YES Energy Solutions' Community Interest Activities Feb 20, 2024

As a Community Interest Company, we are committed to reinvesting in the areas in which we work and the last few years have been our largest yet.

Thanks to the commitment and dedication of our team we have been able to contribute more than ever before and support many communities through events and funding.

Fundraising

Aid for Ukraine


The effects of the Russo-Ukranian War have been felt worldwide since Russia’s invasion in February 2022.


In the months following the outbreak, staff brought in a variety of medical supplies, toiletries, food and equipment which was donated to Halifax Ukrainian Club to be distributed to those fleeing the conflict.

Five brave employees opted to take on a rock-climbing challenge, including a competition to see who could reach the top of a 70-foot-high wall all in support of Yorkshire Childrens Trust.


They surpassed £1,000 in sponsors.


Colour run

We extended our charity support to Forget Me Not by taking part in a colour run raising over £250 for the children’s hospice.

Covered in powder paint by the end of the course, 12 of our team took part in the event.
