When disaster strikes, Cobham employees step
Our fundraising efforts vary from providing our expertise to
help reinstate communications systems to raising funds to donate
directly to charity. Previously Cobham has fundraised for the
January 2010 Haiti Earthquake, the Fukushima disaster in March 2011
and Hurricane Sandy in the Caribbean and US East Coast in late
We get involved in local, national and international good causes
that are important to our people. These range from taking part in
the Big Battlefield Bike Ride (BBBR) on behalf of Help for Heroes
and providing computer monitors for school children in Zimbabwe to
teaching in India, supporting the Air Ambulance Service in the UK's
Thames Valley and helping to equip Project Kaisei for the Pacific
Ocean clean-up project.
Employees in business Units across the company engaged in fund
raising efforts following the Nepal earthquake on 25th
April 2015. The company matched contributions up to £2500 and the
money raised was distributed across various official charities
supporting the Nepal earthquake. The Employees Activities Committee
in Davenport partnered with a Minor League Baseball Team, the Quad
City River Bandits, for a game on the evening of Friday 19th June.
Tickets were sold to employees, family and friends and
volunteers were recruited to help sell 'Charity Ball Toss' tennis
balls at the game, and raise additional funds.
Our involvement with the communities we are all part of - local,
national or international - benefits those charities we strive to
help, our business and our people.
