Text Santa fundraiser a big success

The Text Santa Event held at our offices on 18th December organised by Ben, Shaun and Jenny proved to be another successful fundraising event!  A total of £141.01 was raised for 3 amazing charities – Macmillan, Make-A-Wish UK and Save the Children.

The staffs amazing efforts will contribute to help:

  • Fund nurses, so people with cancer can get the support they need
  • Grant wishes to enrich the lives of children and young people fighting life-threatening conditions
  • Save children’s lives

“As per usual, the people from Cortech never let us down,” said Shaun. “We have raised a fantastic amount towards Text Santa and everyone had a good feast also!”

And indeed there were plenty of sausage rolls, nibbles and mince pies to go around!

It was great fun to see staff taking part and all for a good cause. Staff were asked to wear something festive for the day and amongst the Christmas jumpers and t-shirts, we even saw Sam dressed in a Turkey onesie, Jenny as the Christmas Fairy and John as one of Santa’s Elves!

Jenny also organised Secret Santa to be handed out on the day of the event. “You never know what you may receive from your Secret Santa but that’s always the fun part! A lot of thoughtful gifts were bought this year and they definitely caused a few giggles when opening them!”

Well done to Ben, Shaun and Jenny for organising another fun event and bringing the team together to make a difference once more.
