CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY >
Showing great festive spirit, CELSA employees raised money for Cardiff Foodbank in the lead up to Christmas. Cardiff Foodbank are a branch of the Trussell Trust, they rely on donations so they can continue their important work providing emergency food to those in need.
We also managed to collect a whopping 214 Easter eggs in 2021 over the space of two weeks, for local charity Action for Children Cardiff. These were distributed to children across Cardiff who were unlikely to be receiving an Easter egg.
SCHOOL COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT
Investing in the local community is an important part of what we do at CELSA. This year we have attended a careers event at a local secondary school promoting STEM careers, and which skills are required for the job. We are active participants in The Cardiff Commitment, supporting young people into STEM-related work, and have forged long lasting links with local primary and secondary schools by facilitating job fairs and mock interviews with young people. We have even undertaken speed-dating style meetings with potential apprentices. Some of our members of staff, having completed CELSA apprenticeships, have returned to their primary and secondary schools to discuss their journeys.
