Edenred gets into Christmas spirit with charity activities
Released on: January 12, 2012, 6:29 am
Three UK community projects received early Christmas presents thanks to employee benefits and motivation experts Edenred.
As part of the company’s ‘Eden for All’ day, all 243 employees across the three UK offices participated in a series of festive fundraising events to support community-based charities.
The London office donated food and clothing to St Margaret’s, a local drop in centre offering support for older people. Most of the elderly who attend the centre live alone and are on benefits.
The Pimlico-based office also collected toys for the Bayswater project in North London. The Bayswater project supports valuable families with housing issues or who are on a low income. They help and advise families in the local community to ensure their children are well cared for. The toys were then presented to the children as presents at their Christmas party.
Edenred’s office in Chester also held a toy collection in aid of the Cornel Clyd project, which meets the short term care requirements of young people whose needs cannot be met in a family environment.
Andy Philpott, Sales & Marketing Director at Edenred UK, comments:
“The Eden for All day is an established part of the calendar and a great way to support local charities and get involved in the communities near our offices. The day forms part of our year-long programme of CSR activity and is a valuable way to motivate our staff and encourage team working across different departments.”
‘Eden for All’ is an annual event held across Edenred offices worldwide, in 40 countries and is part of a wider programme of events and initiatives that support and encourage bonds with local communities.
