We’re really happy to share our three chosen corporate charities for 2023. Each is a worthy cause and we’ve been reading about the amazing work they do. For every new or renewed client contract, we’ll give a percentage of that income to one of the three charities – even though as a team we chose the charities, it will be our clients who get to choose who they donate to. This felt like a great way of giving something back but also democratising the choice.
For Christmas 2022, the Meet & Engage Team practised a “reverse advent calendar”, choosing to donate to the Leicester-based homelessness charity, Action Homeless.
In the first half of 2022, we covered the 1865.23 km between our office in Leicester and Košice in Sovakia as a team, by any means necessary (walking, running, cycling, dancing, ice-skating, and more!) – in aid of Lastovičky Košice, a window cleaning company who train and provide work for people experiencing homelessness in the city of Košice in Slovakia.
For our first quarter of 2021 we set ourselves the challenge of collectively walking the distance from Land’s End to John O’Groats (roughly 1,000km) – with a dog in tow! As a team we managed a total of 1,218km walked and smashed our target of £1000 raised.
Thank you to all our clients and partners for helping us to support our 3 chosen charities each year. In 2021, we raised £1,301 for Parkinsons UK, £1,904 for World Wildlife Foundation, and £2,071 for Magic Breakfast.
In 2022, we donated £20,000, split between The Trussell Trust, Crisis, and Alzheimer’s Society.
