Team SSW launches
fundraising Coffee Club
5 June 2020
Staff at Smith Stone Walters have joined together this week to launch the SSW Coffee Club, a new fundraising initiative in support of our chosen charity, the Rainbow Trust. The first week of the scheme has been a great success, raising £125 in donations so far.
Here at SSW, we passionately believe in giving back to the community, and we take Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) very seriously. Our fundraising efforts have always been directed from within, by our staff. That’s why, whilst we all continue to work from home, we have been busy thinking of new ways we can join forces remotely to raise much needed funds for a cause we all believe strongly in.
Smith Stone Walters is proud to support the Rainbow Trust, a children’s charity that provides vital support for families with seriously ill children. Despite lockdown, the Rainbow Trust has continued working hard in the community delivering its essential support services.
Unfortunately, due to the current lockdown restrictions, many charities like the Rainbow Trust have been impacted by the lack of fundraising events and activities that would normally generate much needed income to help fund their services.
What is the SSW Coffee Club?
As we have been unable to hold many of the usual office fundraisers this year, we came up with a way we can support the Rainbow Trust whilst keeping Team SSW safe at home.
As we have all settled nicely into new ways of working, many of us have found ourselves with some spare change left over from not having to shell out on our daily commute, lunches and of course takeaway coffees!
So for the month of June, Smith Stone Walters staff are invited to make a pledge and donate the money they are saving each week by swapping Nero for Nescafe, to the Rainbow Trust.
Whatever staff can afford to give, Smith Stone Walters will be matching each donation.
At the end of its first week, the SSW Coffee Club has raised £125. Fingers crossed next week we can match this amount, or more! Watch this space.
