Giving Something Back
Giving Something Back
Every year, employees are given the opportunity to nominate a charity for any monies raised to be donated to. The Social Committee is responsible for choosing 3 or 4 causes which the money raised throughout the year is divided between. Fundraising events go on within different offices throughout the year. Local offices regularly hold dress down days, bacon roll mornings, book sales, Burns lunches and lots more. Employees are allowed to participate in these activities during work hours in order to raise as much money as possible.
