Domestic and General employees have engaged in sports challenges and team activities to raise money for charity.
Employees across the appliance care organisation’s four UK offices took part in a static bike ride, a virtual running challenge, and the creation of a giant paper chain in order to raise money and awareness for charity The Mix, which provides support for young people.
Six members of staff participated in the charity’s cycling challenge, which saw them travel 900 miles across nine countries in nine days. This Ride 999 challenge also included ‘first to nine’ ping pong and air hockey tournaments.
Domestic and General made a 10% contribution to the funds raised by its employees, bringing the total amount donated to the charity to £140,000.
Caroline Huggett, UK HR director at Domestic and General, said: “This is a huge achievement and I would like to take the opportunity to thank all of our staff and those who gave generously to help us raise this sum.
“The partnership [with The Mix] is a cause close to our hearts demonstrating our mutual core values particularly being fair, caring and dependable. We couldn’t have asked for more from our employees over the course of this year. We put the call out to them and they answered. We hope this will help The Mix to continue the excellent work that it does across the UK.”
