Giving something back
Robins & Day take pride in giving something back. Not only because it raises valuable funds for the charities close to our hearts, but because our employees are always happy to go that extra mile, creating the fun, engaging workplace everyone should strive for!
With that in mind, we have decided to create a section demonstrating the commitment to the community shown by all our employees, to tell you a little more about the incredible fundraising taking place, and in hope that everyone who hears about that will feel motivated to join in and do their bit too!
What we did in 2020
Robins & Day take pride in giving something back, and even in 2020 the year no one saw coming, we still managed to continue to support charities when they needed it most. Once the pandemic hit we were unable to continue with some of our traditional charity days, which we know and love. However, we still found ways of raising money and donated over £25,000 to some fantastic causes. Here is a snapshot of some of the events that took place…
We kicked off this year’s fundraising in March with a cycle challenge for Sport Relief to ‘Beat the Boss!’ Our CEO, James Weston, and Sales Director, Richard Garbutt, cycled 100km on a tandem from home to work! All of our employees competed to ‘beat the boss’ by clocking up 100km on their own exercise bikes before James and Richard arrived at our Head Office in Coventry, all whilst raising money.
Whilst we were restricted from holding our usual Children in Need extravaganza, we still found ways of raising money for this important cause. So, with a combination of people at work, at home, or working from home, we all got involved from uploading pictures of our pets, getting the blood flowing for a Fitness Friday, as well as taking part in an online Quiz.
This year we joined in the festive fun by getting involved in a few different activities, such as pulling on our best Christmas Jumpers, a Christmas decorations competition, food bank donations, and some Christmas baking! All in return for a donation to Save the Children.
Adapted Site Services
We would also like to recognise our 5 Robins & Day Distrigo Hubs and our Adapted Service Centres that had been working throughout the pandemic to help support the emergency service and key workers nationwide. A big thank you on behalf of Robins & Day and all of your customers!
