We’re hoping to have another fantastic fundraising year here at Smeg. We raised over £45,000 in 2015 and we’re aiming for even more in 2016.
2015 was a full of challenges both sporting and otherwise. Our wonderful employees rode bikes though Italy, ran the London Marathon and Raced to the Stones. They also organised ‘Cream teas in a box’, bake sales, company charity days, quiz nights and our own Come Dine with Me. All our efforts have helped fund important medical research to support children and babies with epilepsy, meningitis, cerebral palsy and brain cancer; the work they do is truly amazing and we will continue to raise all we can.
This year, we will be doing lots of fundraising activities, including bringing back our Italian bike ride, this time from Rome to Florence. In February and March, over 20 members of staff are being put through their paces at the hands of GB Coach Rory Coleman, all in preparation for an unknown fitness challenge. When we know what that is, I’m sure we’ll be looking for sponsorship to keep motivation high! Throughout the year, several members of staff are running both half and full marathons in Bath, London and Reading to name a few. And to top it off, we’ll obviously continue our in-house quiz nights and bake sales, all to raise that little bit more for Action Medical Research.
This is just the beginning, there’s plenty more to come! This page will be updated throughout the year with more fundraising events and activities, watch this space to get the latest news of Smeg’s charity tales!
