2021 has been another tough year for charities but thanks to our employees for submitting their applications to the Charity Committee throughout the year, we have made donations to 8 local charities. Applications varied from employees taking part in organised golf and cycling events, volunteering & helping out with local kids football clubs and employees just wanting to give something back after a loved one or themselves have been helped through an illness.
Roll on 2022 and we hope to get another good response like 2021!
In September, through the RWG Social Committee we entered a team of 12 into the Beast Race at Knockburn Loch, Banchory. The event is an epic 10k obstacle course race over the toughest Scottish terrain! All the registration fees for the event went towards the Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland charity and we also set-up a JustGiving page for employees to also donate.
In December, RWG employees helped the local charity The Giving Tree by Instant Neighbour by buying gifts for children across Aberdeen City & Shire who wouldn’t otherwise receive anything at Christmas. We also donated selection boxes & gift vouchers for supermarkets, bags of toiletries and essential food items towards their food banks. The generosity from our employees was just staggering.
2022 Applications are now open and we are hoping to receive another great response.
