Fluid spread a little Christmas cheer
On Wednesday 9th December, Fluid decided to spread a little Christmas cheer to its teams with a Christmas jumper day to raise funds for The Trussell Trust – the charity who support a nationwide network of food banks across the UK. Sadly, due to the COVID-19 pandemic there has been an increase in distribution of emergency food parcels by 47% between April and September this year. *
Things are understandably a little different at Fluid this year too, as most of the teams are working from home with limited numbers in its office locations. However, the team came together, donned their festive sweaters, submitted their photos and donated much needed funds to the charity.
For their donations, each team member was entered into an internal game show – “Wheely Happy”, which was broadcast live on Zoom, names were picked from a hat and the lucky candidates had a chance of winning several prizes (and booby prizes) via a spin of the happy wheel!
The team raised a fantastic £520.00 match funded by Fluid, raising the total to £1040.00! As the donation is during the charities Hunger Free Future campaign, it means that all donations during December will be doubled, so an impressive £2080.00 is going towards the charities aim to build a future where nobody needs to go without the basics, this Christmas and beyond.
