“BE STRONG. BE BRAVE and GO BEYOND.” Cristiano Ronaldo
If you are a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo then we have an opportunity for you!
Following our recent fundraising events in aid of the Essex Police Retired Dogs Fund, the first of which was at the Check-in @ Stansted Business Expo back in June and more recently the first ever SACC Charity Shield Sports Event last week (which was won by “Big Buns and Little Guns” - Stansted Airport’s Fire & Rescue service), we now have one final leg of our campaign for 2019 and are asking YOU to get involved and help us raised just a bit more for this well deserving charity.
It is time to give something back to those courageous K9 officers who have looked after us in and around Essex.
We’re offering you a chance to win an authentic signature of Cristiano Ronaldo – Juventus FC which was kindly donated by Backdrop Promotions at our recent Check-in @ Stansted business expo.
We are currently running a silent auction to help raise money for the charity. Bidding is open with a minimum starting bid of £100. The auction closes on Friday 30th August 2019 (so get in quick) and the lucky winner will be notified on Monday 2nd September. Buyer collects.
As Ronaldo says – these dogs have to be strong, brave and go beyond!
Come and join in the fun and frolics of SACCs Old School Sports Day – including egg-and-spoon and three-legged races – in support of Essex Police Dogs, with a chance to win the 2019 Charity Shield (or the wooden spoon!) for your firm or organisation.
The event (ticket only), takes place at Thremall Park, Start Hill on Wednesday 14 August will be a great opportunity to network and make new connections with fellow professionals over a cool drink and a bite from the barbeque.
The sports will be refereed by Police Dogs Buddy and Holly and their handlers PC Mark Webster and PC Hayley Peek. There will also be a live demo by the Essex Police Dog Unit who’ll be bringing along current K9 officers to show you how they chase and catch villains – v olunteers anyone?
Julie Budden, Chair of the Stansted Chamber of Commerce says “This is a charity I am extremely fond of. I personally get to know the working dogs and the vital role they and their handlers play in keeping our airport, staff and airport safe, as well as out in the Essex community. I have no doubt that everyone who buys a ticket will have a great afternoon!”

London Stansted has officially opened its first multi-storey car park this week, the latest phase in its transformation project.
The 2,700 space, six-storey car park is located within a short walking distance of the terminal and boosts the number of short-stay car parking spaces available at the airport to more than 7,000.
Paul Willis, Business Change Director for the London Stansted Transformation Project, said:
“We’re investing millions to improve facilities at London Stansted and the opening of our new multi-storey car park is another stepping stone on the road to transforming the experience for the millions of passengers travelling through the airport.
“We want Stansted to be the airport of choice for passengers from across the region and whilst we have a fantastic public transport record with over 50% of passengers using coach, bus or train to get to and from the airport, we also want to ensure those who need to arrive by car or park at the airport have convenient options to suit all budgets.”
BAM Construction was the main contractor on the project. Brian Connor, BAM’s Construction Director, said:
“It’s been a very successful exercise in collaborative working. We spent a year in pre-construction with Stansted examining the right model to procure and build this scheme, choosing a system approach from Huber. We’ve needed to manage the work around their live airport environment and ensure everybody’s safety during thousands of vehicle movements across a passenger route to the terminal. I’m delighted that the result is proving to be so satisfactory.”
The multi-story car park was the focus of a large-scale emergency exercise on 21 June. More than 60 staff and volunteers from the airport and emergency services tested the response to how the airport would tackle an emergency situation inside the car park ahead of its opening.
The London Stansted Airport Transformation Project is an extensive programme of work that will enable the airport to make best use of its existing runway capacity and create greater choice and better service for passengers.
