Screwfix will be donating the services of its large Contact Centre in Yeovil, Somerset to support the well loved BBC Children in Need appeal on Friday 17th November 2017.
Hundreds of employees from across Screwfix will be volunteering their own time to help take calls, from people across the UK.
From 7.00pm until 11.00pm, volunteers will be manning the phone lines in the company’s award-winning Contact Centre. Spurred on by a recent visit from Pudsey to the Yeovil Head Office, staff will be getting into the spirit by dressing up and partaking in games throughout the night, with generous donations of food, refreshments and prizes from local businesses to keep the volunteers going throughout the night.
Graham Smith, Marketing Director, comments: “Now in our twelfth year of taking calls for Children in Need, we are honoured to be supporting such a worthy cause for yet another year. Last year, we took thousands of calls from across the UK, showing just how generous people are when it comes to supporting Children in Need. We’re confident that we can help exceed last year’s total during this year’s fundraising drive, and I’d like to thank all those members of Screwfix staff donating their Friday night to help.”
“The business really gets behind this great cause each year and there will be a host of exciting fundraising activities and entertainment taking place on the night which will help to contribute to the grand total. We’re really looking forward to the evening and excited we can offer Screwfix’s support again.”
