At the beginning of 2021, Sheffield Forgings launched ‘STOP for charity’ initiative, which helps to keep our business safe and compliant whilst raising money for local charities.
Throughout the year, we awarded staff members a STOP coin (with a charitable value of £10) every time a process was stopped for a safety or quality related issue which was then donated by the team member to one of three local charities: Sheffield Mind, the Sheffield Children’s Hospital Charity and Burngreave Foodbank.
We closed the year with 103 coins counted; a total of £1030 has been donated to our three chosen charities!
Tamas Papp, General Manager at Forged Solutions Group, says,
“This has been a very positive and rewarding initiative across our sites. Safety is one of our core values and an integral part of our culture. The “STOP for charity” initiative has been a win-win where we can help in the local community and celebrate hazard recognition and rectification. We are proud to have donated over £1000 to three charities in Sheffield that have helped our teams directly, and we hope our donations will contribute to their vital work.”
