Celebrating the Fundraising and Volunteering Successes of our People

Our Staff Participation Programme supports people in their community volunteering and fundraising activities, by match funding or recognising the time that they give through donations to community organisations.

We are proud that so many of our people are able and willing to offer their time and energy to supporting community projects. We share a number of these initiatives with you, below.

 Alexandra Jones, Financial Analyst

Templeton C.P. School PTAAs

Treasurer of the school’s PTA, Alex uses her financial skills to prepare annual accounts, among other things. Alex thanked South Hook LNG for supporting her volunteering efforts, saying that the money has been used to purchase laptops and reading books for the school.  

 

Chris Lloyd, Electrical Technician

Wales Air Ambulance

In May last year, Chris took part in the gruelling Run, Walk, Crawl, Brecon to Cardiff, Ultra Marathon challenge! A 42-mile race!
“Wales Air Ambulance is instrumental in saving lives and do not receive any government funding. The match funding I received from South Hook LNG boosted the money I raised, for which I am really grateful.”

 

Karl Rozblat, Process Operator

Milford Haven Rugby Football Club

Juggling his time, Karl chairs and coaches not only Milford Haven Junior Rugby Under 11’s team, but also coaches the Milford Haven RFC Minis.
“South Hook LNG has been very generous supporting me through the staff community participation programme,” said Karl.

 

Jon Collier, Process Operator

Haverfordwest Grand National Soapbox Derby

As Town Councillor in 2016, Jon helped organise the Haverfordwest Festival Week in July, involving writing event entry rules and regulations, risk assessments and arranging publicity.
Jon was keen to thank South Hook LNG for a donation, supporting his volunteering efforts, along with contributions from other local sponsors.

Andy Davies, Process Operator

Neptune’s Army of Rubbish Cleaners (NARC)

Keeping the Pembrokeshire waters safe and clean, Andy has volunteered with NARC since 2005.   “Without South Hook LNG’s continuing financial support, small volunteer groups like NARC would struggle to continue, making a difference to the cleanliness of the waters in the Milford Haven Waterway”, said Andy.

Christian Smart, Process Operator

Pembrokeshire Yacht Club

Christian is a volunteer Senior Sailing Instructor and Training Principal. “Financial assistance from South Hook LNG has been used to replaced safety equipment such as lifejackets and VHF radios, among other things,” said Christian.
