EDM, a global provider of training simulators to the civil aviation and defence sectors, has announced that it has donated GBP 5000 to the Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham´s Homelessness Fund, the company said.

Mayor Burnham launched the fund in June this year as part of his mayoral election pledge to end rough sleeping in Greater Manchester by 2020. After donating 15% of his own salary to the fund and encouraging donations from individuals and companies, the Mayor is now actively inviting community and voluntary organisations established to help homeless people to apply for money to help tackle the issue.

Tony Bermingham, Managing Director of EDM, handed over the cheque for GBP 5000 to the Mayor last month whilst he was visiting the company to formally open its new GBP 1.3m 20,000 square feet manufacturing facility.
