We have plans in store to raise funds for charity, but want to hear who you think is most deserving of donations over the next 12 months.
Giving is nothing new at Outwrite.
For example, our senior administrator Jane Jackson made a splash in aid of children’s charity Whizz-Kidz by swimming 1,400 lengths, equivalent of the Irish Channel, at her gym in Chester.
I ran the Santa Fun Run in 2012 in aid of Ty Gobaith Children’s Hospice, and am currently helping my former primary school, Ysgol Pen Y Bryn in Colwyn Bay, put together a souvenir yearbook to commemorate its silver anniversary.
PR consultant and animal lover Sue Ormesher will soon be lending a hand with some work at Heswall Animal Rescue, while Anthony Bullick has done similar work for his home-town rugby league side, the Nottingham Outlaws. As you can see from the picture, he also abseiled down a hospital on behalf of the club for CLIC Sargent.
As a company, Outwrite has also worked in partnership with several charitable organisations.
Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is by no means a new idea, but is something all businesses should be looking to incorporate to some degree.
By publicising efforts to meet your social responsibilities, your company can embrace its role as a responsible corporate citizen, as well as attracting positive headlines that re-affirm your commitment to improving the locality of your business.
If there is a charity close to your heart, or you know of a good cause that deserves to be championed by the Outwrite team over 2013, let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org before April 1.
We will be announcing our charity of choice in our next newsletter, along with details of our first fundraising mission.
