We recently asked staff to choose charities that they'd like to raise money for and nominate as the charity of the month. Every month, we'll be collecting money for a different nominated charity through a dress down day, dedicated to that charity of the month.
Staff nominated charities that were personal and close to their hearts; due to the high volume of nominations, the final 12 charities were chosen from a random draw.
February's dress down day was in support of Dementia UK, a charity that provides nurses and support for families and individuals affected by dementia. Staff swapped suits and blouses for jeans and jumpers, and in doing so raised £268.50 for the charity.
