To reach the ambitious target, the team has been collectively covering the distance between all its UK offices and assets by setting themselves personal challenges to run, walk, cycle and spin, clocking up over 2,500 kilometres. The team also got creative, baking, making jigsaws, and doing daily yoga challenges to help achieve their goal.
With an initial target of £5,000, the efforts have paid off, resulting in 200 people donating a total of £10,000, and a fund match of £10,000 from Frasers Property UK.
FareShare is the UK’s national network of charitable food redistributors, made up of 17 independent organisations. Together, they take quality surplus food from across the food industry and deliver to almost 11,000 frontline charities and community groups.
Nichola Wilson, Corporate Partnerships Manager at FareShare said: “FareShare is so grateful for the support of Frasers Property UK at this challenging time. Raising £20,000 is a fantastic achievement and will help us provide 80,000 meals to people in need. The number of charities who have applied to receive food from FareShare has more than tripled in the last few months and this support will help us reach more vulnerable people.”
CEO of Frasers Property UK, Ilaria del Beato commented: “At Frasers Property UK we are fortunate to have a fantastically innovative and collaborative team that can come together to support not only each other and the company, but local communities too. FareShare is an outstanding charity that supports some of the most vulnerable people in society and has gone the extra mile to continue that support in what are unique and challenging circumstances. I am very proud of the team for this latest fundraising effort and very grateful to all of our sponsors.”
