Staff at health insurance provider, Westfield Health have put the ‘fun’ in fundraising after raising over £1500 for charity.
Employees at the Sheffield-based company have taken part in a number of fundraising activities to help raise money for their chosen charities NSPCC, Cancer Research and British Heart Foundation.
Staff at Westfield Health were asked to vote for their top three charities earlier in the year and to help raise funds they’ve taken part in fun activities including fancy dress, carol singing at Christmas and cake competitions.
In addition to the top three charities, some of the fund was donated to Sheffield’s Cathedral Archer Project as well as Children in Need, Comic Relief and Prostrate Cancer UK as part of Movember – where smooth shaven faces were swapped for manicured manly moustaches.
Heather Bamford, Chair of the Westfield Health’s Employee Community Group said:
“Charitable giving is a strong ethos at Westfield. Each year Westfield’s Charitable Trust donates to charity and staff wanted to do their bit too.
“We have some very dedicated and brave fundraising volunteers who aren’t afraid of being the first one to be in fancy dress or the first one to start singing the carols at Christmas.
“It is a great feeling to be able to give something back in to the community but at the same time mixing a bit of fun in to business.”
