Sellafield Ltd, Morgan Sindall and Arup have held a charity fundraiser to raise money for Hospice at Home West Cumbria, to celebrate and recognise the charity’s 30 year anniversary. The charity provides high quality care and support to patients, carers and families affected by a life-limiting illness.

The young professionals are all employed on the Infrastructure Strategic Alliance (ISA) contract, which is a £1.1 billion contract to provide essential infrastructure assets to the Sellafield site.

The fundraiser was held earlier this month at Whitehaven Amateur Football Club. The evening began with a charity football match between members of the ISA team, followed by a race night. A raffle was also held, with a range of prizes.

The ISA is committed to developing the next generation of employees through their Young Professionals Network (YPN). The YPN enables young professionals to take part in activities outside of their usual role, to foster both their personal and professional development. The network also gives employees the opportunity to invest their time in charity and enrichment activities such as the fundraiser.

Hayley Musk, YPN member said: “It’s incredibly rewarding to be able to raise money for such a worthy cause. Hospice at Home West Cumbria helps so many people in the local area, and the YPN saw this as an opportunity to give something back. We’re delighted to have raised over £1,000, and would like to thank everyone who came to support the event.”

The ISA delivery partners are committed to developing and investing in the local area, and building relationships with local suppliers. The ISA provides Sellafield Ltd with the capability and capacity to deliver a growing programme of infrastructure projects required for an aging asset portfolio. The contract is primarily aimed at utility assets, such as the on-site provision and distribution of steam, electricity, water supply, compressed air, bulk chemical storage and distribution, civil infrastructure and other facilities including roads, bridges and car parks.
