We announced our charity partnership with Leonard Cheshire, leading disability charity, at our annual conference and awards dinner on the 29th March. To kick this partnership off we are holding #ADayWithout on Thursday 12th March. The idea behind #ADayWithout is that many people with a disability have to go without things every day so this is a way to help raise awareness and hopefully raise some money for a good cause too.
Derek Skelton our CEO was the first to make a pledge, agreeing to go a whole day without chocolate, which as those who know him will agree, is a challenge! We have asked all our employees to take part by pledging £5 to give up something they love for the day. The person with the most innovative idea will win a prize! All proceeds will go towards our fundraising target of £10K to help Leonard Cheshire continue their work to support people with disability to live, learn & work.
Keep your eyes peeled for pledge photos throughout the day on Thursday 12th March.
