Colleagues from our Newcastle office recently took to their marks in order to help support Sport Relief 2016. A team of over 140 volunteers manned the phones on March 18 between 6pm and midnight, receiving donations that will be used to make a difference in the world’s poorest communities.
Our volunteers really got involved, recreating an office Olympics where colleagues cycled 535 miles, the distant between all our offices, on two spinning bikes. They also hosted a blind auction plus raised money through raffles, a bake sale and a dress down day with all proceeds going to the charity.
The team was kept in high spirits by visits from sporting celebrities including premiership footballers Lee Cattermole (SAFC) and Rob Elliott (NUFC), who dropped in over the course of the evening to help cheer them on.
As the team were on site until late into the night they ensured their energy was kept topped up by consuming a whopping 60 pizzas, 150 cans of RedBull and 108 Krispy Kreme doughnuts.
Overall a great night was had by all and we were proud to be able to support and raise cash for such an important cause.
