This September Napit held a summer charity event for all staff and business partners from Napit Insurance to raise money for member Matt Carter.
Matt Carter, an Electrician from Bakewell, fell from a ladder while on a job in December last year. The fall was only five feet, but he landed on his head causing life changing injuries.
Since the accident Mr Carter’s family and friends have had to fight for him to receive the care he needs. He is unable to live at home and is now at a rehabilitation center, Steps in Sheffield. Mr Carter ‘s wife and children visit often, but family life will never be the same again.
The event named ‘don’t worry, be hippie’ started off with a yoga team building session to get all the Napit team connected and in high spirits before the fundraising games and activities began.
Staff paid a small fee to take part in activities as well as getting a chance to win on the Tombola and raffle. Napit staff raised £561.70 on the day, with all proceeds going to Mr Carter and his family.
Mike Andrews, Napit Group chief executive, said: “There is always an astounding effort from staff at Napit when fundraising for charity. This year was no exception and was particularly important to us as we are helping one of our own.
“Matt Carter has been a NAPIT member for seven years and we were all moved to hear about his unfortunate accident at work. We couldn’t think of a more worthy cause to raise money for this summer and wish Matt a speedy recovery.”
There has been mixed reaction to the Government's long-awaited Heat and Buildings Strategy from heating industry bodies.
The Strategy has unveiled phased out dates for the installation of fossil fuel heating, increased funding support for households purchasing heat pumps, and the rebalancing of environmental levies on electricity.
