Swansea company raises over £2,000 for St John Ambulance Cymru

As 2023 comes to a close, St John Ambulance Cymru is thanking all the people and organisations that have supported the charity over the past year, in particular its corporate partners Seminar Components Ltd.

After naming the first aid charity for Wales as its first ever charity of the year in January, the seating design and manufacturing company has raised over £2,000 through various fundraising activities. St John Ambulance Cymru is extending its thanks to everyone at Seminar Components for their hard work and generosity throughout 2023.

The Swansea-based business is a leading supplier in bespoke lift and recline seating mechanisms. The partnership began after St John Ambulance Cymru assisted with supplying a defibrillator and delivered vital first aid training sessions for the company’s employees.

For Seminar Components, choosing a charity partner was not only a great way to improve the morale of staff through fun events and activities, but it was also a way to give back to their local community.

Following the year-long partnership, the business is reflecting on the success of their fundraising efforts. Annmarie Foligno, HR Manager for Seminar Components LTD said “We at Seminar Components chose to support St John Ambulance Cymru as our first charity partnership since our operation began due to the fantastic work they do for the community.

“Over the last year we have utilised our partnership with St John Ambulance Cymru to boost the morale and workplace satisfaction of our employees through bake sales, raffles, golf tournaments and numerous half marathons that our brave employees completed.

“These events have not only enabled us to bring our team together but collectively they have raised over £2,000 for charity, and we could not be prouder of their efforts in raising these funds for such a good cause.”
