In our “Announcing the Creditplus Charity of the Year 2018” blog, we announced that we will be supporting the RNLI this year. This charity is 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’. As they rely on donations, we decided that we, at Creditplus, could do our part in helping the community.
To kick off our year of fundraising the Digital Team decided to host a coffee morning. We invited everyone in the office to bring along cakes or other tasty treats if they wished to take part, or even just simply try one in exchange for a small donation. Any donation was appreciated - it all adds up!
We set up a table in the main office with a white board behind it announcing that the table full of tasty treats was, in fact, the cake sale, just to save any confusion.
We ended up with quite a selection of cakes, so no one was left disappointed.
The morale was high, and people enjoyed treating themselves to some cake for a good cause. It was lovely to see people interacting and enjoying themselves.
The Creditplus team felt very passionate and excited about the fundraiser; these are the moments where we can come together, to really make a difference.
At the end of a very successful day we raised a total sum of £33.45.
What’s next, you ask? Stay tuned to find out what Creditplus do next to raise money for this extremely worthwhile charity!
