All our employees get involved with charities throughout the year by either raising money or volunteering and with so many charities to choose from and not wanting to be biased as we work in the not-for-profit sector, we set up the “Robertson Bell Charity Challenge.”
The scheme encourages employees to raise money or volunteer for causes that have touched them in some way, or that they feel passionate about. Last year we raised almost £2000 by running, cycling, swimming, baking and dressing up. At the end of the year the highest amount raised by an individual was matched by Robertson Bell for their chosen cause. Presently, Angela Bailey our Marketing Executive is in the lead having raised £778.03 by competing in her first triathlon for Cancer Research, and organising a Pyjama day and baking for BBC Children in Need.
Last year for #GivingTuesday we collected essential items to donate to our local foodbank in Northampton. Find out more here: http://www.restorenorthampton.org.uk/feed.html
