National Accident Helpline’s senior management team have done their bit for Children in Need by cycling 100 miles to raise money for the BBC-backed cause.
The 100-mile cycle, taking part on stationary exercise bikes at our Kettering call centre, is just one of a number of events that we hosted to help the charity attempt to beat last year’s impressive £26.75million raised.
Our other events supporting this great cause included a guess the baby competition, a delicious bake-a-thon, a fun inter-team team hula challenge and a silent auction.
Thanks to the generous donations from our staff and their friends and family, we raised £2,573.94 for Children in Need over the course of the week.
Our Managing Director Russell: "Our employees have been taking part in many activities to raise money for Children in Need 2013 and we thought it would be a great idea for the Senior Management Team to set themselves a challenge too. I am pleased to say we have smashed our target of 100 miles between 9am and 5pm.”
Speaking after his two 30 minute slots, Russell said “That was far harder than needed to be due to the competitive nature of my colleagues!"
