Celebrating Volunteering and Fundraising efforts of our People

The South Hook LNG Staff Participation Programme continues to support the many volunteers and fundraisers across the Company, committed to raising much needed funds for their chosen community groups. 

Community groups, including sports clubs, charities and schools’ Friends Associations, have received match funding as individuals working at the Terminal willingly gave up their evenings and weekends, either volunteering or fundraising for a cause close to their hearts.

Our volunteers gave up an impressive 420 hours of their free time last year and money raised through the Company’s match funding, has contributed to everything from safety and sports equipment to fundraising and wellbeing events. We are very proud of all our volunteers and fundraisers, dedicating so much time to so many worthwhile causes across our county.

Community organisations that received support following efforts of our community volunteers, include Cleddau Reach School PFA and Templeton School PTA, Wiseman’s Bridge Rowing Club, Pembrokeshire Yacht Club, Neptune’s Army of Rubbish Collectors (NARC) and Haverfordwest Town Council, as well as a number of local rugby, football and golf clubs. Ty Hafan, Cancer Research UK, Mind Pembrokeshire and RNLI Pembroke Ladies Lifeboat Guild, also received funds, due to match funding activities, successfully undertaken by the Company’s fundraisers.
