Through a winning display of initiative, athleticism and creativity, Robert Walters Group staff raised £112,700 worldwide on our annual Global Charity Day. This year's charity day saw staff raising money for a range of charities such as Macmillan Cancer Support, Heppie, Oxfam, Japan Platform, the Capuchin Centre, Club Rainbow Singapore and Dress for Success, to name just a few.
Each year, Robert Walters staff show their creativity through their innovative fundraising efforts, and 2016 was no different. Fundraising activities this year included; chicken nugget eating challenges, hula hoop competitions, a combined effort to cycle 232 kilometres over eight hours, and a group of staff walking the length of London Tube's District line throughout the course of the day. We also had one member of staff cycle non-stop from 9am to 5pm in our courtyard in London (Pictured: Nick Hodgson cycling for Macmillan).
Giles Daubeney, Deputy CEO of Robert Walters Group, commented:
“We’re hugely proud to have the opportunity to raise funds for charities around the world and to help local charities ontinue to perform the vital work they do. I’m always extremely impressed at the level of creativity and dedication our staff bring to the charity day each year, and it’s fantastic that we’ve been able to beat our previous records for funds raised once again in 2016.”
