Festive Fundraising 2021
Russell Finex staff raise over £2000 through Christmas fundraising
Ending the year on a high, staff at Russell Finex came together to raise money for UK charity, Children in Need and international charity, Save the Children through a variety of fundraising efforts during the festive period.
Children in Need is a UK based organization who fund over 2,500 local charities to provide direct support to disadvantaged children and young adults. Save the Children provide children access to better health care, education and economic opportunities as well as delivering emergency aid to over 122 countries due to natural disasters or conflict.
With £190 raised on November 19th as part of the annual Children in Need appeal, Russell Finex staff also voted the UK based charity as the receiver of funds raised by the 2021 Russell Finex Raffle. There were some exciting prizes to be won including Apple Air Pods, a Nintendo Switch, and a paintballing experience, amongst many others. In addition, a silent auction was held where one lucky winner won a two night stay at the four star Clayton Hotel in Chiswick. In total £1,760 was raised from the raffle and £85 from the auction making a total of £2,035 going to Children in Need in 2021.
The fundraising didn’t stop there. Russell Finex also got involved with Christmas Jumper Day on December 10 with staff wearing their most festive jumpers as well as donating towards the communal Christmas card, raising over £170 for Save the Children.
Managing Director, Ray Singh, said: “The past two years have been increasingly difficult for charities with fundraising events having to be cancelled or scaled back. The money raised by Russell Finex is an excellent achievement and represents the giving nature of the staff working for the company, money that will make a significant difference to those in need.”
Thank you to all Russell Finex staff who supported and donated to raise over £2000. We look forward to another successful year in 2022, fundraising even more money for charities.
