Following a week’s worth of company-wide fundraising activities, staff at Bath-based water and sewerage company Wessex Water have raised almost £3,000 for Children in Need.
Wessex Water encouraged staff from its offices across the region to take part in a week of activities dedicated to raising money for the life-changing charity.
Wessex Water’s goal of raising £1,000 was almost tripled thanks to the donations made by staff.
The activities included paper plane flying, cracker eating and arm-wrestling competitions, as well as a sponsored leg waxing and a raffle.
To finish off the week of fundraising, staff at several sites were able to dress up or down following a donation to Children in Need.
Office services manager Karon Trainor, who coordinated the week of activities for Wessex Water, said: “This has been a week of fun, excitement and fantastic staff engagement – but, more than all of that, it has been a week of generosity.
“The excellent total raised goes to show what can be done for a good cause when we all donate just a small amount.”
