Our core values also display a commitment to minimising our environmental impact. As part of this commitment we aim to recycle where possible and this includes giving our redundant computer hardware to CARE – Collecting and Recycling Ecologically. The charity send the units to Ghana where they are reused; providing computers for schools and colleges to help children gain the ICT skills that will be essential to building a better future.
Other recycling efforts include giving suitable material off cuts to charities and schools.
Parafix were sponsors of the Atlantic Splash charity fundraising challenge. The fundraisers were a team of five ordinary men taking on a challenging row across the Atlantic. They are experienced coastal rowers, looking to raise funds in excess of £200,000, to fund their costs and to be distributed equally between their four chosen charities. These are the Great Ormond Street Hospital, the Tall Ships Youth Trust, the British Heart Foundation and the Macular Society.
