Cabot Financial gives Pudsey a helping hand
Cabot Financial has once again been chosen as one of the official call centres for this year’s Children in Need appeal. Employee volunteers will be manning the phones and taking donations throughout the night on Friday19th November.
This is the third consecutive year that Cabot Financial has supported the event. Last year over £220,000 was raised in public donations to the call centre at Kings Hill, West Malling. Cabot employees worked into the early hours processing donations which contributed to the overall total of a record breaking £39 million, all of which goes towards making a positive change to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.
Cabot Financial employees are fully committed to the Children in Need cause. In addition to being an official call centre for Children in Need, last year the employees organised and took part in a whole host of fund raising activities in the run up to the main event. These included ‘dress down’ and fancy dress days, a mile of pennies around the Cabot Financial building, book and bake sales and a heavily contested fuss-ball competition. Three brave male employees even had their head shaved for the cause, while the executive directors donned their aprons and served refreshments to employees manning the phone lines.
This year will be no different with a variety of activities organised surrounding the Children in Need event.
Ken Maynard, Group Chief Executive of Cabot Financial Group, commented, “We were delighted to have been asked once again to support the BBC Children in Need appeal. I am extremely proud of our employees’ willingness to give up their time to support such a worthy cause.
“Being part of the Children in Need fundraising activity gives Cabot Financial a great opportunity to contribute to the annual telethon that has become so valuable to thousands of disadvantaged children and young people throughout the UK .”
