Employees at GI Group have, quite literally, taken fundraising to new heights by climbing mountains, jumping out of planes, running, rowing, cycling – the lot!
Staff at the recruitment and on-site HR specialists, have being ‘doing their bit’ to support our wounded, injured and sick, as part of a nationwide partnership across 72 locations.They have raised almost £7,000 so far.
Fundraising kicked off in July when a team of five completed the 3 Peaks Challenge well within their target 24-hour period. Not to be outdone, nine members of the Site Managed Services division climbed 3,650ft up Mount Snowdon over a particularly miserable weekend in September.
A bit of healthy inter-company rivalry is clearly all the incentive needed in the GI Group. The Apprenticeship Programme Team took on the challenge of travelling from the UK Head Office in Chesterfield to the company HQ in Milan, Italy. The team of 10 accumulatively ran, cycled, walked, rowed and swam the distance of 961 miles between July and September. An incredible effort by all!
GI’s support for Help for Heroes is part of the group's ongoing company-wide commitment to corporate social responsibility, which aims to improve the prospects and lives of those in the communities in which they operate. Thank you to everyone in GI!
