Flight Logistics – A company with a heart
Ever mindful of our social responsibilities, we’ve supported many organisations with their charitable causes over the years. As well as donating money and our time, we have provided services from managing collections and deliveries of all kinds (including packing and shipment of artwork through our ShipArtTM services), to promoting their good work across our social channels and client base. This article gives us the opportunity to do the latter again (please see list below).
Whether it’s helping someone overcome the loss of a loved one or supporting educational programs for women and girls in economically deprived areas of the world, we are committed to do our bit to help people, animals and the environment.
The following are just some of the charities and causes we’ve supported in recent months, please click on the headers to link to their stories and how we helped:
