Team members from Webhelp UK’s Rothesay site have raised more than £200 for local community group, Light Up Bute.
The team held a sponsored ‘dress down’ month in August to raise the funds for the Isle of Bute community initiative, whose mission is to inject fun into island life with events for children and adults.
Established in 2013 by locals Grant Graham and Alex Simmons, the group has already held events to mark Easter and the May Bank holiday, a fancy dress parade for the Glasgow Fair and a charity football match.
The money raised by the Webhelp team will go towards funding a fireworks spectacular and mini festival, ‘Rock the Prom’, featuring local acts and a fun fair, at Rothesay Prom on Saturday 8 November.
Later this year, Light Up Bute will also take the helm at the town’s annual Christmas Fair on Saturday 20 December.
Peter Cumminskey, Webhelp UK Engagement Ambassador in Rothesay, said:
“Light Up Bute is a fantastic initiative which has already brought a lot of fun to Rothesay this year.
“With the fireworks display and Christmas Fair just round the corner, we’re proud to have been able to do our part to help support what promises to be even more fantastic events for the Island. “
