Charity of the Year campaign partnership raises over £5,000

Online System have wrapped up their Charity of the Year fundraising campaign with Jigsaw, Cumbria’s Children’s Hospice – smashing their goal by raising over £5,400, covering over two-and-a-half full days of hospice care

Online System’s fundraisers throughout 2018 included everything from entering the Great North Run and climbing Scafell Pike, to raffling extra leave and hosting regular ‘dress-down Fridays’, plus offering a smartphone as a prize for a local fundraiser – not to mention running a canteen in our staff kitchen! Their Christmas Party also doubled as a charity race night and was a big success.

Beccy Griffiths, Head of Service at Online Systems, said.

“Our approach this year was to keep plenty of small fundraisers on the go all year alongside the bigger events. It’s great to see how much it adds up when you bring it all together. There are so many ideas for companies to get creative with their fundraisers and it’s a great feeling to give back to your community and contribute a little bit to a really worthy cause.”

Natalie Bingham, Jigsaw’s Corporate Relationship Coordinator, said.

“We are delighted that Online Systems has been raising money in aid of Jigsaw over the last 12 months. The money they have raised really will make a huge difference to the care, support and activities provided to children and young adults across Cumbria with life-limiting illnesses. We hope the Online Systems team have had a fun and enjoyable year of fundraising.”
