CHARITY STAFF IN KENT HELP BRING IN £37,000 FOR SPORT RELIEF

29 March 2012

Staff at the Charities Aid Foundation - which has its headquarters in West Malling, Kent - helped to bring in £37,000 for Sport Relief last week.

CAF employees raised £2,182 themselves, through a range of fun fundraising activities such as a mile run, ‘Strictly CAF Dancing’ and the ‘CAF Olympics’.

Over 70 CAF employees also volunteered to run a call centre at CAF HQ to field many of the thousands of calls made by the UK public to pledge money to Sport Relief on Friday 23 March - as the popular BBC TV programme went out over the airwaves.

They took over 1,000 calls and took £34,706 worth of donations in the process.

CAF, which is a national charity that exists to promote greater and more effective giving, employs around 350 staff at its West Malling site.

CAF Customer Contact Assistant Manager Hannah Brinning said: “I am thrilled that CAF has played such a full and active part in what is one of the biggest fundraising events on the calendar.”
