CSR INITIATIVES: RAISING MONEY AND DONATING TO CHARITY
Toy collections for Great Ormond Street Hospital, Clay pigeon shooting and Santa fun runs are just some of the charity initiatives our staff at Rendall & Rittner have been taking part in over the last few months. We take our Corporate Social Responsibility very seriously and even won an Excellence Investors in People Award on this very subject.
We ensure that social, ethical and environmental principles are ingrained across our business. To do this we have developed green initiatives such as our work during Recycle Week, focus on delivering community engagement activities across our sites, and have a focus group in place to co-ordinate our fund-raising efforts.
At Rendall & Rittner we continuously support two charities - Great Ormond Street Hospital and The Stroke Association. In addition, every two years’ our staff also select a third charity and this is currently, Shelter – a charity that works to alleviate homelessness and bad housing. As a business, we feel that we must fulfill our duty to give back to worthy causes within the community.
Only recently seven members of our Southern team took part in an inflatable Santa fun run in Brighton, raising over £500 for our charity, Shelter. Another four members of staff took part in an Urban Rush 15-mile run to raise over £800 for the charity too. Other events our teams have taken part in, include:
- A Halloween quiz night in Manchester, raising over £650 for homeless charity 'The Big Change'
- A team participated in Berkeley Homes’ charity five-a-side football tournament at Wembley Park
- Teamed up with LaundryRepublic to encourage residents to have a clear out of their wardrobes for Scope during Recycle
- A team took part in a clay pigeon shooting event in aid of St Edward’s, created by the Berkeley Foundation where our ladies were top of the leader board and helped to raise £24,000.
We have recently been collecting old coats from our residents and staff at a number of our developments , to donate to Calling London, these will then be distributed to homeless shelters, food banks, women’s refugees and various charities across London.
We are also currently encouraging our residents to get involved with the Great Ormond Street Hospital toy appeal, to donate gifts for children who will be spending their time in hospital over Christmas.
Our staff are eager to continue with fundraising efforts for all our charities and we will continue to support selected charities as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility.
