Charity Event 2019

In early November, AFD Software hosted its 2019 charity evening at Babbages, the events venue located at Mountain View Innovation Centre in the Isle of Man.

All of the team and Directors at AFD nominate charities of their choice to receive a donation. Working for AFD is described as “more than just a job”. Having the knowledge that their efforts at work directly contribute to the relief of suffering around the world is a wonderful incentive for the team to continually work hard and make a difference in their respective roles.

The event celebrated donations totalling £1,000,000 to over 70 charities covering medical research, international aid and development and poverty relief. Representatives from many of the charities were in attendance to share in this special evening and to hear from some of the charities directly about how the donations will be used.

Three presentations were delivered on the night from The Faraday Institute for Science and Religion which teaches how strongly faith and science are connected, Live at Home, an Isle of Man charity who assist elderly people in particular to live with dignity in their own homes, and Hope for Justice – a UK charity who are working to stamp out Human Slavery. Three very different subjects, but each inspired those present to continue to work hard and deliver tangible results to those in need.

All of the charities nominated and the work they perform can be seen here.
