PROUD TO BE MEMBERS OF HEART OF KENT HOSPICE'S '100 CLUB'
Netbox Digital and Netbox Recruitment are proud to be members of the Heart of Kent Hospice's '100 Club'. This highlights companies who have committed to raise over £1,000 each year to support the hospice's invaluable work in caring for those with terminal illnesses in the local community.
As part of this commitment for 2019, the Netbox group of companies raised over over £3,000 by embarking on a challenging 12.5 mile sponsored walk around the beautifully picturesque Bewl Water reservoir, situated between Kent and East Sussex. Some team members completed the trek in impressive times but everyone was relieved to reach the finish line knowing they had secured a fantastic donation for a very worthy cause.
The weeks leading up to the event saw a succession of donations to the Netbox 'Just Giving' page. The fundraising efforts were also further boosted by Netbox Recruitment's bake sale on the 18th October. This was supported by surrounding businesses in the village of Ryarsh and raised over £120 of additional donations. In total, just under £1,600 of donations were received which Netbox then doubled to reach an overall total of £3,196.
Paul Crewe, Managing Director for Netbox Digital and Netbox Recruitment commented, "Netbox have previously raised money for a variety of good causes but this was our largest effort to date to make a real difference for a very deserving local charity. We look forward to continuing supporting the Heart of Kent Hospice and their invaluable work".
Sarah Gilbertson, Director at Netbox Recruitment also commented, "Netbox fully embraced the opportunity support the Heart of Kent Hospice. It was wonderful to be able to generate additional support from local businesses and the team did fantastically well completing the sponsored walk with real energy and determination!".
