Here at Think Global Recruitment, we take corporate social responsibility very seriously. With a vision of improving lives, we are always looking for ways to help others. This year, we have already sponsored a number of events and last month, six, brave members of our team took part in a 135ft abseil off Murrayfield Stadium.
It was a great day and with a target of £600, they managed to raise £790.50 for the Stroke Association. That is 132% of the original target and all for a fantastic cause! Here’s a photo of our team suited and booted in their abseil gear – hair nets included!
Over the next year (we have all split up into small teams) we are hoping to raise £2,500 for a charity called B1G1. This is a micro-finance charity that supports people starting their own business. It operates in many countries around the world and we have already donated enough money to provide 240 days of education support to disadvantaged children in Zimbabwe, hired a rickshaw for a month for 30 drivers in India, provided a lady in India with a sewing machine to set up a tailoring business and provided 1 life education program to a disadvantaged person in South Africa. We will be running a number of events to raise money and more than likely take part in some silly activities (like climbing the dizzying heights of Edinburgh’s rugby stadium and jumping off)…
We are really hoping to make a difference and improve some more lives this year so wish us luck!!
