Fluids Ads were feeling festive at the end of 2018 with their annual charity day coinciding with Christmas Jumper Day on 14th December.
The leading digital display technology provider, with offices in Preston, raised £406 for both the Foxton Centre and Save the Children by donning their Christmas jumpers and getting away from their desks for the day.
On the day, employees joined in games of ping pong and guess how many, as well as indulging in plenty of Christmas treats. Instead of playing Secret Santa, staff also donated what they would have spent to the Foxton Centre rather than buying the traditional secret gifts.
A total of £304 was raised for the Foxton Centre and £102 for Save the Children.
George Dann, CEO of Fluid Ads said: “Being based in Preston means that we have close connections with the local community. Many of our staff live in the area meaning we have an intrinsic knowledge of the city and feel proud to be here. It was important that we were able to raise money for such a valuable charity in Preston.
“To combine it with Christmas Jumper Day meant we could also raise funds for what is an extremely meaningful cause for Save the Children. Our staff also had a lot of the fun on the day too.”
The Foxton Centre is a Preston based charity with a long history and commitment to working with vulnerable people – both adults and young people – in the local area.
They have been at the core of the community since 1969 and are a real anchor to the local population assisting those on the margins of city life in the Avenham district of the city. Their work sees them help rough sleepers, street sex workers and young people who often face problems with addiction, poverty and mental health issues.
Save the Children founded Christmas Jumper Day in 2012. The charity does everything they can to make sure children around the world not only survive but thrive. Central to their work is helping every child to have the chance to learn and be able to make their mark on the world, as well as building a better future.
The Christmas Jumper Day is held every year in the UK just before Christmas with those wearing festive attire being asked to donate £2 to the charity for the pleasure of doing so.
