Leading Sussex and South East financial services firm , Carpenter Box, is on target to raise more than £50,000 for local charities in its 100th anniversary year - thanks to the enterprise and efforts of its people.
From lobbing sponges at Partners, games nights and sponsored walks to dress-to-impress and comedy events, the firm’s staff have been pitching in to raise funds for local good causes.
It was in March that the Carpenter Box Charitable Foundation (CBCF) set itself a target of raising £50,000 and asked staff working groups to organise monthly fundraisers. June, for example, saw the LGBTQIA+ group arrange a staff speaking event and a ‘Gaymes Day’. July featured an inter-office adventure event involving staff from the firm’s offices in Crawley town centre.
