Since the beginning of 2014, we have supported Cancer Research UK. This charity was the run away favourite following a staff survey carried out at the end of 2013, and goes to show how cancer affects almost everyone at some stage of their life. From big events (sit down dinners and team cycling challenges) to small initiatives (guess the number of sweets in a jar and guess the baby picture) we've put together a calendar of events to help us reach our fundraising target of £40,000.
And the good news is that you can help too. Book a central London meeting room for 10 people or more, and we will donate £1 to Cancer Research. We hope to raise over £5,000 this year for them by doing this.
Previously, we supported Sparks, the children's medical research charity, and raised over £110,000 for them over a 6 year period.
We’re a relatively fit bunch too. There’s a 5 aside football team which takes part in a local league. Every summer, we organise a softball evening at Hyde Park complete with a yummy picnic. The emphasis is less about competitive sport and more about getting everyone together over a few drinks.
Our annual staff quiz night is not to be missed either. With questions ranging from the bizarre, to the downright ridiculous, it’s always a hotly fought contest. The night is complete with a fabulous raffle.
