The Service Is Secure With GMS

Security services organisation, GMS, has chosen to support MAAC with a number of initiatives throughout 2014, as Neil Male, group executive director for the company, explains: “I take our role within the community extremely seriously and I encourage our staff to do the same. When I met with the fundraising team and learnt about the financial challenges facing the Midlands Air Ambulance, I knew I

wanted to support this great service.”

Among the range of proposed fundraising activities for the year, GMS has pledged to be a gold sponsor at this year’s Recognition Awards and Charity Ball, and will buy two tickets to MAAC’s fundraising lottery for all 350 members of staff. In addition, the company will fund a life saving mission, and Neil has personally expressed an interest in undertaking a MAAC challenge such as the sky dive in July.

Sofia Voutianitis, regional fundraising manager for the charity, comments: “Sustained commitment from our corporate partners, like GMS, is vital to our service. We’re delighted to have an award winning organisation on board and look forward to working with Neil and his team throughout the year.”
