DELIVERING SCHOOL BAGS TO 800 CHILDREN

Last month we launched our enhanced Corporate Social Responsibility Program with a carefully organised fundraising day for School in a Bag.

Results from our New CSR Program Launch

The launch day was a fantastic success with the whole business getting directly involved in packing bags for the charity alongside other fundraising activities.

After such a postive event we are pleased to announce that we successfully achieved our agreed sales target for the day, which resulted in us delivering a contribution of £10,000 to School in a Bag, from the day’s sales alone.

Plus, with a number of our customers and suppliers kindly donating to the cause, as well as employees making personal contributions on our JustGiving page, the final total raised was £12,650.

Last week some of the Blake team met up with the School in a Bag team at their Headquarters and presented this to them.

Further planned activity with School in a Bag

During October we will be travelling to Romania to deliver the 200 bags we packed on the day to children there. Then with the balance of the funds we hope to deliver a further 600 bags to children in Zambia before the end of the year.

We are so incredibly grateful to everyone who donated and got involved with the day. The truly fantastic results of the launch event mean that now 800 children will have the materials to learn that they would never have done without our help.
