The Robert Walters Group is proud to announce another record-breaking Global Charity Day, with £145,984 raised for charities around the globe, including Cancer Research UK, Acreditar, Door of Hope, Captivating International, Charity in Unity, Go Vap Orphanage, Anna’s House, AIME and The Mental Health Foundation.
A creative approach to fundraising
Each year, staff from across Robert Walters, Resource Solutions and Walters People come together combining teamwork, creativity and athleticism to raise as much money as possible for their chosen charities. This year, our people dressed up, dressed down, dressed to impress and some even sold dresses. Hundreds of miles were covered on foot and by bike; there were makeup lessons, dance lessons, bake sales, chicken nugget and maggot eating contests, raffles and BBQs. And an uncountable number of cream pies were thrown.
Outside our offices, fundraising efforts continued. In Malaysia, members of staff volunteered their practical skills at Pertubuhan Pusat Kebajikan Destiny welfare centre, helping the charity to provide education to underprivileged children by transforming their classroom into a bright, colourful and safe learning environment. Meanwhile, in Düsseldorf, our teams supported the Düsseldorfer Tafel by preparing meals for local people in need.
In Belgium, our teams spent the day litter picking in their local areas in support of 4ocean, a global movement committed to cleaning oceans worldwide. Whilst in London, a group of staff took on a 26-mile marathon walk in aid of Cancer Research UK.
Giles Daubeney, Deputy CEO of Robert Walters Group, commented:
“Every year I am amazed by the effort and creativity displayed by our staff on Charity Day. It’s a real pleasure to report that we have broken our fundraising record again in 2018. Thank you to all our staff, whose dedication to giving back to their local communities means we can help charities around the world to continue the vital work that they do.”
