Christmas Charity Countdown

Every day in December 2016, a charity chosen by an employee each received £100

The Charity and Good Causes Committee ran a Christmas Charity Countdown. Each day throughout December, a door opened to reveal a local charity which we’ll make a donation to - £100 each day!

The Charity and Good Causes Committee wanted to ensure that in the lead up to Christmas, local charities that meant something to our employees were given the chance to benefit from a donation. What better way to do this than create an advent calendar where each day a door was opened to reveal a different charity. It was heartening to see such a fantastic response from our employees across all of our sites. We had to pull names out of the hat to determine which charities would benefit.  Reading through why these charities meant so much to those individuals was particularly encouraging to ensure that something positive would be done with the donation.
