Sussex accountancy, business advisory and financial services firm Kreston Reeves has held its own RAG (Raise And Give) month raising an impressive £2,409 for its local designated office charities and Save the Children UK in December.
The corporate social responsibility team at Kreston Reeves organised the RAG month – more commonly associated with university and college students and the annual RAG week – to inspire and extend the firm’s charitable fundraising throughout the festive period.
The firm held several fundraising activities all with a festive twist including a winter hamper raffle, taking part in the National Christmas Jumper Day, a festive quiz, a reverse advent calendar, and donations to take part in Fizzy Friday – where team members could enjoy some mince pies and a glass of Bucks Fizz.
James Peach, Audit and Assurance Partner and Head of the Corporate Social Responsibility committee, said: “All in all, the introduction of the inaugural RAG month across the festive period was a great success and it will return in 2019.
“We are thrilled to be able to do our bit for the community and our local CSR representatives continue to drive the support of our local charities in as many ways as possible. We are committed to being good neighbours and supporting charities, not for profit organisations and schools through the insights and expertise we can offer.”
