our way works for lots of other people, too.
We put the fun in fundraising and throw ourselves into all sorts of activities to help charities and good causes. You bet we're proud to make a difference. In 2016 we partnered with Teenage Cancer Turst to raise almost £50,000 for the young person's cancer Charity.
The Great Charity Pitch - Our 2017 Partner
Every year we choose a different charity to support by asking our colleagues to tell us who they would like to see Sky Betting & Gaming support. We then ask the people who suggested them to stand up in front of their colleagues and pitch for the cause that's closest to their hearts.
It's always a difficult decision. But this time around, Heather's pitch for Give A Duck won the hearts of the many and secured the majority vote. In addition to an action-packed calendar of fundraising initiatives, our eager volunteers will also offer their time and expertise in social media, event management, video production, web development, marketing and SEO to help the charity grow.
Give A Duck
Give A Duck, a tiny charity established in Leeds provides play therapy using specially designed Chemo Duck comfort toys to help children diagnosed with cancer to learn about how their treatment is administered. The new annual partnership is set to build on the grass roots Give A Duck initiative to ensure every child suffering with cancer in the UK has a chemo duck, so they can be shown by a specially trained play therapist what to expect when they start their cancer-fighting treatment.
Richard Flint, Sky Betting & Gaming’s CEO, said, “This is the second year of competitive employee pitches on behalf of some of our favourite charities and I think what has captured people’s hearts - and votes - with Give A Duck, is the opportunity to not only fundraise, but to use our business skills to give a lasting boost to a fledgling charity.”
"We work in an open plan office and I think one advantage of that is that everyone's accessible from director level all the way down."
