LSTR donates €110,000 to Action against Hunger (ACF)

By Kevin Rozario |

At the end of January, duty free and travel retail operator LS Travel Retail donated €109,164 ($150,000) to charity Action against Hunger (ACF) which works with populations suffering from malnutrition, primarily children.


The French, UK and Swiss operations of LSTR (part of Lagardère Services) raised most of the money in their respective outlets by asking passengers to make a €2 (or more) donation at checkout. LSTR has worked in partnership with ACF for the past three years. In 2013, Aelia also participated in the Inter-Company Challenge against Hunger, organised each year by ACF, which raised over €5,000.


On 30 January, Ambroise Fondeur (Aelia’s Chief Executive Officer), Pascal Le Droff (Operations Director) and Guy Bodescot (SDA’s Chief Executive Officer) presented Stéphanie Rivoal, President of ACF, with a cheque, in the presence of the different stakeholders involved in this project (see main picture).


At the cheque presentation, Fondeur said: “Our commitment to organisations like Action against Hunger is a reflection of our state of mind, putting people at the heart of our approach. Our teams are proud to come together for such a cause, which appeals to everybody’s generosity and solidarity.”


The partnership continues in 2014 with, says LSTR, “the ambition of ever greater mobilisation of the LS Travel Retail network teams in France and abroad”.
