We are actively involved in the community throughout Hays Travel Birtley. Our branch is the main sponsor for the annual awards night at Birtley Athletics Club and we’ve also sponsored local events involving Macmillan Cancer Research and the Stroke Association.
In June 2015, a couple of us attended the Birtley Athletics Club awards night, which was held at the Emirates Durham International Cricket Ground. We presented the trophies, paid £148 for the medals and even donated a £100 gift voucher for the raffle.
For the Stroke Association, Amy (our assistant manager) and Helen (our senior sales consultant) went to a charity evening held in June 2015 and donated a £50 gift voucher to help raise money. In August 2015, we gave a £100 gift voucher to a charity night for Macmillan Cancer Research that took place in Birtley Catholic Club.
It’s not all charity and awards nights with us. We also support Thomas Whitfield, who is a local, unbeaten, professional boxer from Birtley Boxing Club. In January 2015, we gave Thomas £110 for his medical examination and blood tests, so he could renew his boxing license.
