Her advice: “It’s important to the overall balance of my life and I don’t think I could feel happy in my career if I weren’t also giving back to the community through volunteer service.”

They have worked with the North Texas Food Bank, Community Partners of Dallas, Salvation Army, Meals on Wheels, Komen 3-Day Walk and Operation Kindness Animal Shelter, to name a few.

Copart UK Goes Red for Rainbow

On Feb. 14, 2019, Copart UK was proud to support the annual I Love Claims (ILC) Day to raise funds for Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity by wearing red to work.

Colleagues across our 15 UK locations rocked something red, and organized bake sales, raffles and games. Combined with a contribution to the ILC Raffle, Copart UK raised over £1,800.

ILC (I Love Claims), which launched in 2010, is a collaboration of like-minded individuals and businesses focused on shaping a claims world that is sustainable for all.

Since it began in 2013, ILC Day has raised more than £61,000 for ILC’s official charity partner, the Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity. Rainbow Trust provides bespoke emotional and practical support to families who have a child (up to the age of 18) with a serious illness.

Karen Langley, Marketing & Internal Communications Executive at Copart UK, said: “We were delighted to join forces with other members of the claims community to support the annual ILC Day and help raise funds for this amazing charity, which provides vital support to families with a seriously ill child.”
