Making a difference.

At Bistech, we believe in giving back. That’s why we set up the Bistech Community Fund.

Our people have always actively fundraised for a diverse range of charities and good causes. So, every year we give every employee the opportunity to apply for significant sponsorship towards a fundraising challenge of their choice. We see this as a small way for us to give back to those who work so hard for us, as well as helping the wider community.

Over the years, the charities we’ve supported include:

2019 stories.

Swimming to success

Completing his first charity fundraiser for this year, Andy took on a tough 2-mile swim across the Humber Estuary - one of the most unpredictable stretches of water in the world. Living close by, Andy’s only too aware of the hard work and dedication that the Humber Rescue team provide, inspiring him to get involved and wanting to give something back. Whilst the extremely strong currents created an extra challenge on the day, he looks as fresh as a daisy coming out the other side. Well done Andy, what a great cause!

A tough challenge for charity

Always willing to get stuck in, Neil Rose took on the infamous Tough Mudder obstacle course in August, in memory of a dear colleague. Raising money for CALM, the 11-mile course, with 25 obstacles, put him through his paces. But as you can see, he came out smiling. A fun event, and all for a good cause. Well done Neil.

And Neil wasn't the only Bistech team member to tackle the course. After overcoming a double hip and spine surgery, Scott Hutchings also conquered Tough Mudder in support of his chosen charity, LEAF - Leukaemia Educating and Fundraising. Not letting his previous injuries get in the way, Scott is planning to repeat it all next year. We can't wait to see you take on the challenge again, Scott.

Going the extra mile

Our team love a challenge. And avid cyclist, Scott Delahunty, is a perfect example. Cycling the length of the UK, alongside scaling the three national peaks (Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis), Scott completed the two-week challenge all in aid of cancer research and support. Covering over 100 miles a day, it really was an impressive feat. Massive congratulations Scott.

A marathon success

In April this year, keen runner, Jonathan Kirkham, took on the London Marathon, raising funds for his chosen charity, MacMillan Cancer Support. After months of demanding training, the hard work paid off and he made it look a breeze. Congratulations Jon, an amazing achievement for a deserving cause.
