London, United Kingdom, August 25, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- True Telecom is pleased to announce that employees of True Telecom have raised a total of £342.29 for Make-A-Wish® UK.
Over the past three months, employees of True Telecom have been donating £2 to leave their suits at home on the last Friday of each month, opting instead to wear their home clothes. Employees of the company have also fundraised in a number of other ways including a bake sale, pub quiz and charity face painting at their annual summer party.
There are currently 20,000 children and young people in the UK fighting a life-threatening condition. In 2016 Make-A-Wish want to grant more than 1000 wishes and need to raise £11.5 million in order to achieve this. Make-A-Wish receives no government funding, so every donation really does count.
Fern Hugill, PR and Social Media manager presented Val, an ambassador for Make-A-Wish UK with a cheque for £342.29 at a presentation ceremony on Friday the 19th of August, at True Telecom’s office in Dartford.
Stuart Griffiths, CEO of True Telecom added, “Supporting charity has always been a priority here at True, so it’s a real pleasure to raise some valuable funds for the charity Make A Wish. Our employees love taking part in dress down days and donating to a worthwhile cause. It really is True what they say, Nothing makes people come together more, than helping those in need.”
