RAISING FUNDS FOR charity at the Manchester-based Think Money Group last year included everything from sedate cake baking to the rather more demanding Three Peaks Challenge, in which more than 100 staff took part. Three-quarters of its workforce are aged between 21 and 34.
Team-based competition at the financial services firm encourages charitable endeavour. There are more than 950 employees split into 10 groups, and the team which raises the most over the year is rewarded with a night out. Last year’s winning effort raised £10,000.
