has donated £500 to a charity, Max’s Rescue Ranger Fund
, set up in memory of an employee’s son.
Every Christmas, Enercon - the global leader in induction cap sealing – makes a donation to a charity chosen by its staff.
This year staff opted to support Max’s Rescue Ranger Fund, set up in memory of nine-year-old Max Ledger, who tragically passed away on February 6, 2013.
Max was the son of Angela Ledger, who has worked for Enercon for the past 18 years.
Since Max’s death, Angela and husband Andy, have been keeping his memory alive by raising over £10,000 for animal charities.
This year they set up Max’s Rescue Ranger Fund in association with the non-profit organisation REST
(Rare & Endangered Species Trust).
Based in Africa, the charity cares and looks after animals in need, in the hope of releasing them back into the wild – an act which Max did himself many times in his short-lived life.
So this year, instead of buying and posting Christmas cards to friends, colleagues and customers around the world, Enercon will be sending out an animated Christmas card and has donated the £500 budget to Max’s Rescue Rangers.
Chairman Richard Bull said: “Everyone at Enercon knew and loved Max. We are immensely proud of what Angela and Andy have done in his memory and we are delighted to be able to help by making this donation.”
So far Max’s fund has helped purchase a new vehicle which enables the charity to reach far and remote areas to help even more animals in need.
