CSR or Corporate Social Responsibility is paramount within CEA (Cranes and Equipment Asia Co., Ltd). Since the company’s inception in 2000 CEA has consistently invested in giving back to the community that surrounds it and Children’s day 2014 was another great opportunity to do so. A member of the CEA team had brought it to attention that a local school was holding Children’s Day on Thursday 9th of January and asked if they could support.
The decision was unanimously approved. CEA agreed it would give five lucky children a one year scholarship and give away stationery sets and ice cream on the day of the event.
Yard Manager David Johnson hands out scholarships to the students.
Wat Mai Nern Payom School is located just two minutes’ drive form CEA Headquarters in Ban Ao Udom, Sriracha, and houses over 500 children. It is an integral part of the Ban Ao-Udom community.
A team of CEA volunteers led by QC Manager Krittapas were in attendance to supply free ice cream to all the children, as it was such a hot day this soon became the most popular attraction! After the traditional Thai dancing, CEA Yard Manager David Johnson presented one year scholarships to the five lucky children. This was met with rapturous applause by fellow pupils and parents alike. The children then partied on well into the afternoon full of energy thanks to CEA’s ice cream!
Cold ice cream on a hot day – what could be better?
