Community Case Study

When disaster strikes, Cobham employees step up

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 2012.



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.
