SABIC employees and contractors working on SABIC’s Teesside Gas Cracking Project have marked a celebration of two million safe man hours worked by donating £6,000 to three local charities.
The team of workers based across both SABIC’s Wilton and North Tees sites were asked how they wanted to recognise the remarkable achievement. With an overriding majority, the team chose to give a donation to charity with the beneficiaries being Daisy Chain, Mesothelioma Charity Trust and Hartlepool & District Hospice.
Judith Haysmore, Daisy Chain, Chief Executive said, “We are overwhelmed by the generosity from the employees and contractors at SABIC. This donation means so much to our families affected by autism. We will be able to purchase a sensory tunnel for our soft play area and outdoor toys for the older children.
“This is something that will enhance the young people's experience at Daisy Chain. We can’t thank SABIC enough for their support.”
Carol Sennett, Corporate Fundraiser for Hartlepool & District Hospice, said “On behalf of everyone at Hartlepool & District Hospice, I would like to say a huge thank you to all at SABIC for this wonderful donation.
“The money will be used to directly fund the specialist care services we provide to our local community. Support from generous organisations such as SABIC is enormously valuable and enables us to continue our vital work with patients and families affected by incurable illnesses.”
Liz Darlison a Nurse Consultant for Mesothelioma UK said,“Mesothelioma is an industrial cancer and the UK has the highest incidence of it in the world. We are dedicated to supporting the NHS and to improving the lives of those affected and we thank you all for this significant donation”.
Gary Scorer, Senior Project Manager for the TGCP at SABIC, said “It was brilliant to engage both SABIC staff and our large number of contractors and subcontractors on how we wanted to celebrate this milestone. It is a great reflection on the team and their values that they chose to benefit local charities in this way.”
“Well done to everyone for their hard and safe work practices!”
