In 2018 the Vistair 200 Club was created as a way of focusing charitable giving from the company thereby providing the team with a path through which individuals could gain support for their respective charities; and highlight the great work those charities do.

The responsibility for the selection and distribution of funds was given to the newly created Vistair Social Committee, committed members of the Vistair Team, who took on the role of this and a host of other social activities.

As 2018 draws to a close, the Vistair Team is proud to reflect  on the number of charitable causes supported; each of which were chosen by Vistair employees.  Equally, throughout the year the Vistair 200 Club has been supplemented by other timely charitable opportunities.
