ISS helps to service the nation's hearts

ISS Facility Services has announced that the British Heart Foundation (BHF) has been elected as its charity of the year for 2010. The unanimous decision means that ISS will aim to raise thousands of pounds through staff and customer fundraising over the next year.

This is the first time ISS has entered into a national charity fundraising relationship which aims to bring together the various ISS divisions to work more closely towards a common goal - beating heart disease together.

Henrik Andersen, CEO of ISS, said: “This partnership is a fantastic opportunity to raise vital funds for the BHF but it will also give ISS employees the opportunity to learn more about their own heart health and how to lead a healthy lifestyle through the education campaigns run by the British Heart Foundation. Heart disease touches the lives of many people and we are delighted to be able to offer our support.”

The relationship will involve an intensive fundraising campaign where employees from all ISS divisions will be encouraged to work together and take part in various fundraising events, initiatives and activities including ‘Wear Red Day’ for National Heart Month and an all staff ‘Heart Health Quiz’.

Celine Gomez, head of account management at the British Heart Foundation, said: “We are delighted to have the support of staff at ISS. It’s great to see that so many employees have already taken the charity to heart and are looking forward to helping raise much needed funds for us during the partnership. This fundraising relationship will play an important role in raising awareness of heart disease and emphasizing the benefits of leading a healthier lifestyle.”
