FastTrack's Dress-Down Fundraisers!
Over the past few weeks, FastTrack have been raising money for various charities through dress-down days! First of all, our Watford Office held an Office Dress-Down in order to raise money for a local parent who ran the Brighton Marathon to raise money for the NSPCC! Raising a £41.16 donation, the money will help to fund trained volunteers in primary schools in the UK, in delivering difficult information with the expertise and security that ChildLine has developed over the past 25years!
For the biennial Red Nose Day on 14th March, our Watford office had a dress down day raising £39.09 (plus a fantastic donation of £50 for the charity from James Barnham!).
Part of Comic Relief, the charity’s aim is to "bring about positive and lasting change in the lives of poor and disadvantaged people, which we believe requires investing in work that addresses people's immediate needs as well as tackling the root causes of poverty and injustice".
At the end of the 2015 Red Nose Day telethon it was announced that in the 30-year history of Comic Relief the Red Nose Day and Sport Relief appeals had raised in excess of £1bn (£1,047,083,706)! Fantastic!
For more information on the NSPCC, please visit their website at http://www.nspcc.org.uk/ and take a look at the Red Nose Day website at http://www.rednoseday.com/! Don't forget to make your own donations for both causes...REMEMBER a little goes a long way!
