As 2012 was our 50th Anniversary year it was really important for us, as a company, to mark our success by giving something back to the local community.
At the start of the year we pledged to donate 50 days of volunteer work to local charities.
Employees from departments across the business each took some time out from their day-to-day duties to lend a helping hand to those in need. Colleagues pulled together and painted the facilities at Sight Concern and the Acorns Children’s Charity, helped to build new wildlife areas around Worcester, and even mucked in to de-rust and repaint the Severn Valley Railway. Internally we also organised a number of fundraisers around special occasions, such as The Christmas fancy dress days during Christmas Week [pictured].
All the money raised over the course of the year has been split between five Worcestershire charities to help make a difference locally.
We owe special thanks to our employees, suppliers and customers for really getting involved in our charity work this year and helping us to make 2012 so memorable. We plan to announce the total sum raised and will also be presenting our chosen charities with their share in the next few weeks.
Thanks for reading, and Happy New Year.
Victoria Billings, Marketing Projects Manager, Bosch Group.
