On Friday May 5th, the Industria Team was one of many companies to take part in Gem’s Superhero Day in support of Cash For Kids, a charity that helps disadvantaged and underprivileged children in the East Midlands. We had many visitors throughout the day and everybody that came into the head office got into the fundraising spirit – We raised a total of £305.48!
There was a coupled effort between online donations and in-branch efforts, online donations reaching £125 and in-branch donations reaching £180.48. We had a variety of different superheroes make an appearance in the Industria office throughout the day, including Catwoman, Wonder Woman, Mrs. Incredible, She-Ra, (Super) Mario and one superhero in training!
We held a variety of events, including guess the superhero, guess how many sweets were in a jar, a bake sale and a raffle with a variety of prizes. The winner of the raffle will be announced on our Facebook, Twitter and website later this week, so keep your eyes peeled!
We got some great photos and had a good time fundraising over the course of the day (the table of cakes was looking considerably emptier at 5pm). We were also fortunate enough to have a couple of shout-outs on the Gem radio station about our fundraising efforts! We are always looking for ways to help out in the community and to raise money for important causes and we are proud to share the success of our superhero day fundraiser.
