Team Cobham bear up for Legacy Week
Cobham has raised $3750 during Legacy Week 2021, through a fundraising morning tea and the sale of merchandise.
Legacy is a not-for-profit organisation that looks after families impacted by the injury or death of a family member during or after their defence force service. Legacy currently cares for 52,000 people throughout Australia, including 1,845 children and disabled dependants.
This year, a special guest attended to bring some cheer to the morning tea event. The Legacy Royal Australian Air Force bear enjoyed meeting and greeting the Adelaide Cobham team.
Cobham CEO John Boag said he was proud of the team for coming together to support Legacy once again.
“We have a substantial veteran workforce at Cobham and we recognise the important work that Legacy does supporting the families of veterans.”
“Legacy Week was a great opportunity for our Adelaide employees to come together to show their support for this work.”
Cobham employee and Legatee, Simon Ford, said COVID restrictions had impacted fundraising initiatives over the past two years, meaning events like this are critical to keeping Legacy initiatives possible.
“I am proud to work with such a great group of people who are always willing to throw their support behind Legacy and what it stands for” Simon said.
