Last year our friends at BAM Construct UK let us know they were going to be taking part in a sponsored cycle ride from Vietnam to Cambodia in November 2011 to help support Acorns Children’s Hospice. We were more than happy to sponsor them as it is such a good cause giving support and care to over 600 local life limited children and their families!
BAM Construct UK, with help from their sponsors including Protec International Ltd, managed to raise just over £115,000 which is an extraordinary feat.
Following on from our blog post a few weeks ago about raising money for the Star School in Kenya, Protec are delighted to announce that we’ve helped raise £185 for the school children of Star School in Kenya.
It was a fantastic effort by all who have contributed to this amazing cause.
We are very proud of our continuing charity work at Protec. We have helped Taylor Wimpey raise money for the COINS charity, helped sponsor the PAX Children’s Home in Hungary, and with an upcoming “Tea for the Two Bees” charity event we’ll be making cakes to help raise money for Breakthrough Breast Cancer and the Birdhouse Fund (blog post coming soon!).
This time around we’ve been helping a customer raise money for their Race for Life event for the Cancer Charity. Over 2,500 people took part in the event, and we helped our customer raise £1,300.

We’re extremely proud to have raised over £45,000 (and counting) alongisde Taylor Wimpey at the recent 3 Peaks Challenge, raising money for the COINS Foundation.
We have received this letter from Taylor Wimpey which we think details the achievement quite well:
Re: 3 Peaks Challenge Charity Event
As you know, last month nine of us agreed (anively) to take part in the 3 Peaks Challenge, in an attempt to raise as much money as we could for the COINS Foundation who, in partnership with Habitat for Humanity, are committed to build 50 homes in sub-Saharan Africa; Kenya, Mozambique, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and, most recently, Haiti, as well as funding school and water projects in the same areas.
Through the most generous donations and pledges from you and our Business Contacts, our two Director Teams managed to secure a whopping £44,444.04 (and still rising) which took us to the top of the fund raising leader-board in style, and the faster of our two teams also managed to finish in an amazing (to us and everyone else) 6th place out of 43!

Protec annual drive for collection for the PAX Children’s Home in Hungary has began!
Since 2002 Protec provides donation of computers, money, children’s clothes, toys and books to the facility not only housing but also educating and providing support to several hundred children, including mentally handicapped children and their families.
