Dean Lloyd from Stansted Airport Fire & Rescue Service and his friend Richard Payne took part in the CLIC Sargent London to Paris Cycle Challenge on 13th-17th September 2017.
On the 13th September at 0700 the pair plus 32 others set off from London to Paris. Day one was a hard day in the saddle covering 95 miles with quite a few big inclines travelling down towards Dover. After the ferry crossing, there were a few miles to travel to the hotel.
Our security officers were invited to wear charity t-shirts throughout the summer holiday to promote our corporate charity and raise some funds. They have managed to raise over £1,100.
A big thank you to the operational colleagues that purchased a CLIC Sargent t-shirt to wear at work over the weekends during the summer period, along with customers who were encouraged to donate towards the charity, we have so far raised is over £1100 – which is a fantastic result!
Many congratulations to our team of Tough Mudders who took on the hills of Henley-on-Thames in the 10+ mile endurance challenge on 6th May. They battled through ice baths, sewer pipes and electrocution all in aid of or charity partner CLIC Sargent – and together raised almost £7,000! On average a quarter of all participants don’t actually finish the challenge but despite a few injuries along the way, every person crossed the finished line and earned their Tough Mudder headband. Brilliant effort by all!
There were Easter fun and games over at the Aerozone yesterday (12th April) organised by our charity committee. Over 30 children (and their guests) participated in various activities including an Easter bunny hunt! In total from ticket sales and activities on the day the event raised over £250 for CLIC Sargent. Thanks to all the volunteers and to our Ops and Fire Service teams for their support on the day.
To mark the first anniversary of the charity partnership between CLIC Sargent and Manchester Airports Group (MAG), Stansted Airport hosted a ‘Takeover Day’ on Saturday 17th December, where they invited families who have been supported by CLIC Sargent to spend the day with them.
Staff at Stansted organised a fun packed day for Timmy, Maxwell and their families. The children spent their day visiting the Fire Station, ATC tower, Terminal and the Police and Ops Teams.
The annual Children’s Christmas Party has took place on Sunday 11th December organised by the our Airport Fire and Rescue Service Team and supported by their families. Almost 200 children joined in the fun and took part in activities, which included face painting, children’s entertainer and visit to Santa in his Grotto amongst others.
This year, the event supported our charity partner, CLIC Sargent and through various activities and generous donations raised exactly £600!
Colleagues from across the business have again done a great job in supporting our charity partner, CLIC Sargent, with a range of Halloween inspired events. Most notably, the Halloween party at the Aerozone on Wednesday.
Daniela Deed, Alli Irvin, Jo Davies, Nicola Cook and Smudge to name a few, were all on hand to offer a spooky spectacular to children who attended. They were treated to a visit by our fire service and airfield ops, as well as a trip to the viewing platform and waving at some planes.
Dozens of bleary eyed but excited joggers replaced jet planes on Stansted Airport’s runway in the early hours of Sunday morning (June 5) for a unique charity fundraising event.
At around 3am, 100 airport staff sprinted, jogged and walked a 5km fun run course along the 3048 metre long airstrip in aid of the airport’s charity partner, CLIC Sargent.
There was nothing flat for Shrove Tuesday as passengers travelling from Stansted today (Feb 9) took up the challenge to become the airport’s top pancake flipper.
Before jetting off to one of the airport’s 170 destinations, flipping crazy passengers helped raise cash for the charity CLIC Sargent, tossing their pancakes to see how many flips they could notch up in one minute.
