On Friday 13th March, staff from Taylor Made and Peach Technologies will join other businesses around the country as a centre to collect donations from the live Sports Relief TV show.
Inspired by the gruelling challenges undertaken for Sport Relief by celebrities such as Davina McCall, Eddie Izzard and Jo Brand, 84 staff members will be taking time out of their Friday night to collectively take donation calls from 6pm until midnight.
Ahead of the service desk take over, the team have taken part in the ‘Get your kit on’ challenge by wearing sports attire on Friday 21st February to raise as much money as possible in aid of Sports Relief.
Using the amazing power of sport, the challenge will bring the team together whilst raising lifechanging amounts of money for Sport Relief. The money raised will help to take on some of the biggest issues right here in the UK and around the world, from tackling homelessness to championing mental health.
The ‘Get your kit on’ challenge kicked-off from 8am until 6pm and was led by Kim Smith, Head of Telecoms Operations, who is also responsible for Taylor Made getting approval to be an official Red Nose Day Call Centre.
“We are super excited to be made an official Red Nose Day call centre. We have been overwhelmed with the number of staff that want to get involved and help such a great cause. We have also had staff members bringing in extra sports attire for the people that don’t have sports tops at home. At Taylor Made and Peach Technologies we believe in working as a team and the number of volunteers and commitment to the ‘Get your kit on’ challenge is testament to that.
Last Sport Relief, businesses around the UK helped raise £4 million; and once again they are being encouraged to go all out to help smash that total this year. To sponsor the staff at Taylor Made, go to www.justgiving.com/fundraising/peach-tmcs-sport-relief-giving-page
