75 charitable acts to mark our special anniversary
Rawlinsons celebrated its 75th anniversary in April. Over those years we have shaped our services to meet the growing needs of the local community. We now employ 60 staff and look after the financial needs of over 3,000 clients – from established multi-nationals to business start-ups.
Much of that business is based in and around Peterborough and it is for that reason we decided to mark our 75th anniversary by completing 75 charitable acts in 75 days, starting on June 1.
It seems fitting that in this special year we should choose to give something back to local communities we have served. Our staff threw themselves fully behind this initiative to make a difference to a wide range of organisations and charities.
We completed a wide and varied programme of activities from a 75-mile static bike marathon to a human hound race at the city’s greyhound stadium; a cathedral abseil; 75km walk and taking to the water for the annual dragon boat festival.
Volunteering projects included getting Little Miracles ready for summer with gardening, painting and cleaning; taking over a lunchtime friendship group for Age UK; painting the monkey house at the Exotic Pet Refuge; gardening at Thorpe Hall and backing SHINE with some marketing survey support.
In total Rawlinsons raised £8,500 for our chosen charities and completed 344 volunteering hours during the challenge. Find out more about our 75 charitable acts in 75 days by clicking here.
