SSW Coffee Club
10 July 2020
In the month of June, staff at Smith Stone Walters joined together to launch the SSW Coffee Club, a new fundraising initiative in support of our chosen charity, The Rainbow Trust.
As most of our team are now working remotely and many of our usual office fundraisers were unable to go ahead, we began to think of new ways to raise vital funds for The Rainbow Trust, whilst keeping our staff safe at home.
Now 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! The SSW Coffee Club invites staff to make a pledge and donate this money they are saving each week to the Rainbow Trust.
Whatever staff can afford to give, Smith Stone Walters promises to match each donation.
The scheme was a great success in June, raising a total of £584. In fact, the scheme was so successful that we have decided to extend it to July too!
In the first week of July, we have already raised £158. Check back next week to see if we can beat this again!
About the Rainbow Trust
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.
Our fundraising efforts have always been directed from within, by our staff. That’s why, whilst we all continue to work from home, the SSW Coffee Club has enabled us to join forces remotely to raise much needed funds for a cause we all believe strongly in.
A big thank you to all our staff who have pledged donations to this very worthy cause. Fingers crossed in July we can match the amount raised last month!
