A few things have been happening over the last couple of weeks at Autonet Insurance, our charity committee have been busy thinking of fundraising events ready for Children in Need 2011 and a staff member has been put through to the finals of a prestigious Insurance Times event.
It’s that time of year again Children in Need 2011 will be taking place on Friday 18th November. The worthy cause provides grants to projects in the UK which focus on children and young people who are disadvantaged. They are local to people in all corners of the UK and support small and large organisations which empower children and extend their life choices.
Autonet will be taking part in a few fundraising activities throughout the day including our Charity Committee staff baking and selling cakes with the money raised being donated to Children in Need. We will also be doing a sponsored wax and staff at Autonet will be donating their dress down money to Children in Need. We are hoping to beat last year’s figure of £1678.49.
In the last charity blog we mentioned about our charity bins we have around Autonet insurance for Animal Lifeline and The Salvation Army.
We have had a good amount of donation of pet food and toys for Animal Lifeline and a strong supply of clothes for the Salvation Army.
We will be continuing to donate to the above charities throughout the month.
