Radian’s Human Resources team, primarily based in its Eastleigh and Windsor offices, this week donated the money collected through their fundraising activities.
The HR team felt it was important to fundraise for a charity and each member of the team discovered they all knew of someone who had recently lost the fight with cancer. It was unanimously felt that Cancer Research UK would be the first charity to benefit from their fundraising efforts.
So far, the team has held raffles and gift sales, organised a plant sale and held numerous cake sales. Individual team members have also sold fresh vegetables from personal allotments. Generous support from other teams across Radian, a not for profit organisation which provides affordable housing and help for people who need support to lead in dependent lives, has helped the team to be able to donate £434 to Cancer Research UK. This is in addition to money raised earlier in the year through the participation of individual Radian staff members, including some from HR, in Race for Life Events.
Bridgett Vane, Area Volunteer Manager, Cancer Research UK, said:
“We are always thrilled when local companies and their staff fundraise for us. The HR team at Radian raised over £400 in a very short space of time by engaging the staff in simple things, like a plant sale and a cake sale. As Cancer Research UK is entirely funded by the public we really appreciate it when people fundraise for us as this enables our groundbreaking research to continue and our goals to be realised.”
