Angel Springs employees raised cash for the Make-a-Wish Foundation by dressing down on Valentine’s Day.
Staff at the water cooler supplier’s head office in Wolverhampton, and sales office in Hemel Hempstead, wore red clothing to work in exchange for a £1 donation for charity.
The event, on February 14, was just the latest fundraiser by Angel Springs in support of the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
The water cooler supplier recently pledged to donate £50 to the charity for each water boiler it sold. Customers who signed up at Christmas could also choose to have a cash donation made to Make-a-Wish on their behalf.
With these donations and the funds from an ongoing customer loyalty scheme, Angel Springs has raised more than £10,000 for the charity.
John Murphy, Angel Springs commercial director, said: “Angel Springs HQ was a sight to behold on Valentine’s Day.”
“Our employees embraced the opportunity to dress down for a good cause – leaving the office awash with red.”
“Red’s the colour of love, so it made perfect sense to run the event on Valentine’s Day. And the Make-A-Wish Foundation is a charity that’s particularly close to our hearts.”
“By the end of last year, we’d already raised more than £10,000 for the cause, and we’re confident that we can build on this success through 2013.”
“Our target is to raise a minimum of £30,000 during the first year of the Make-A-Wish customer loyalty scheme.”
The Make-A-Wish Foundation UK is a charitable organisation that grants wishes to children suffering from life-threating illnesses or life-limiting conditions.
It was established in 1986 and has granted more than 8,300 wishes to date, ranging from celebrity meet-ups to theme park trips across the world.
