Partnering with HIOWAA: Astute’s charity of the year

At Astute, we believe in making a difference not just in the professional world but also within our community.

This year, we are thrilled to announce our partnership with the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance (HIOWAA) as our Charity of the Year 2024.

The decision was made via a company-wide vote that reflects our commitment to supporting vital causes.

Why Astute chose to support HIOWAA

Sam Bradshaw, Head of People at Astute, said, “We’re so pleased to be working with such an incredible charity following our company-wide vote for Charity of the Year 2024.

“Having staff with a personal connection to HIOWAA means that we understand the support they give to those in life-threatening situations.

“We are fully committed to achieving whatever we can to raise much-needed funds this year.”

HIOWAA is an essential service, providing rapid medical interventions to those in urgent need across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

Since its foundation in 2007, the charity has been at the forefront of saving lives, offering an advanced critical care team accessible by air ambulance 365 days a year.

Their Airbus H135 helicopter, equipped with state-of-the-art medical equipment, allows the critical care team to deliver life-saving treatments quickly and efficiently, often in situations where every second counts.

The charity’s reliance on community donations and support highlights the importance of our commitment.

Running such a high-calibre service comes with significant costs, yet HIOWAA ensures that its life-saving services are offered free of charge.

This year, Astute is dedicated to supporting HIOWAA through various fundraising efforts, aiming to contribute significantly to the charity’s mission of saving lives.

We’re excited to engage with HIOWAA’s community and educational programs, which raise awareness about the importance of air ambulance services and teach life-saving skills.

Through these initiatives, we hope to foster a deeper connection between Astute employees and the critical work HIOWAA performs every day.

We encourage everyone to join us in supporting the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance.

Whether through donations, participating in fundraising events, or volunteering, your contributions will help ensure that HIOWAA can continue their life-saving work.

Together, we can make a significant impact and support those in their most critical times of need.

This partnership with HIOWAA is not just about raising funds; it’s a testament to our values at Astute, showcasing our commitment to supporting the communities we live and work in.

We look forward to a year of meaningful engagement, fundraising, and support for the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance, a charity that touches the lives of many and embodies the spirit of hope and community assistance.
