Analox staff helped set up for the last Cornshed festival which took place in June.

The live music festival celebrated its 30th anniversary this year and was held on SexHow Park Farm in Hutton Rudby, on 24 and 25 June.

The event has raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for the Great North Air Ambulance and other charities since it was founded.

A team of Analox staff volunteered the day before the festival as part of the company’s ‘Charity Days’, which entitles them to one day a year to help out local charitable organisations.

These days are organised to not only give help and support to local charities, but also bring colleagues together who they may not normally see during the normal working day.

Analox have previously provided help to autism charity Daisy Chain, animal shelter SARA, and RSPB Saltholme as well as the Cornshed Festival.

Nicky Cope, Business Administrative Support Assistant, said: “It was a very warm day and we had to work together to get the tasks done, which involved putting up fencing as well as moving tables, settees and chairs into place for the event. It was lovely as a new member of staff to get to know colleagues that I wouldn't normally interact with on a daily basis, and I thought it was a fantastic team building day!”

The festival was a massive success and featured music from Oasisjam, Bon Jovi Forever, The Longtall Beatles and The Fallen.

Analox is always on the lookout for new charities to help out with, so if you know a community organisation which would appreciate a little extra help, please email
