AWE presentation to Naomi House

AWE has further strengthened its ties with a popular local charity through an additional donation and several supermarket carrier bags of stamps.

AWE has given £550 to Naomi House, based near Winchester. The charity provides support to children and young adults with life-limiting conditions. The stamps are being collected by the charity so they can be sold on the by the kilo to collectors hoping to find rare stamp.

The charity needs support so it can continue to provide respite breaks, emergency support, hospice at home care and family support free of charge to local families.

AWE was also recognised recently at a special awards evening hosted by the charity, and was nominated as an Outstanding Long Term Supporter.

Fiona Hansford, Corporate Fundraiser for the charity, said: “AWE has supported us since 1998 and since then they have raised more than £30,000 in many different ways. Their continuing support is invaluable to us and we wanted to recognise and thank them for this at our recent awards evening.”

Michele Maidment, AWE’s Community Committee secretary, said: “We are delighted to be able to offer continued support to Naomi House and it is a popular charity with our staff and the local community.”

 

Notes to Editors

1.     AWE plays a crucial role in national defence by providing and maintaining warheads for Trident, the UK's nuclear deterrent.

2.     AWE is contracted to the Ministry of Defence (MOD) through a Government-owned Contractor Operated (GOCO) arrangement. Whilst our sites and facilities remain in government ownership, their management, day to day operations, and the maintenance of the nuclear stockpile is contracted to a private company AWE Management Limited (AWE ML). AWE ML is a consortium comprising three equal partners: Serco Group plc, the Lockheed Martin Corporation and Jacobs Engineering Group.
