Workers get into the spirit of Halloween in aid of charity


Nov 4, 2017 #Business, #charity

Staff at Coast & Country’s contact centre got into the spirit of Halloween to raise money for worthy causes on Teesside.

They worked for a day in ghoulish and ghostly fancy dress to bring in cash for the social housing company’s three adopted charities – MacMillan Cancer Support, South Cleveland Heart Fund and Teesside Hospice.

The fundraising activity, which also included a raffle and bake sale, was organised by the company’s Charities Group and Relief Customer Adviser Ashley Smallwood.

Iain Sim, Coast & Country Chief Executive, said: “As a people-focused organisation, we encourage our staff to be involved in the wider community.

“I am very proud how our employees are helping raise money for these three fantastic causes that they chose for us to support.”

The Halloween fundraising activity by Coast & Country staff raised more than £560.

The three organisations became Coast & Country’s corporate charities in 2016 and they have raised over £10,000 for them.
