The EPE team raises £356.13 for Children In Need 2020!

The EPE team have been getting into the fundraising spirit for Children In Need 2020.

To raise money for this worthy cause EPE organised a dress down Friday throughout the company where employees swapped their work gear in favour of whatever they would like to wear for the day.

The team also took part in the Annual Children In Need Duck Race Sweepstake 2020; the competition was rife. With a 32″ TV kindly gifted by Redifussion up for grabs and the motivation to do some good for a good cause, everyone was eager to cheer on their pun-tastic duck to the finish line. Though in the end the duck known only as Quackman & Bobbin’ won the race, and Laura Anyon, Buying Assistant won the sweepstake!

In total the EPE team raised £356.13 that will go to the Children in Need charity to support disadvantaged children and young people all across the UK.
