World Parkinson’s Awareness Day

On Monday 11th April, CareFlex will join Parkinson’s communities worldwide to mark the 2022 awareness campaign. Parkinson’s UK has declared that not enough people understand the experience of living with Parkinson’s disease. People don’t know it’s a serious condition; they don’t realise that treatments are limited and there is no cure.

“It’s time to start the conversation. It’s time to talk about Parkinson’s.”

Helapet Donates Microscope To Local School

During a regular tour of our manufacturing facility to identify ways to improve efficiencies as part of the 5S policy, the microscope was spotted as an unused item that had been languishing in the corner following introduction of more advanced inspection techniques.

In order to make way for more efficient processes, it was decided to remove the unit and find another owner in a drive to be more environmentally aware.

Helapet has a strong ethos of giving back to its local community so went in search of a worthy school to receive the microscope and were pleased to discover local middle school, Houghton Regis Academy, would accept and make use of it

Helapet Charity Giving

During the run up to Christmas, what should be the most joyous time of year can be one of the hardest. So, while most companies purchase greeting cards to wish their customers great joy, we sent our customers personal and digital wishes of joy for the Christmas season and offered the money that would have been used on printed greeting cards to a charity that is close to our team’s hearts.

At Christmas 2021, we donated to the Cynthia Spencer Hospice in Northampton.

It is important to Helapet that we give back to the community where we belong: 2021 saw Cynthia Spencer Hospice play an important role in one of our colleague’s lives and we wanted to be able to give our thanks for the Hospice’s amazing work.
