Case Studies

 

This has been a busy year for The Sourcing Team which has seen us reach into the community more than ever before!

We have increased our support in sustainable and ethical areas as well as maintaining links with our favourite charities.

Here are some of the highlights:

Once again we decided to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support as our main fundraiser of the year.  This year we linked this with Promotional Products Week and with the aid of our wonderful Supply Partners we were able to produce limited edition merchandise to give away whilst collecting money for the charity. We enlisted the help of Dan Jones, a student at the University of East London to create an eye-catching design combining the pink of The Sourcing Team and the green of Macmillan Cancer Support!  The team continued the theme with pink and green wigs and bright pink T-shirts to brighten the London Underground stations of Bank and Monument on a gloomy September day.  We raised an incredible £1,415 for Macmillan and increased the profile of promotional products across a wide range of commuters and other travellers.

We also continued our support of One Life www.onelifeuk.org/onelifeuk/ and the Shooting Star Chase Hospice via the Paul Strank Roofing Charity Gala 2013.

 

However making a difference in the community is not all about money – giving time is often just as beneficial.  This year Gill has invested a number of hours in mentoring activities (via the University of East London and WeConnect) and as a keynote speaker at events she has helped encourage and inspire women to achieve their goals.

We attended a fund raiser for the Commonwealth Countries League Education Fund (CCLEF) and contributed a lovely bag containing lip gloss and pink pen for the event goody bags – “dedicated followers of fashion!”

For 2014 we are looking to involve the team in events that help improve the local community - watch our blog for more news!

As the year drew to a close we decided, in lieu of Christmas cards, to donate a sum to Trees for Cities – an independent charity, which inspires people to plant and love trees worldwide. www.treesforcities.org
