June 2015 - We promote volunteering opportunities to KPMG staff: The KPMG Charity committee and the Corporate Responsibility team are holding a drop-in/stand in their canteen over lunch time to promote volunteering opportunities and working with local charities. Patsy Stone, and another Trustee, Gill Reid attended with our stand to promote our work.
May 2015 - Chief Cake Tasters for KPMG Bake Off!: There was a lot of discssion between staff and Trustees as to who should attend the 'onerous' job of being cake tasting judges at the KPMG offices in May. Sadly, the Webmaster (staff!) lost out to the Trustees, and Patsy Stone attended with Gill Reid, one of our active Trustees. After tasting (at least twice - tough job but someone had to do it! ) a clear winner was declared based on presentation and taste. The Webmaster didn't even get a meagre crumb - but as she is dieting that was no bad thing!!!!
April 2015 - KPMG invite us to come talk to their staff:
March 2015 - "First Hour Salary" donations received: We are so pleased to have received another generous donation from our corporate partners raised from their 'First Hour salaries' fundraising campaign. We think that is such a great way for companies to raise rather a lot of funds for minimum effort. Thank you to all the staff who donated.
March 2015 - KPMG donates £1400: KPMG have made their first donation to us of a very welcome £1,400. Thank you to all who have worked to raise this sum. It is likely that this money will be used towards renovating our very tired, leaky cauldron of a bathroom at Cornerstone in the next few months.
December 2014 - Fundraising starts: Fund-raising efforts have begun with a monthly dress-down day on the last Friday of each month and a raffle at their recent Christmas Party.
January 2015 - First Hour Salary donation: As they entered the New Year, they held a 'first hour appeal' whereby employees were invited to donate the first hour of their January pay to charity.
December 2014 - We're chosen as Charity of the Year: KPMG Reading Office have chosen us as one of their two charities to support for the next two years. We are so excited to have recognition for our small charity by such a prestigious company. This year, all funds raised on this from the Reading office will go to us. Ad-hoc events are planned throughout the year, such as cake sales & sporting activities. We look forward to working with KPMG to make the most of their volunteering spirit.
