Employees across different teams at Last Word have formed a Charity and Social Committee who meet and organise fun activities for the company. From weekly yoga sessions to bring out the zen, to a Last Word football club and a company quiz night, because who doesn’t love a bit of competition?
The committee also organises fundraising activities and volunteering for various charities; recently we’ve had 'The Great Last Word Bake Off' and 'Christmas Jumper Day', and for Comic Relief we partook in a week of no swearing, where any profanity in the office meant a donation to the 'swear jar' had to be made!
As part of the committee's volunteering, a number of our employees work with the charity Reach Out, and dedicate some of their spare time to mentoring and working with young people from disadvantaged backgrounds who are disengaged or underachieving. The aim is to help them improve their academic attainment and develop their character. It’s a great initiative, and one we’re very proud to support.
