Local young professionals raise over £2,000 for Danica's Dream Fund

NEWS

Employees from Sellafield Ltd, Morgan Sindall and Arup recently held a charity fundraiser to raise money for Danica’s Dream Fund, a charity which provides financial assistance to the families of children and young people who are fighting childhood cancer.

Those who organised and took part in the event were part of the Young Professionals Network (YPN), who all work on the Infrastructure Strategic Alliance (ISA), which is a £1.1 billion contract to provide essential infrastructure assets to the Sellafield site.

The fundraiser was held at Whitehaven Amateur Football Club. The evening began with the charity football match between members of the ISA team, followed by a race night. A charity 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. Danica’s Dream Fund is an exceptional charity, and we are proud to be able to help families of children with childhood cancer. We would like to thank everyone for their generosity and for supporting this 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.
