Annodata actively encourage their employees’ involvement in charitable campaigns and initiatives as a route to making practical, meaningful contributions to society.
Each year Tim and Andrew Harman (Joint M.Ds) choose a number of charities and pledge a significant contribution both financially and with their personal time. From climbing Kilimanjaro to sky-diving, the Annodata team is encouraged to make a difference in whatever way they are able.
This year Annodata is supporting two charities; Scannappeal, which benefits a number of the Home Counties hospitals and The British Legion, who serve members of the Armed Forces, ex-Service men and women (veterans), their families and dependents, all year-round.
Scannappeal raises funds to purchase life-saving equipment for Amersham, Stoke Mandeville and Wycombe Hospitals which serve people living in Buckinghamshire and neighbouring parts of Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Berkshire and Oxfordshire. Every 10 minutes a patient in the local area is diagnosed or treated with equipment funded by Scannappeal.
On June 14th, Annodata were the headline sponsor for the Scannappeal Golf Tournament held at the prestigious Buckinghamshire Club in Denham. The Bucks Club was originally founded by former European tour player and Ryder Cup Captain, John Jacobs OBE. In this Silver Jubilee year, ITV and BBC sports presenter Steve Rider provided the after dinner entertainment.
On 30th August, a team of ‘Annodata Heroes’ - Andrew Harman, Steve Luff, Monique Rey, Mark Patterson, Karl Brown and Patrick Taylor - will compete in the London to Paris bike ride, hoping to raise £40,000 for The British Legion. The London to Paris bike ride is an amazing charity challenge starting from the UK's capital, through the English countryside, over to rural France and finally on to the heart of Paris, completing the journey underneath the Eiffel Tower.
The Royal British Legion is the UK's leading Armed Forces charity. They provide practical, emotional and financial support to all members of the British Armed Forces past and present, and their families. They actively campaign to improve their lives and safeguard the Military Covenant between the nation and its Armed Forces. They also organise the Poppy Appeal, one of the UK's largest membership organisations and are recognised as the nation's custodian of Remembrance.
Their mission is to provide welfare, comradeship, representation and remembrance for the Armed Forces Community.

In 2012 Andrew and Tim are also pledging financial support to Lawrence Dallaglio and Andrew ‘Freddie’ Flintoff who will be embarking on a four day challenge, cycling through the high Alps, across Switzerland and into France. All proceeds raised will support the two sportsmen’s charities’; The Dallaglio Foundation is a charity set up by Lawrence in 2009 supporting Cancer Research UK (specifically a Prostate Cancer research & screening programme), whist The AF Foundation, set up by Freddie and Rachael Flintoff, is a children’s charity that is aiming to raise funds to build, develop and improve Child Rehabilitation & Physiotherapy Units throughout the UK.
