Donating to Charity

A number of our Member organisations have organised fundraising activities such as Silicone Engineering who have been gathering donations to help those displaced by the war and staff at HITEK Electronic Materials who held a cake sale to raise money which was quadrupled by the company. We will share these activities on social media and in our Member e-newsletter.
