EDM donates £5k to Mayor Andy Burnham Homeless Fund

Manchester, UK. EDM, a leading global provider of training simulators to the civil aviation and defence sectors, announced today that it has donated £5000 to the Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham’s Homelessness Fund.

Mayor Burnham launched the fund in June this year as part of his mayoral election pledge to end rough sleeping in Greater Manchester by 2020. After donating 15% of his own salary to the fund and encouraging donations from individuals and companies, the Mayor is now actively inviting community and voluntary organisations established to help homeless people to apply for money to help tackle the issue.

Tony Bermingham, Managing Director of EDM, handed over the cheque for £5000 to the Mayor last month whilst he was visiting the company to formally open its new £1.3m 20,000 square feet manufacturing facility.

“As a proud and long-standing member of the Greater Manchester business community, we’re passionate about supporting worthy local causes,” said Mr Bermingham. “We’ve been supporting various Manchester based charities for many years now and when we read about the Mayor’s homeless initiative we felt strongly that this was another very worthwhile cause we should help with.”

Andy Burnham, Mayor of Greater Manchester said: “We’re lucky in Greater Manchester to have businesses like EDM who recognise the need to give back to our communities. Their donation to the Mayor’s Homelessness Fund is incredibly generous and will go directly to supporting people who need help.

“I would encourage other businesses to support and join our mission to put a roof over every head in Greater Manchester by 2020.”
