CAP Gemini continue amazing support for MAA


Last year saw the Accelerated Development Academy (ADA) project team from CAP Gemini present a cheque for £9,000 to Midlands Air Ambulance Charity. The team at CAP Gemini were tasked with working with the Assets, Charities and Employees (ACE) programme and over the last twelve months developed a dedicated portal site and campaign to promote and sell old kit to employees for the Charity.


Working with the Asset Management team to cleanse the kit of secure data; ADA matched machines to employees who in turn made a donation to the chosen Charity for 2011 – Midlands Air Ambulance Charity. Lou Hosker, Lead Sponsor for the ADA programme says, “The ACE programme is a fantastic way to support local charities and with the focus of the ADA team combined with the generosity of Aspire employees, we have raised over £9,000 to support the work of Midlands Air Ambulance.


Changes to the Fundraising Team


Jackie Martin who has been with the charity for 17 years has decided to retire to spend more time with her new grand daughter.


Jackie has witnessed huge changes to the Charity and has also been a great supporter to our cause and all her colleagues. Hanna Sebright CEO said “Jackie has been there at almost every step of the way, she will be sorely missed by everyone. Jackie’s contribution cannot be underestimated, she has formed a vital part of what makes MAA so special, I would like to personally thank her and wish her a very busy retirement no doubt”


After nearly 3 years working with MAA, Corporate Fundraising Manager Stef Langford-Brown recently moved on from the Charity to focus her time developing the family run business.
