Accord Proudly Sponsor the Charity Champions Award

On Tuesday December the 5th 2017, we at Accord Healthcare were pleased to sponsor the Charity Champions category at the Devon Community Honours.   Sandra Lee, Managing Director of Operations, explained why charitable giving is important to the organisation:

“At Accord Healthcare we take our responsibility as one of the area’s largest employers very seriously and pride ourselves on the support we give to our local charities and charitable initiatives.  Our approach to working closely with our charity partners has remained consistent, whether it’s enabling employee time for activities, supporting fund raising or both if that’s what our partners need. We do our utmost to support them as we know the local community really benefits from their efforts.”

“We are also immensely proud of the dedication of some of our employees to supporting local events and we match their fundraising efforts wherever possible.  We always encourage our staff to get involved in charity events and undoubtedly this will continue to increase in 2018.  However, it is wonderful to finish this year by sponsoring the Charity Champions category at the Devon Community Honours Awards as it’s so closely connected to our own.”

At Accord Healthcare we support a number of local causes, including the North Devon Hospice and the Calvert Trust throughout 2017.

This has involved a wide range of employee teams from the Operations department, across to Quality Assurance and IT, taking part in the Devon Hospice Mission: Unbreakable challenge as well as completing the Barnstaple half-marathon, all helping to raise even more money for the North Devon Hospice.  Accord Healthcare, through numerous employee teams and their fund raising along with company support, has raised significant funds for the charity that help care for local people affected by cancer and other life-limiting illnesses.

In addition during the summer, to support the local disabled charity The Calvert Trust Exmoor, our Procurement team swapped their desks for shovels and spades to help transform the charity’s courtyard garden.  

In 2017, Accord Healthcare has also donated over half a million pounds* to the International Health Partners, Europe’s largest coordinator of donated medicines, to support patients around the world that cannot access the medicines they need.
