Ingot Services continues its support for Suffolk youth charity
Out & About, the Suffolk based charity which provides opportunities for disabled young people across East Anglia, has held its annual awards evening, honouring its young volunteers. Corporate sponsor, cleaning contractor Ingot Services, was there to join in the celebrations.
Ingot's Managing Director Alan Maynard was delighted to be asked to present an award on the night.: "I was really pleased to be asked to attend what was an uplifting and inspiring evening," he says. "Everyone who gives their time to the charity in whatever role they can gives something to the lives of those young people who otherwise might not get the chance to fulfil their wish to try an activity or learn a skill that will make a big difference to their lives."
Ingot became the charity's first corporate sponsor earlier this year, backing the 'iam out there' series of lifeskills programmes.
Out & About's Kate Higgs explains how vital Ingot's support has been: "Being able to run the programmes enables us to help more young people make the transition from childhood to adulthood with greater confidence. Many things that we take for granted like using public transport, road safety or handling money are daunting for young people with disabilities and 'iam out there' really does help to get them 'out there'!
"We are always really grateful to all our volunteer helpers, fundraisers and sponsors; they contribute so much to the charity with their spirit, energy and generosity."
Alan says that as an employer he is a great believer in providing opportunities for those who need someone to invest some trust in their ability. "I have no doubt that Out & About does many great things to help unlock the potential of young people living with a disability," he says. "I hope more businesses continue to come forward to sponsor the programmes."
