Our Head of Fundraising, Debra Bollan, travelled up to Birmingham yesterday to meet with research consultancy, Ecorys. The company selected us as their Charity of the Year for 2017 and presented Debra with a cheque for a phenomenal £9,192.
As well as donating 1% of their annual sales, the socially conscious team have taken part in a number of fundraising activities including tough mudder, bake sales and a summer sports day. Project Manager, Eva, who has played a key role in organising the events said “The charity was chosen by employees as we have a lot of sympathy for older people who are socially isolated and this touched us. We’re proud to have been part of your journey to continue to help and support older people. We wish you all the best with your work.”
Kath Davies, Support Officer for the West Midlands, who also attended the presentation yesterday, thanked the employees and said, “It has been an absolute pleasure to be involved with the team at Ecorys over the past year. The enthusiasm and support from all the staff who participated in fundraising activities, in particular the CSR Ambassadors, was phenomenal. Their generous donations have made a real difference to the continued success and expansion of the charity.”
A massive thank you to everyone at Ecorys for all your hard work!
