Every year at our annual SITA Sales Kick Off conference we try to give back to the city that hosts us. This year we organized a collection for the Berlin City Mission, asking participants to bring a donation along with them to the conference. And here is the result:  six boxes of new clothes, toiletries, food and other essentials, plus a cash donation from SITA of 1,000 EUR (US$1075). What a great start to the year!


Seven SITA runners took part in the fifth annual Budapest Airport / Runway Run, a unique charity event that takes place on a closed runway. It is attended by more than 1,000 people from the aerospace industry, as well as Hungarian public figures and well-known athletes. The run raises funds for the Suhanj! Foundation, a charity supporting disabled children in the community.


Our Letterkenny VIVA team hosted a hugely successful table quiz, raffle, and disco in aid of the Donegal Youth Service. Twenty four teams of four turned up on the night and a great time was had by all. The result: 1900 EUR (US $2243) for the charity's work supporting teens, youth clubs and related projects around the county.

On 19 May 2017, a group of 26 SITA Letterkenny employees undertook a 10-hour bag pack in the local Tesco supermarket to raise funds for “A Walk for Maeve”. This charity raises funds for St Luke’s Oakland Lodge and the Buncrana Community Nursing Unit. In a fantastic example of SITA employees giving their time and energy to help promote worthy charities and causes, the group raised an amazing 1,575 EUR (US$1,775).


The World's Biggest Coffee Morning is an annual treat for SITA people based in London. This year two of our London locations pulled together and raised over 656 GBP (US $872) for Macmillan Cancer Support. A huge thanks to the the organizers, volunteers, bakers and customers who made this much anticipated social and charitable event a success.

For the third year in a row, SITA Londoners have had the enormous pleasure to take part in Langar Week. It is a Sikh tradition of free food for all and a reminder of the joy of sharing and empathy for the less fortunate. SITA volunteers served a sumptuous vegetarian lunch buffet of paneer masala, samosas, bhajis, soft drinks, fruit and snacks. Though the food was free, diners generously contributed over 375 GBP (US $490) in spontaneous cash donations to support the effort.

A group of SITA London employees took volunteer time out during the summer to lend Hillingdon Foodbank a helping hand. The team had a busy day, dating, sorting and storing donated food as well as packing food parcels for local people in crisis.

On 21 June 2017, a team of eight mighty volunteers from London Compass Centre headed out to Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Primary School in nearby Staines, Middlesex. Their mission: transform the school's somewhat neglected garden into a verdant oasis. And that's just what they did. The day's work included creating a flowerbed along the perimeter fence, planting shrubs and trees, assembling a small garden shed, general weeding and helping the pupils to plant herbs in a raised bed. The results are absolutely flourishing. 


On 8 October SITA Prague hosted a day of breast cancer fundraising and awareness campaigning in conjunction with local charity Mammahelp. They raised a total of 12,500 CZK (US $575) for research and patient support. Activities included three preventive breast cancer lectures (one exclusively for men) and a charity sale of toys and goods manufactured by patients who participate in Mammahelp therapy programs.


On 13 June 2017 a group of Rome office employees joined a Community of Sant'Egidio distribution of food to the homeless at Stazione Termini, the main railway hub in Rome. For the volunteers it was a very rewarding evening, paid back in full by warm smiles and thank yous. Sandwiches, cakes and  fruit were distributed to nearly 200 people in the Termini premises by the end of the night.

In June 2017, for the third year in a row, our Rome office joined in the Susan G Komen Race for the Cure 1K walk and 5K run, raising EUR 310 (US$355) and fielding 18 runners. The Susan G Komen Race for the Cure series of 5K runs and fitness walks raises significant funds and awareness for the breast cancer movement, celebrates breast cancer survivors and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease.
