Dearne Valley’s Webhelp UK raises £2200 for festive charity appeals

23rd December 2013

Dearne Valley’s leading customer experience management company, Webhelp UK, has made Christmas come early for five charities by raising over £2200.

Following a series of fundraising events, the team at Webhelp UK in Manvers, near Rotherham, donated to Sheffield ChildrenÂ’s Hospital, Bluebell Wood ChildrenÂ’s Hospice in Sheffield, Cancer Research UK, Help for Heroes and Hallam FMÂ’s Christmas Appeal.

The Webhelp UK Dearne Valley team took a creative approach to fundraising for the charities by organising a wide variety of events including a dress down month, selling home baking and participating in Hallam FM’s ‘Mission Christmas’ to provide Christmas presents for disadvantaged local children.

The Webhelp UK Ambassadors at Dearne Valley, who are responsible for organising local fundraising and volunteering, surveyed the team to determine how the money should be distributed.

Charity fundraising and local contribution is a vital part of the work carried out by Webhelp teams across the UK. Christmas can be a difficult time for disadvantaged people and the Dearne Valley team wanted to help as many worthy causes as possible.

Bluebell Wood ChildrenÂ’s Hospice in Sheffield has kindly invited the Webhelp Ambassadors for a tour of the hospice so they can see the vital work the hospice does for local children and the difference their donation will make.

Help for Heroes attended the Manvers site to collect their cheque from the Webhelp team and took the time to explain how the money would be spent and the importance of the charity to British service men and women.

Hallam FM invited Webhelp UK Ambassador, Chris North, to be interviewed on air about the work the Dearne Valley team were doing to support this worthy cause. The Webhelp team returned to the studio to deliver the Christmas presents they had collected for Hallam FMÂ’s festive campaign. Charity Manager for Hallam FM, Louise Davies, gave the Ambassadors a tour of the stationÂ’s site and explained the impact their contribution would have on local childrenÂ’s lives this Christmas.

Zoe Bateman, Customer Experience Manager at Webhelp UK in Dearne Valley, was responsible for co-ordinating the fundraising activities. Zoe said:

“The whole Webhelp Dearne Valley team has been so supportive of all five chosen charities and it’s been a great way for us to spend time together outside of work too. We’ve had some amazing feedback from the charities and would be honoured to accept their invitations to visit their sites and see the difference they make to so many lives.

“We’re already planning our fundraising activities for next year and we hope they will be bigger and better.”

Cancer Research UKÂ’s Local Fundraising Manager, Becky Dixon, commented on the work of the Webhelp Dearne Valley team. Becky said:

“We’re absolutely delighted that Webhelp UK decided to raise money for Cancer Research UK. The amount of money raised in just one month of activity is overwhelming and we are truly grateful to have been chosen to receive some of those funds.

“Cancer Research UK has made enormous progress in the fight against cancer and continues to do so. However, we have only been able to do this thanks to the dedication and commitment of our volunteers and supporters without whom we would not be able to fund our vital research.”
