Bowman is delighted to announce they have selected Asthma UK as their charity partner for the remainder of 2018 and 2019.
As a provider of energy efficiency technologies that help reduce carbon emissions, Bowman were keen to find a charity that fit with their values. They evaluated several different charities and felt Asthma UK were the best fit with their goal “to be passionate about our technology, the environment and our company”.
Wendy Stansfield, Head of HR at Bowman, worked directly on the team that chose the charity. She commented “Asthma UK’s leading work in research and development, campaigning and working directly to help those with asthma really resonated with our team. They have a great programme of events, and we have a very active organisation that are keen to get involved. We can’t wait to start fundraising.”
Louise Thomas, Head of Events and Community Fundraising for Asthma UK said: “We want to say a heartfelt thank you to Bowman for choosing Asthma UK as their charity partner for this year and next. Asthma UK does not receive any government funding and it is only through generous supporters, like the staff at Bowman, that we are able to support the 5.4million people in the UK who have asthma. The money raised will help us to provide one-to-one advice and support through our helpline nurses, fund ground-breaking research into a cure for asthma, and campaign to improve asthma care.”
Bowman has already committed to supporting Asthma UK at the Simplyhealth Great South Run in October and will be delivering a programme of other fundraising activities in the coming months.
