Return on Investment Ltd from Nantwich have launched a new initiative to help support good causes, and are on target to raise £25,000 for 25 different charities and organisations this year.
Carole Salmon is the company’s Charity Co-ordinator, “We found that a lot of people here were raising money for good causes, and as a company we were being asked more and more to support local projects so my job is to co-ordinate everything and look for projects to get involved in. As well as raising funds, we’re keen to use our business and marketing expertise to help organisations in more practical and long-term ways”, for example, designing the posters and programmes for Shavington High Schools 2011 Christmas concerts.
So far, employees have completed 25 fundraising events including climbing Kilimanjaro, cycling London to Paris and the Race for Life with all 120 staff being involved in some level. Managing Director Nigel Sandiford says, “The idea came from our staff, lots of people were already doing various charity events, and one day one of our employees came into my office and said wouldn’t it be great if we directed some of the energy and drive here to good causes as well. And so we have. It’s amazing what can happen when people put their minds together.”
ROI also continues its commercial success, having set up in Nantwich seven years with just three staff they’ve grown to 120 already. They are now one of the largest employers in the town and the most successful marketing agency in the automotive industry, working with 13 of the world’s largest car manufacturers.
Carole Salmon, Charity Co-ordinator ends by saying, “If you’re a local charity or organisation, get in touch if you think we can help. We’re particularly keen to get involved with local projects”. Contact Carole Salmon on 0870 460 5474 email: firstname.lastname@example.org
