Armed Forces Week 2021
To mark the Armed Forces Day and week, and to raise money for Combat Stress, the UK’s leading charity for veterans’ mental health, we had a socially distanced coffee morning on 24 June, 2021 with cakes, bakes and savouries made by staff, including red velvet cookies, cupcakes, summertime chia pudding, bara brith and salted caramel brownies.
The coffee morning raised £235 for the charity.
EffecTech has sponsored a number of children’s football teams, including Barrow Town and Quorn FC, and has been the kit sponsor for the local Uttoxeter rugby team for boys aged 17 or under.
EffecTech sponsored the 2017 JCB Mud Run and company staff have participated in the race several times.
EffecTech has, for the past two years, held a Macmillan coffee morning to raise money for cancer research. Organised by Technical Sales Specialist, Shelly Spooner, the company raised £211!
