Reed is a global business and I operate from the Norwich branch as a Human Resources Recruitment Consultant. Reed support three main charities; Ethiopiaid, The Big Give and Womankind Worldwide. This is on a global scale and here in Norwich, we wanted to raise funds for a local charity and something close to home.
The idea of raising money for the PBL Support Group came from our partnership with James Kidd at Mills & Reeve who are supporting you as their Charity of the Year. We wanted to combine our work with doing something for the community so in December, my former business manager and I (Neil Fisher, who has since moved to the NHS to become the NNUH Recruitment Manager) set ourselves a challenge to see as many clients for a little Christmas visit as we could in a day to deliver mince pies and spread the festive cheer. For each client meeting attended, Reed would
donate £5 to the charity. We embarked on this journey and 12,000 steps later we completed our day. We had immense support from our clients as they knew we were rushing from pillar to post to cram in as many meetings as possible, in order to maximise our funds. We completed 30 visits and managed to gather further donations from our wonderful colleagues too.
