Team TotalKare raises over £300 for Discover U

The TotalKare team has been getting involved in a variety of fun activities within the office throughout 2018 in order to raise money for local charity Discover U.

Discover U works to help people with barriers into employment. These include adults with a level of learning or physical disability who are keen to get into work and maintain a job or career. The charity supports those in need with a wide range of programmes and opportunities to facilitate them in to work, including teaching a range of practical and transferable skills and providing work experience to build confidence.

Numerous fundraising activities

The charity was selected by TotalKare following suggestions from colleagues and will benefit from the proceeds of numerous fundraising activities conducted over the course of the year, which included mufti days, raffles and more. Finance Assistant Dan Rowbottom was particularly pleased as his grandfather is heavily involved with Discover U.

The total donated for 2018 was £311.70.

Opportunity to buy new tools and materials

Steve Smith, General Manager at Discover U said “Small charities like Discover U rely very heavily on donations from companies like TotalKare to enable them to continue to operate and provide a service to people in our borough. Such generosity provides us the opportunity to buy new tools and materials that otherwise we would find it difficult to purchase, so new funds to help us develop our enterprise are gratefully received by everyone in the Discover U family.”

Steve Braund, Marketing Manager for TotalKare, said “Discover U does tremendous work in the local community to support individuals in leading a full and happy life. We enjoy our fundraising activities at TotalKare and it is a pleasure to see the monies raised in 2018 go to such a worthy cause.”
