With Christmas right around the corner, the Teknek team got into the festive spirit, participating in Christmas jumper day. The event was a mix of fun and fundraising, with a prize for the best jumper. With 3 finalists, the prize was won by Laura Cunningham (on the right) in our Customer Service team.
Our staff raised a respectable £182 and the Teknek Directors have generously increased that sum to £400. The money raised will be donated to Cash for Kids, helping Children in the local community.
Cash for Kids lends a helping hand to disabled and disadvantaged children aged 0 to 18 years across 21 areas in the UK by means of a grant giving process.
Grants awarded go towards buying specialist equipment for children to enhance their quality of life. They are given to children’s charities and organisations to help them undertake projects and new initiatives or to ensure that much-needed services can continue to provide essential care and support.
All the money raised on behalf of Cash for Kids stays in the area it was raised in providing a helping hand when and where it is needed most.
Cash for Kids raised over £21.4 million in 2018, supporting more than 1 million children.
Christmas is a time for giving, and we are delighted to be donating £400 to such a worthy cause, helping disabled and disadvantaged children in the local community.
