Ayrshire Hospice is proud to be named Spirit AeroSystems’ nominated charity partner for 2018-2020.

Spirit AeroSystems select a charity partner every two years and recently circulated a survey to all of their employees to help choosea new charity that would benefit from the company’s support  over the next two years.  The employees voted in favour of  Ayrshire Hospice

Michelle McNeil, Communications Manager at Spirit AeroSystems said “We’re delighted to be raising funds to support Ayrshire Hospice, which is a charity close to our employees’ hearts. We’ll be working hard throughout the partnership to raise as much as we can for this deserving cause”.

On 23rd February 2018 Spirit AeroSystems held their annual Team Spirit Charity Burns Supper and raised an impressive £38,360 in aid of the local charity at this very early stage of the partnership.

Ron Swanson, Assistant Fundraising Manager at the Ayrshire Hospice said “We are absolutely delighted that Spirit AeroSystems has selected us as their chosen charity partner for the next two years and it’s particularly meaningful as the hospice has been chosen by their employees.  To raise over £38,000 at their first event in aid of the hospice is truly incredible and every penny raised during the partnership will be gratefully received by everyone at the hospice.  We very much look forward to working with Michelle and the team at Spirit AeroSystems.”
