OPAL Services is delighted to announce that we have been awarded £10,000 in funding from the INEOS Community Fund. The money will be put to good use and will help us continue to support older people in rural west Cheshire through the disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic and plan new developments to ensure our recovery into 2021.
The £1M INEOS Community Fund was established by INEOS Chairman Sir Jim Ratcliffe in March 2020 in tandem with the company’s COVID-19 “Hands On” campaign, which set up new production lines to provide millions of bottles of free hand sanitiser per month to hospitals and frontline healthcare. The fund enables INEOS sites across the world to support the charitable organisations doing vital work in their local communities at this particularly difficult time.
Kayleigh Nichols, Group Human Resources Manager at INEOS Enterprises said: “OPAL Services is a wonderful initiative for our older people. Its inspiring volunteers make a huge different at the heart of their community, offering the opportunity for many to experience, fun, enjoyment and companionship. We are delighted that we can help the organisation support the needs of local people in these difficult times.”
