The CCTV manufacturer 360 Vision Technology has donated £6,000 to the Help for Heroes charity. The manufacturer of a PTZ surveillance cameras handed over an initial cheque to Help for Heroes Area Fundraising Manager for the North West, Trevor Fudger, at the company’s Cheshire-based factory and head offices.
Adrian Kirk, Strategic Account Director at 360 said: “When we launched the Invictus Ultra-Low-Light HD PTZ camera, the company decided to make a contribution to the charity based on camera sales, to help support military service people, who in turn, over the years have been a major user of 360 Vision’s video surveillance products.
“Handing over the first cheque was a tremendously proud moment for us all at 360 Vision, and the proudest moment of my career. Some of our staff have family members currently in service, and our chairman’s father flew Spitfires in World War Two, so it felt like a natural fit for us to support serving personnel, veterans and their family members. We’re hoping that other UK businesses will help the charity too, as it really does make a major difference to people’s lives.”
Since Help for Heroes was founded in 2007, it has supported over 21,000. This is done in a variety of ways, from welfare advice and psychological support; new career and fellowship opportunities (for the wounded and their loved ones), to courses and activities designed to benefit their physical and mental well-being. Much of this support is available at the charity’s four Recovery Centres.
Trevor Fudger said: “When signing up to the Armed Forces, Service personnel make a promise to protect our country. In return, Help for Heroes makes a commitment to support the wounded and their families, whenever they need us. To enable us to do that, we need the help of the public and of organisations like 360 Vision Technology, who we can’t thank enough for their generous donation.”
360 Vision add that they will continue their support for Help for Heroes with another donation based on Invictus camera product sales earmarked for this summer.
