£10,000 Donation Milestone Passed!
Winn Group is delighted to announce they have achieved their target of donating £10,000 to charitable causes throughout the last financial year.
This has been split between a number of good causes, with the Great North Air Ambulance Service - our chosen charity of the year - receiving the bulk, and the rest being spread out between terrific organisations such as Headway, MASS, Brake and Living Streets.
Driven forward by a determined CSR committee, the company held a number of internal and external events to help with the fundraising, with a range of methods also used to provide donations directly from Winn Group.
This included sponsorship and entering a team in a golf day, donating gifts to charity raffles and providing one-off donations throughout the financial year, with the Newcastle Cat and Dog Shelter benefitting from a festive donation drive courtesy of one of our solicitors.
Our CSR committee hosted a quiz night at the Tyneside Cinema, as well as a hugely successful, dance-filled bingo night. There was a sponsored row in the office, a hamper raffle and the odd treat trolley going around, all of which raised a tremendous sum of money.
Winn Group is delighted to have passed this milestone, helping these worthy causes to continue their outstanding work.
Michael Warmington, Associate Director – Head of Group HR and Office Management, said; “This is a fantastic achievement and is testament to the hard work put in by all concerned. The events have been well received and a real boost to team morale.
“The result of all of this is we are able to, as a company and group of people, donate much-needed funding to a range of charities and causes who all do superb work in helping vulnerable people and those that need assistance. A thank you to our CSR committee for all of their help throughout and to everyone who has kindly donated to these worthy causes.”
