The £250 breakfast launch
On 15 January we held our first event to kickstart the CSR:2020 project. With the promise of a free breakfast, there was a fantastic turnout and we managed to raise £250 from the firm providing a donation for each attendee.
We worked in the kitchen from 7am to prepare the breakfast, with the ‘firm favourite’ bacon rolls disappearing within minutes of being served! After a brief introduction by the CSR committee, we said a few words about the aims of CSR:2020 before handing over to hear from our partner charities. Zoe (CPSL Mind), Gavin (Centre 33), and Aarti (Papyrus) presented their causes to the tribe - it was really interesting to hear about the work that they do and how the money we raise will go to helping the charities provide crucial services to those suffering with their mental health and wellbeing.
We received great feedback after the event from both the staff and the charities, showing us that our hard work had paid off. We now look forward to our next event in February – watch this space!
We will be posting updates and photos from each of our 20 events throughout the 20 months. You can also follow @taylorvinterstribe on Instagram.
