Working for charity

Via our "Lend-a-hand" initiative, we encourage employees who are keen to support local charities.
 

Help for Hope4

Employees from CEMEX House in Rugby piled in to do their bit for local charity Hope4 which provides support for the homeless and those sleeping rough in the area.

Over a period of a week in December, teams totalling 20 employees went along to the Hope Centre to prepare and serve meals and clean. They also organised a collection through the office block which produced nearly £700 in cash plus toiletries to help the Hope4 cause which includes winter shelters at churches across the town.

They backed that up with a “pay day £1” collection which produced £250 in the first month. With support also from the Rugby Group Benevolent Fund, plus raffles, and a cake day, the total produced for Hope4 was £1,500.

The team was led by Readymix Central Team Leader, Tamsin Rodriguez who was delighted by the response from her colleagues. “It really opened our eyes in terms of understanding why people are sleeping rough on the streets,” she says. Everyone got behind it and the response was tremendous.”
