We support regional charities based in Ireland, Sheffield, Moray and Redditch.
Aoibheann’s Pink Tie
We support Aoibheann’s Pink Tie, the national children’s cancer charity in Ireland, through a corporate grant and employee fundraising. Our Dublin-based team took part in the Aoibheann's Pink Tie's Plane Pull at Dublin Airport, joined by children from St. John's Oncology Ward in Crumlin Hospital. The charity provides financial and practical support to children and their families battling cancer in Ireland, after being set up in 2010 by Mick Rochford and Jimmy Norman after the loss of Jimmy’s daughter Aoibheann to cancer.
Golddigger Trust works with 11-21 year olds in and around Sheffield. We support their wellbeing development project, which aims to have a positive impact on the mental health of the young people who find themselves in challenging circumstances, that come to weekly drop in sessions. The sessions focus on wellbeing, building confidence and resilience. The young people are given the opportunity to suggest ideas that would benefit them, including exercise classes and a course on how to manage your emotions.
Outfit Moray is a charity based near RAF Lossiemouth in Moray, Scotland. We support their Activ8 programme of outdoor learning and adventure for young people after school and during school holidays. Over 100 sessions are run each year and 700 local children can take part in activities including rock climbing, mountain biking and kayaking. Our partnership means Outfit Moray sessions are as accessible as possible at a subsidised cost.
Jon Egging Trust
The Jon Egging Trust supports young people who find themselves in difficult circumstances by helping them to overcome adversity and achieve their full potential. They deliver accredited learning programmes to develop young people’s life and work skills by providing access to inspirational role models and life-changing opportunities linked to aviation, engineering and science.
The Jon Egging Trust raises aspirations, confidence and self-esteem, helping young people to re-engage with education and make informed choices about their futures through two youth engagement initiatives: Blue Skies and Inspirational Outreach, which Boeing now supports.
