Since 2012, when we launched our Charity Partner Scheme, we have worked tirelessly to fundraise for the several charities we have partnered with. Each year a new charity is chosen for ACS to focus on and every time our colleagues work together to raise awareness and money. The Charity committee are very motivated and passionate and have organised many successful events and collected many donations. To date we have raised over £110,000.
At ACS we like to think outside the box when it comes to raising money for Charity. No task is unachievable as we aim high with our fundraising targets. We raise money with a wide range of activities; from bake sales, marathons and fancy dress days to the more daring activities such as chest-waxing and mountain climbing. We also undertake companywide challenges and have a week every year where we compete in teams to raise the most money.
Since 2012 when we launched our charity partner scheme, we are proud to have raised over £110,000 for our charity partners.
