Highway maintenance is one of the key services SWH provides across the region. This can range from winter maintenance, drainage improvements, road marking, excavation and traffic management.
SWH began supporting Devon Air Ambulance Trust (DAAT) in 2010 after asking staff to vote for a preferred charity. We get inundated with requests for support from charities, and while we help where we can, we felt it was important to have a clear attachment to one that our staff believe in.
Very often we attend the scene of accidents along Devon’s roads and motorways and often work closely with DAAT. We see their work first hand and understand how important it is to ensure people receive the right treatment as swiftly as possible; the role they play in this is absolutely vital.
DAAT’s work resonates with our staff whose support for them is unequivocal. More than 600 employees voted resoundingly in favour of electing them as our charity of choice and we are proud to support the great work that they do.
At Christmas SWH elected to support DAAT by providing a donation in exchange for using one of their e-card designs to send to colleagues and clients. We believe the benefits are twofold; it helps to reduce unnecessary paper wastage and also helps support a local charity which provides a valuable service.
