Various employees from different teams have formed a Charity and Social Committee who meet and organise numerous activities for the company, which include weekly yoga sessions to bring out the zen, a Last Word football club to keep in shape and a company quiz night (because who doesn’t love a bit of competition)!
The committee also organise fund-raising activities and volunteer for various charities including. Recently we’ve had The Great Last Word Bake Off and as standard we have Christmas Jumper Day and for Comic Relief – a week of no swearing within the office otherwise a donation to the swear jar had to be made!
For volunteering, a number of our employees work with the charity Reach Out to spend some of their spare time mentoring and working with young people from disadvantaged backgrounds who are disengaged or underachieving to help them improve their academic attainment and develop their character. It’s a great initiative and one we’re very proud to support.
