As Christmas is the season of giving, we're doing our bit to give back to those less fortunate than ourselves with a reverse advent calendar campaign. Starting last week, our teams are bringing in one item each day for two weeks. This Friday 14th December, we'll gather all the donations together and distribute to our four chosen regional charities. To celebrate the end of our good deed, we're hosting Christmas Jumper Day whereby we'll wear our festive knitwear to work and donate £2 each to charity. On top of this, we're running a pre-Christmas bonus ball competition to raise money for charity too. More.
