Easter Comes Early With IT Talent’s Charity Drive For Barnardo’s
28th March 2013 · Kevin Howes
Following our Comic Relief costume antics a few of weeks ago, we dusted off our bunny suits as part of our Easter charity drive for Barnardo’s children’s charity (any excuse to dress up!)
With the help of some of our clients we tasked ourselves with the collection of over 200 Easter Eggs which are being distributed to four Barnardo’s children’s centres in London and Berkshire today.
At IT Talent we contribute to several charities throughout the year, but Barnardo’s is of particular significance for us as our Director’s Great-Grandfather was admitted to the care of the Dr Barnardo’s children’s home Stepney Causeway in 1890 at the age of 6, and remained in their care for 10 years before emigrating to Canada.
A special thank you also for the cracking egg contributions (excuse the pun), from our client’s:
- Visit Britain
- FST Marketing
To further our contribution; the brigade of bunnies braced the blizzard and took to the city to raise some much needed funds for the charity, with a total donation of over £500.
The work of Barnardo’s depends on the generous support of local organisations and in donating Easter eggs to nearby centres we know that our contribution is making an immediate difference to children locally.
