2012 a great year for ABTA LifeLine
Trudie Drake -
2012 has been a very busy year for ABTA LifeLine having held its first dinner and charity week, participated in the London 10k run, launched a ‘back to work’ programme and attended many industry events raising funds.
The brand was refreshed, the website re-launched , and a new animated film was created showing the different ways that ABTA LifeLine can help people in the industry. It's profile in the industry has never been higher.
One of our aims for 2013 includes reaching many more colleagues and their families that need help in the travel industry. We intend to work closely with our Members to help promote the benefits of ABTA LifeLine to their staff.
Another key aim is to continue to raise the funds needed to help many more people in need. We want to encourage many more ABTA members to join our £1 per employee appeal no matter how big or small the company. If all ABTA Members contributed to the appeal, all the donations added up together would make a significance difference to the charity and the lives of the people supported.
Finally, we have an exciting year ahead. We are delighted to be the charity partner at some of the travel industry’s key events in 2013 such as the Agent Achievement Awards in April, the Brit Awards in June and The Travel Convention in October. We will also be holding our own events including our annual charity dinner and The Big Charity Week in September 2013.
The Trustees and I would like to thank everyone who has supported ABTA LifeLine over the last year, and we very much look forward to your continued support in 2013.
Wishing you a very merry Christmas and happy New Year.
