At Creditplus, we believe it’s important to give something back to the community. We also believe in fostering team spirit and working together to do something worthwhile. We’ve taken part in various charity fundraising activities in the past, but we want to do more in 2018.

That’s why we’ve decided, for the first time ever, to nominate a company Charity of the Year. We will be planning a calendar of fun activities and fundraising events throughout the year. Every single penny we raise will be donated to our chosen charity.

Drumroll please…

We are delighted to announce that our Charity of the Year for 2018 is the RNLI, the charity devoted to saving lives at sea.

Founded in 1824, the charity describes its philosophy as providing a lifesaving service using volunteers wherever possible, with ‘voluntary donations supplying the funds needed to do so’.

They provide a 24-hour, on call lifeboat search and rescue service, as well as seasonal lifeguards, with the goal to ‘end preventable loss of life at sea’. They describe themselves as ‘innovative, adaptable and determined in their mission to save lives at sea’, and value their teams’ willingness to put the requirements of others before their own.

With lifeboat stations all over the country and countless training and education initiatives both here and overseas, the scope of their work is vast and extraordinary. Not only that, but their headquarters are just around the corner from us here in Poole. Clearly, they were the obvious choice!

We’re excited for the year ahead

We are so proud to be official supporters of the RNLI and look forward to announcing our fundraising plans early in the new year. We will be working closely with our local lifeboat stations to organise some really interesting events, so watch this space!

You can follow our fundraising journey on Twitter or Facebook and find out more about the RNLI on their website.
