Human Capital Investment Group raises 3,000 during fundraising week
From Monday 15th to Friday 19th September consultants from eight businesses and 10 offices throughout the UK collaborated in a united effort to raise much needed funds for the UK's leading digital charity. YouthNet help over 1 million 16-25 year olds a year to develop the skills and confidence they need to tackle life's challenges – from finding their first job to coping with mental health issues.
Events included an online auction which raised over £600 during the week. The prizes which included a PS4, supercar experience and a hotel stay were kindly donated by IRPS, ICS, Zippy promos, NWM, Paysure, TJW and Umbrella.
Teams of consultants took part in a Stretch a Fiver Challenge to see who could raise the most money from just £5. Congratulations to a team from Proactive Technical Recruitment who raised £427 by buying some raffle tickets and securing donated prizes.
A team of 28 consultants from HCIG’s head office in London teamed up to ride to & lsquo;Brighton and Back’ on stationary bikes – a round trip of 150km. The team set to the challenge with such enthusiasm that they quickly smashed the target. After 7 hours the team had clocked up a whopping 444km making it across the Scottish border to Gretna Green – you can support their effort by donating here: https://www.justgiving.com/HCIG-Brighton-and-back
Other events included bake offs, tuck shops, bingo events, arm wrestling contests and a dress down day. HCIG will continue to fundraise for YouthNet until March 2015. Future events will include taking part in the Santa Run in December.
