Fantastic fundraising from Deloitte staff
In 2018, 11 Deloitte employees from the Internal Client Services Team took part in a range of challenges to raise money for unpaid carers.
One Million Futures aims to have a positive impact on the future of one million people over five years, by supporting them to get to where they want to be; whether it’s in the classroom, the workplace or the boardroom. And the wonderful staff at Deloitte have thrown themselves into fundraising for Carers Trust!
Taking part in challenges across the world
I’m incredibly proud to support the Working for Carers programme. Anyone could find themselves caring and many have to manage this responsibility alongside a job.”
Jess from Deloitte
Eleven people from Deloitte took part in the Deloitte Ride Across Britain, Great Glen Way Challenge, Stok Kangri Climb, Mount Toubkal Climb and Mount Kilimanjaro Climb to raise money for Carers Trust.
From 6–23 September, they joined hundreds of colleagues on these incredible, gruelling challenges that tested them physically and mentally, but they came out of it having achieved something amazing.
The challengers were supporting Carers Trust’s Working for Carers programme to help some of London’s 689,000 carers and former carers get back into employment. They've helped to raise money for a dedicated grants fund to support unemployed carers back into the workplace in jobs that are sensitive to their caring responsibilities.
We’re grateful to Robert Kiwanuka, Sairam Natarajan, Sam Hamdieh, Laura Henderson, Rosie Shepherd, Melanie Bastos, Dilesh Amlani, Graeme Clarke, Bryony Gibbs, Tim Pellatt and Peter Sampey who trained hard and contributed to the incredible fundraising result – over £25,000 was raised for Carers Trust including Gift Aid and match-funding.
Huge thanks to our brave Deloitte fundraisers! We really do appreciate your effort.”
Giles Meyer, Chief Executive, Carers Trust
This really was the most amazing thing I have ever done and probably will ever do, that I would recommend to anyone."
