How CSR and fundraising increases employee engagement

Our employees will be involved in a new fundraising challenge every two months in support of several local and national charities carefully chosen by people within the business. Treetops Hospice Care, Nottingham Framework, Cancer Research UK and Guide Dogs for the Blind are some of the valuable charities we will be raising much-needed funds for.

Making a real difference

At Midland Fixings, we’ve raised over £60,000 for various charities with donations going to the Rapid Relief Team, Nottingham Hospice, Macmillan Cancer Care and Help for Heroes in the last two years.

In 2017 alone, we raised £35,000 for several of our partner charities helping vulnerable people in communities across the country or those in need of vital support.

What to expect in 2018

To kick off the Midland Fixings 2018 fundraising efforts, 6 brave members of staff will be taking on our very own version of the Man vs. Food challenge in aid of Alzheimer’s Research UK. The team will be given 60 seconds to consume as much as they can on Friday 9th February. To donate or find out more, click here

As we move into spring, a team of keen – and not so keen – cyclists will pedal the Pennines in a 350km cycle challenge to raise all-important funds for Breast Cancer Care. The team have already been busy training (some more than others) and we can certainly expect some tired legs in the office after their cycle on 7th and 8th March.

A few words from our managing director

Here’s what our managing director, Adrian Fowler, had to say about our 2018 fundraising campaign:

“As a family-owned business, we feel it’s important to promote a sense of community within the company and a CSR programme is a great way to bring people together. The staff have come up with all the fundraising challenges, chosen the charities and everything is going to be completely run by them. It’s fantastic to see so many of our team getting behind these causes and making a real impact in communities across the UK.”
