A national technology company has raised over £600 for a children’s charity based on Merseyside.
Staff at Gas Tag, which is headquartered in Liverpool, have been fundraising for Sefton Children’s Trust throughout December and have taken part in a host of activities, including Liverpool’s annual Santa and Christmas Jumper Day.
Gas Tag also worked with a number of businesses in the region to host a festive raffle. Gas Tag sold over 200 tickets and prizes ranged from a Playstation Four to a meal for two at Viva Brazil.
The raffle was open to Gas Tag staff and employees of other businesses based in 4 St Pauls Square, raising £207 in total.
The money was used by Sefton Children’s Trust to purchase presents for children less fortunate and provide food hampers for families in need this Christmas.
Representatives from Gas Tag spent the morning supporting other volunteers at the charity who were sorting food and presents ahead of them being distributed.
Stacey Goodwin, Executive PA at Gas Tag, said: “Everyone has Gas Tag has really enjoyed getting into the festive spirit and raising vital funds for Sefton Children’s Trust. Christmas can be a very difficult time for some and we are just glad that we can provide a little help.
“I would like to thank all of the local businesses who supported us with raffle prizes, everyone who donated to our fundraising activities and all of our staff for getting involved.”
Staff at Pegasus Group’s Liverpool office also joined Gas Tag in collecting food for Sefton Children’s Trust.
Sefton Children’s Trust has been working with disadvantaged since 1984 and is run by a team of more than 40 volunteers from a range of backgrounds. The charity provides support for children over a three-year period, including a week-long summer residential which is often the sole holiday of the young people on the programme.
Gas Tag revolutionised the way gas safety is managed to when it launched its real-time technology solution to the market and the award-winning firm continues to drive innovation in the sector.
Currently, Gas Tag is used to support housing providers with their gas compliance. Once installed on the gas inlet within a home, Gas Tag tracks all the property’s gas appliances, installations and services, providing data in real-time back to the landlord or provider via an online portal. Engineers fill in the information using the app which can only be used by a Gas Safe Registered engineer.
