Supporting the NHS during the COVID-19 pandemic

Employees of Racal Acoustics have been supporting the NHS during the pandemic.  Donations made by employees, and matched by Racal, have provided meals catered by Tamu Tamu to NHS Trust staff. 

As well as supporting the NHS, half of our employees donations will go to Racal’s local chosen charity St Luke’s Hospice, who provide care for people whose illnesses are no longer curable, enabling them to achieve the best possible quality of life.

Our risk assessment will be reviewed on an ongoing basis so that we are up to date with the latest safety advice, and following the latest guidelines.
