Protection of people and places are at the very heart of our ethos and we have gone one step further, with a bumper charity fundraising year.
The team at Intastop, have taken part in a number of local and national charity initiatives throughout 2016 – some of which have been fairly straightforward like bake sales to one which was more challenging – climbing the Yorkshire Three Peaks.
It is so important to do things which support those that may be less fortunate and our fantastic team of people have really got behind our efforts this year all joining in and making their own special contribution in some way. The Yorkshire Three Peaks was definitely the most challenging but perhaps also the most rewarding for those of us that took part.
During the year our team has supported events held by Hallam FM and its Cash for Kids fundraiser, Doncaster charities Eve’s Trust and Laurie Jay Balfour and national events such as Jeans for Genes, Breast Cancer Awareness and Children in Need.
We ended the year on a high showing our support for Hallam FM Cash for Kids Mission Christmas by donating £1,000, holding a Christmas Bake Off, Christmas Jumper Day and our annual raffle to win an amazing Christmas Hamper. And to lend a helping hand, not just in monetary terms, five of our team volunteered to help with the present sorting at Hallam FM as it distributed gifts to children across South Yorkshire.
By the end of 2016 our team exceeded £2,500 from its 2016 fundraising activities.
We have had a lot of fun raising this money and already have our thinking caps on as to what our challenge could be for 2017. Thanks go to all our team, friends, family and customers for their generosity and for the time and effort they give to supporting these worthwhile causes.
