Gleeds Global Challenge 2016
Last year Gleeds celebrated 130 years in business by setting a challenge for staff around the world to fundraise £130,000 in just one week. Thanks to the hard work of our teams and generosity of our supporters, we raised an outstanding £242,661.72 for 89 charities. And we enjoyed it so much, that we’ve decided to make Global Challenge Week an annual event!
In 2016 we’ll be focusing our efforts not just on fundraising, but volunteering and staff wellbeing too. Our intention is to help build community - locally and with one another.
Our global network of 59 offices will be given 1 day off work between Monday 19th – Friday 23rd September to work together to make a positive impact within their local community.
This could include:
- Supporting a local community initiative or improvement scheme
- Helping a local charity
- Volunteering time and expertise to help out in schools, colleges or universities
- Hosting a health and wellbeing event
