Regional Recruitment Employee's Fundraising Initiative
East Midlands based recruitment agency Regional Recruitment Services undertake a special fundraising project, that supports numerous local and national charities. The Leicester Recruitment firm has been an advocate for local businesses taking part in community projects and fundraising for charities. Most recently partnering with Alex's Wish in their mission to raise vital funds to save lives of young children and adults who have a condition known as Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. This involved some fantastic activities with the highlight being an 18,000 ft skydive which raised over £1,800 for the cause. However an upcoming campaign deserves special recognition, as the project was actually pursued by employee's of Regional Recruitment, in an ambitious fundraising initiative over the next 6 months.
CSR is a very important fabric of the Regional Recruitment Services' organisation. Which is why the organisation is tremendously proud of its staff to have undertaken such a grand project . It sees a collective goal of £2,500 over the course of the next 6 months, to raise money for charities close to the teams hearts. The campaign kicks off with 2 seperate activities, although equally as challenging.
Asda Foundation Leicester 10K
Engineering Team Manager Kishan Limbachya and Communications Manager Aaron Dupre have set their sights on completing the Leicester 10k run by The Asda Foundation. Both inidividuals have enjoyed training for this event as they set their targets to complete this course in under one hour. Ex-servicemen Kish Limbachya chose to run on behalf of Help for Heroes, which for those that are unaware support service personnel and military veterans with injuries, illnessses and wounds sustained while serving in the British Armed Forces. Communications Manager, Aaron Dupre joined us through our successful acquisition of sister compny, Big Bear Recruitment. Big Bear Recruitment have been operating for the last 5 years as specialists in healthcare, providing nursing employment solutions to care homes, hospices, hospitals and other medical facilities. For this reason Aaron had a natural affinity to raise money for Cavell' Nurses Trust, supporting a community our organisation is very much a part of.
"Working in the healthcare employment sector for the last 5 years, I have witnessed first hand the upmost dedication the UK's Nurses, Midwives and HCAs have for their career in supporting life.
A noble profession, that for the majority - stems from a deep rooted passion to support and care for others. I have come across some incredible stories of personal sacrifice and hardship, in order for nurses to continue with their profession. Devoting themselves to assisting either ourselves or our loved ones through the most challenging moments in life.
It's a pleasure to raise money for a cause and community that we are very much a part of."
