On 15 November 2019 DHU Health Care’s 111 call centres joined hundreds of thousands of people around the country to raise money for Children in Need.
Staff were dressing down, or dressing up in ‘spots’ with a donation of £1 put towards the charity. There was also a bake sale where colleagues brought in home made goods.
The call centres also took part in the national Children In Need ‘Duck Race’ with £2 donations being made for each duck and a prize for the winner.
Children in Need is the BBC’s official UK charity and raises money for disadvantaged young people around the country, such as those experiencing poverty, with disabilities, or victims of abuse or neglect.
Our Ashgate base in Chesterfield raised £90.87, whilst Derby’s Johnson Building raised £141.68 totalling and amazing £232.55 towards the good cause.
Nationally the star-studded BBC appeal raised a staggering £47.9 million.
