Beachy Head Chaplaincy

EMC are very proud to be supporting the Beachy Head Chaplaincy Team and it was great catching up with some of their team at Beachy Head this week.

We recently gave the Chaplaincy Team a brand new Suzuki Vitara S automatic to use as a patrol vehicle… What an absolutely amazing job the team do to help save lives.

We were also lucky enough to meet Inspector Rachel Barrow who works very closely with the Chaplaincy Team and was presenting them with a £15,000 donation from Sussex Police.

Here’s what Gail Whitington, CEO of Beachy Head Chaplaincy Team had to say about our Suzuki Vitara…

“Beachy Head Chaplaincy Team provides essential first response to search & rescue and crisis intervention for those people in crisis that come to the area to take their own lives. The provision of a vehicle from EMC has proved to be invaluable. Having access to reliable vehicles directly impacts the Teams patrolling ability and the rescues they undertake. We are grateful to EMC for partnering with us.”

Catterick Garrison Commander’s Big Breakfast 2017 Charity Event

We donated £200 Love 2 Shop Vouchers for their Charity Raffle.

The day was a huge success and the total raised was an incredible £1200.00.


The Garrison Commander’s Big Breakfast 2017 by the Garrison Gazette

On Thu, 14 Dec 2017, at the Richmond Centre, Munster Barracks, the Garrison Commander’s annual Big Breakfast was held. This event is the Garrison Commander’s way of thanking everyone for all their hard work and commitment over the last year as well as incorporating raising funds for charity. This year’s chosen three charities were The Almond Tree Project, NSPCC, St Teresa’s Hospice, Darlington and The Herriot Hospice Homecare.

To start off the morning proceedings the Pipers, Cpl Beatty and Cpl Warren of the RDG piped as Army and Civilian personnel and invited guests arrived.

Once through the doors the REME Band played Christmas favourites as everyone took their seats. Santa Claus was Mr Steve Meer, ITC, who got everyone in the Christmas spirit.

For the raffle 10 fabulous prizes were kindly donated by Sodexo, Media Force, The Black Lion Hotel Richmond, Eastbourne Motoring Centre Ltd, Wackadayz Catterick, Catterick Golf Club, The Turf Hotel Richmond, Cotswold Outdoor Catterick, Empire Cinema Catterick, SSgt Pickard, 1 REME, Tesco Catterick, Prezzo Catterick and Altberg, Richmond.

The wonderful decorated Christmas cake for ‘Guess the weight’ was made by the talented Cpl Finch, 1 REME and was won by Mr Rob Styles, APHC.

After a delicious cooked breakfast prepared and served by Sodexo Chefs and staff at The Richmond Centre, the REME Band did a fantastic job of entertaining everyone with a carol sing off and Christmas themed games with participants joining in which had everyone in the room laughing.

After the raffle was called the Garrison Commander, Lt Col Jordan, thanked Sodexo for their generous decision to waver all cost of the breakfasts so all proceeds from the ticket sales would go to the three charities.

The Garrison Commander also went on to say that this year has seen a lot of events around the Garrison like Party in the Park and the Firework Display. These events require a lot of planning and commitment from the staff that help to organise them. This often involves working outside of their contracted hours and more often than not, at weekends. He thanked WO2 Jez Chapman, RQMS and the staff from the GSU especially Drew, Griff, Sandra, Graeme and Sharin. With their help we have managed to raise £1847 for the Manchester Concert Appeal, Cancer Research UK and Red Nose Day charities. They were also instrumental in getting the Centenary Hub, in Piave Lines, up and running along with Caz Grundy and Hannah Rafferty who ensured that the place was clean for the grand opening back in September this year. Conrad Williams also from GSU was given a small award from St Teresa’s to show their appreciation of the support the Garrison has given them.

Special thanks were given to the chefs and kitchen staff for providing an excellent breakfast and WO1 Young and all the REME Band for entertaining everyone.

Finally Sharin Martin from GSU and RQMS Mark Smith were thanked for all the planning of the event and the gathering of raffle prizes.

We hope you had a great time at the Big Breakfast. A huge thank you to all who attended and supported the three charities.

The total amount you helped raise was an incredible £1200.00.

All the very best for 2018!
