Riverside selected Cancer Research UK to be its corporate charity in September 2014. So far colleagues have raised over £14,500.
Colleagues really entered into the spirit of fundraising for such a worthy cause and have held many events since the partnership started.
During Launch Week at the end of September Riverside staff held a Football Shirt Friday. Colleagues from across the Group were asked to show their colours and donate to the charity – even some Directors donned football shirts! The event raised hundreds of pounds.
Over the holiday season colleagues really came together and raised lots of funds. From raffles and auctions to wearing silly jumpers and a Christmas e-card featuring our very own Chief Executive Carol Matthews. In total all the holiday events raised a staggering £3,000.
Riverside colleagues are also donating unwanted items utilising Donation Stations which our located in most of our offices across the Group. So far the total raised from the Donation Stations has reached nearly £5,000.
The partnership with Cancer Research UK continues until September 2016.
