London Offices Monthly Charities – The Power of Office Snacks
The ‘honesty fridge’, filled with bags of sweets, chocolates, crisps, pop and other indulgences costing either 50p or £1 is the engine behind the donations to charity.
The CEO of London Offices, Chris Meredith had the idea for the charity initiative as the company wanted to make a donation to charity on an ongoing basis, but ensure they could donate to a variety of charities rather than being ambassador for one. London Offices were also inspired by other providers who give generous donations to charities. As mentioned within our article ‘London Serviced Offices Strive for Sustainability’ the Shard charitably donates one meal a month through the money they save via recycling to FareShare community food network.
Business Environment Group’s CEO David Saul is also the co-founder of the charity Rays of Sunshine who grant wishes for ill children. Business Environment Group provides a range of serviced offices for differing businesses, many within the Liverpool Street area, and staff are regularly raising funds for this amazing cause.
Each month the money generated from London Offices’ honesty fridge sales are donated to a charity, usually chosen by suggestions from throughout the building. Within the last few months, donations have been sent to Guide Dogs for the Blind, St. Giles Hospice and the Salvation Army all thanks to our love of sugar!
This month’s chosen charity is Birmingham Children’s Hospital nominated by Zoe who works within the business centre for the fantastic care they provided to her young son Joshua.
She says, ‘The extra things they do for the kids including gifts and special people coming in to meet them, not to mention the sensory and play rooms, can make a dark time bright and they are more than essential.’
We are thrilled to be able to provide this amazing charity with a donation.
