London Gatwick Airport has announced that it is seeking a new charity partner, with the successful applicant set to secure a unique opportunity to increase its profile and fundraising possibilities.
The partnership will last for two years and registered local charities are encouraged to apply here before the deadline of November 15, 2019.
The airport will choose the charity that can best improve the lives of local people through the partnership, with applicants also assessed on what the charity wants to achieve from the new relationship, what the money raised will go toward, and why it will be a good ‘fit’ with Gatwick and its employees.
Gatwick has three charity partners at any one time, which it works with to raise funds over the longer term – two local and one airport-based charity. Gatwick’s current ongoing charities are Gatwick TravelCare and Air Ambulance Kent Surrey Sussex, with Gatwick’s work with St Catherine’s Hospice coming to an end in April 2020 after a double term of four years.
