12 Days Till Christmas Charity CampaignDecember 6, 2018
At GFM we are getting into the festive spirit this year by launching a ’12 Days Till Christmas’ charity campaign, whereby every day from December 13th up until Christmas Day the company will be holding a charitable event in aid of a different local charity.
To kick start this campaign we have decided that rather than sending out Christmas cards, as we always have done in the past, this year they will be sending out ecards and then donating the money saved from not sending out actual cards to the Essex Air Ambulance – who provide a free life-saving air ambulance emergency medical service for the critically ill and injured in Essex, Herts and the surrounding areas.
Bringing the campaign to an astounding conclusion on Christmas day our Contact Centre Manager Justin Stone will be walking a staggering 55 miles from Colchester to London to fundraise for mental health charity Mind. The other Essex based charities that were chosen by members of staff to receive donations of money, time, food, toys or clothes will be; Barnardo’s, Beacon House, Colchester Food Bank, Colchester Hospital, Essex Wildlife Trust, MS UK, Save the Children, St Helena Hospice and TEECH.
Commenting on this innovative charity initiative our CFO Rachael Willis stated, “We are proud to provide a variety of UK charities with our contact centre, marketing and fulfilment services; however, our interest in the charities we support goes beyond just working with them and we have and will continue to hold events like this to help these great causes. Everyone at the company is really excited for this campaign to start and looking forward to 12 days of fun activities and festive fundraising leading up to Christmas.”
As if this wasn’t enough, to coincide with this charity initiative we will also be bringing further Christmas cheer to our offices through a variety of Christmas themed activities for our amazing staff including; Secret Santa, Christmas Jumper Day, a ‘Decorate your Department’ competition and an end of year Christmas Party.
To find out exactly what we will be doing each day of our ’12 Days Till Christmas’ charity campaign check out our social media channels where we will be revealing the full details of each event daily in an advent calendar style fashion.
