ID Does Giving Tuesday

Thu 1 Dec 2016 - posted by Nicola Mason

The sportsmanship and competitive edge of the Interdirect team was out in full force this week as many of us participated in the third annual #GivingTuesday.

After the sales of Black Friday and the online shopping boom on Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday was an opportunity for us to join forces with other local businesses and members of the public to support a key charity in the community. Running across the UK, #GivingTuesday it was an opportunity for some of the UK’s biggest brands, businesses and celebrities to have fun while raising funds for local charities.

Pumped up and ready to roll, the ID team joined like-minded people across MK to raise funds and awareness of the 1 in 5 children in Milton Keynes who are living below the poverty line, through charity MK Community Foundation.

Instead of slogging away at our desks, the team proved their sports prowess by taking the top spots at many of the sporting challenges – including our own MD, Nicholas Mann who won the Tobogganing Challenge! From iFly, where AM Nicola Mason won the most graceful flyer award, to rowing, football and bootcamp, the team were justifiably worn-out by the end of the day, but delighted to have participated in such a worthwhile cause.  Raising over £350 for the worthwhile cause,  we thank everyone who supported us.
