We support many charities and events and this year we decided to do our bit for Children in Need. During the week leading up to the Children in Need fundraising night we pledged to donate 50p for each new twitter follower.
This fundraising event raised £132.00 for Children in Need and saw 264 new followers on Twitter.
We would like to thank all our new followers for their support in this campaign and hope that if we do the same next year we can beat this total.
It’s that time of year where it’s perfectly acceptable to bathe in a bathtub full of beans, watch your teacher get their legs waxed or see your favourite celebrity doing something dangerous on ice. BBC Children in Need reaches a climax on Friday, 19th November after a month of fundraising and campaigns around the UK.
Children in Need helps to improve the lives of disadvantaged children and young people through grants, projects and campaigns. Millions of lives are affected and improved by donations raised from individuals and organisations each year, as Pudsey the bear and a host of celebrities help us try and beat the previous year’s grand total. This year Children in Need attempts to top the record breaking total of £39 million raised in 2009!
Here at Safelincs we thought about getting into a bathtub of beans or having our legs waxed, but we’re far too busy saving lives with our fire safety products and services to do that, so we have instead decided that we will work with our friends to raise some money. This is where you come in!
We use Twitter to keep in touch with our customers and friends around the world. Starting today, we’ll donate 50p for every new follower we get on Twitter. That’s it! So why not head over to our Twitter page and follow us right now? We are keeping track of how much money we’ve raised on our Children in Need page on our web site.
