Richard Is Amara’s Chief Financial Officer and has been with us for nearly a year now so it is high time he gets a formal welcome on the Amara Blog! A keen baker and photographer, we drag Richard away from the finance office for a quick catch up interview…
A handful of Amara’s finest have signed up to do something slightly crazy – wing walking, all in the name of charity! Brave volunteering wing walkers Harriet, Nicola, Ollie and Tom have all decided this exhilarating challenge is one that has to be on their bucket list and with the date scheduled for the end of July, it’s time to get fundraising. The J’s Hospice is a charity close to Amara and they give amazing support to 16-40 year olds with life limiting and life threatening conditions. Providing tailored nursing, respite, advice and emotional care in the comfort of their own homes the Amara team are determined to raise a good amount of money to help the local charity.
The wing walk will see the four take to the skies on a Stearman biplane after a 90 minute briefing from the Aerobatic Tactics team. Although we might not be seeing too many stunts on a first fly, it is sure to be exhilarating and we thought it only best to get to know the team a little bit better before the big day…
Friday saw Red Nose Day hit the Amara offices. The day promised a lot of red clothes, a day-long raffle and money being raised for such a worthy cause and it did not disappoint. With each staff member paying £1 to don the colour, every team went to a great effort to wear something red, from an impractical red nose, to hair pieces, red nails and t-shirts, ensuring the office got a red make over for the day.
