We celebrated Bonfire Night early this year at School Trends. The Social Committee Team treated staff to sweets throughout the week and the Operations Team organised a no Trick but Treat lunch today. The lunch was to raise money towards the purchase of a defibrillator for School Trends.
The sweets kept on arriving throughout the week on employee’s desks when most local schools are on half term break. The Social Committee Team at School Trends is to encourage engagement with our employee’s which helps the business achieve its goal of ‘commitment to excellence’.
The lunch was organised by Alan Edwards, Continuous Improvement Facilitator and Vicky Longthorne, Quality Control Officer. Employees purchased a Hot Dog or Jacket Potato and dessert for £3.50 with all proceeds donated to the defibrillator. Vicky raised additional funds through raffling off a delicious chocolate cake won by Lauren, Customer Support Officer. In total the activities raised £200 towards the defibrillator.
The defibrillator will be available for the 125 staff in the business and also the local community. This life saving machine works by using a moderately high voltage to pass an electric current through the heart and they are simple to use.
Paul Waugh said “I loved the lunch and couldn’t resist seconds, I’m new to School Trends and love the culture and customer focus that we have here”.
