we’re delighted to contribute towards these amazing charities.”

He continued, “We’re always grateful to our loyal customers, but this year more than ever. The aviation industry has been hit hard this year and we send our best wishes to anyone who has been affected. We hope our customers are pleased to have had this donation made in their name.”

“We’re delighted to contribute towards these amazing charities.”

 On top of an already generous donation made through Aviation Job Search, the Aviation Job Search team wanted to do their bit as well, collectively adding another stack of food and toiletries to the donation.

Key Account Manager, Natasha Metcalf, said, “This company is very generous anyway, there is always a bake sale or charity bike ride going on somewhere, but I think we all knew we needed to give even more this Christmas.”

She continued, “Our industry has been devastated in the last six months and we’re just grateful to still be working when thousands aren’t. Our contribution to the food bank is the least we could do.”
