I have supported a number of charities by giving money and supporting other colleagues activities. When I saw the UK Challenge article on the Interchange, I felt this was an opportunity to do my own fundraising.
After seeing presentations from the NSPCC, listening to their colleagues talk about how the monies raised are used and the differences it makes to children and families, made a difference to me. It helped to motivate me make sure I raised the amount I signed up to and come up with different ways to raise monies and share the message about the important work the NSPCC do with my colleagues. I shared this enthusiasm with the Challenge team.
This event has inspired me to do other fundraising and have just taken part in the Big Bike Ride for Save The Children and will certainly do something else next year.
