Ecofirst Partnership with School in a Bag
Ecofirst support local charity with referral campaign
Yeovil based renewable energy installer Ecofirst have nominated local charity Piers Simon Appeal and their School in a Bag initiative their charity for 2012. Ecofirst have pledged to donate £100 to School in a Bag every time an Ecofirst customer refers a friend and that friend installs a Solar Photovoltaic or Wood Biomass system for their home. They hope to donate £10,000 by next year.
Ecofirst Managing Director Tim Rook commented, “We’re a Yeovil based business and the whole team felt it was important that our referral campaign benefited a local charity that works with schools in the local community and has a wider global environmental and social impact. We’re a renewable energy company that supports sustainability, we wanted to make a difference to the future of the vulnerable and disaster affected children School in a Bag works with. We’ve set ourselves the target of raising £10,000 for School in a Bag in 2012 .”
School in a Bag provide SchoolBags filled with essential stationary equipment and learning resources to poor, orphan, vulnerable and disaster affected children throughout the world. So far they have delivered 34,500 SchoolBags to children in areas of Africa and Asia. Charity Liaison Officer, Luke Simon is thrilled to have Ecofirst on board for 2012, “I’m delighted that Ecofirst have chosen to partner with School in a Bag during 2012. The fund raising Ecofirst carry out will be helping to change the future for needy children– we are looking forward to working with them to achieve their fund raising goals.”
The ambitious pledge from Ecofirst will mean the team will not only be experts in fitting solar panels, but experts at packing the 667 SchoolBags they hope to fund!
