Thursday, 22nd November 2012 - Unicom donates £1357.94 to Children in Need

Staff at Unicom have helped to raise a huge £1357.94 for Children in need following a week of fundraising events. A variety of fundraising activities took place in the run up to Children in Need, including cake sales, leg waxing, balloon modelling and a pub quiz. Unicom’s suppliers kindly donated raffle prizes including 2 tickets for the X Factor live final, a luxury French food hamper and a bottle of Champagne.

Chris Bardwell-Doughty, a former member of the graduate management scheme who managed the events, said “The Children in Need fundraising week was great fun and raised money for a worth cause. We arranged events for each day of the week leading up to Children in Need night, getting staff involved using talents such as baking and balloon making. Our suppliers donated some amazing prizes which helped us reach a total of £678.97 in donations from staff. I’m really proud of this achievement and very pleased the company agreed to match the total raised, making the final total donated £1357.94!”
