The Crabtree Property Group has been shortlisted at the 2015 Business Charity Awards which take place on Tuesday 19th May 2015.
2014 saw the Crabtree Property Group embark on a huge fundraising campaign to raise £30,000 for The Lullaby Trust to mark the 30th anniversary of the business. This was made even more challenging considering an average of £10,000-11,000 had been raised in previous years.
The charity effort saw great collaboration and engagement within the company and saw three main activities – the 62 mile London to Brighton walk, a 10,000 ft sky dive and Fun Day incorporating a 5km, 10km and children’s run accompanied by a number of fundraising initiatives from bake sales to poker evenings alongside individual external activities. Male staff even grew beards for a month to raise funds and awareness. Input from all levels of staff meant the Group not only reached the ambitious £30,000 target but raised a grand total of £33,150.
The Crabtree Property Group is amongst an array of high profile companies and being shortlisted speaks volumes of the collaboration across the company.
Robert Robertson, Crabtree Group Managing Director, said “This is a fantastic achievement and to be nominated is a testament to all of the staff across our Group who took part in a wide range of activities and donated during an extensive year of fundraising to mark the 30th anniversary of the business. I am very proud to be a part of this incredible group of people and I am delighted our achievement has been recognised by a third party.”
Lucy Tambyraja, Head of Fundraising at The Lullaby Trust, added “We are delighted that the Crabtree Property Group have been shortlisted for this award. It has been an absolute pleasure to have the support of such a dedicated group of people and their commitment to fundraising for The Lullaby Trust deserves to be recognised.”
