Our chosen charity this year was supporting Children in Need, and we took part in a whole host of events at our headquarters, with all the money that we raised going to the Children in Need campaign. Through the fundraisers that took place we raised nearly £30,000 from activities, with the Bosch Group as a whole in theUKraising over £60,000 in total!
With events such as raffles, a tombola, cake sales, golf putting games, guess the baby competition and a much awaited sponsored leg wax, we hoped to raise the total even more. Children in Need is a cause close to so many people’s hearts atWorcesterand all of our activities showed our commitment to supporting charities.
All of our staff lent a helping hand to Pudsey, but it was Alex Clayton – our online intern in marketing – who underwent the gruelling activity of having his legs waxed in front of all of his fellow colleagues!
We are always delighted to be able to support such a worthwhile cause and all of our fundraisers this year have been really successful. Children in Need really is a brilliant charity and we are over the moon that we have raised nearly £30,000 for them. All our employees have been involved at every level from brainstorming the events to running them and even simply joining in with activities and popping money into collection boxes.
Our national sales team have also run events all over the country to help to swell the total. A team fromWorcesteralso carried a boiler to the top ofBen Nevisand raised over £1000 in the process and we had a large team complete the 3 Peaks Challenge earlier in the year. We didn’t want to miss any opportunity to get involved in the fundraising and I think we all looked forward to Alex getting his legs waxed– although no-one else has offered to join in with his activity!
