When it comes to events and getting involved with some great causes you can’t beat B2!

Take a look at some of the events and worthy causes we’ve got lined up this autumn:

Genes for Jeans day – Friday 22nd September

We will be popping on our favourite pair of jeans for this worthy cause. Every penny you donate helps transform the lives of children with genetic disorders, funding care and supporting their families.

Take a lead from us and get involved, here’s why and how:

  1. It’s fun and simple to organise. All you have to do is ask people to come to work in their jeans and make a donation of £2
  2. It’s a great way to bring a team, a floor or the whole company together
  3. It can help to raise the profile of your organisation – highlight your fundraising in your annual report, on your website and in your local paper or trade magazine
  4. Staff will think it’s great – the boss will look good for letting you all wear your jeans
  5. Although, individually, genetic disorders are rare, together they are the biggest killer of children 14 and under
  6. Create a bit of role reversal and give the boss a ‘day off’ – sponsor him or her to make the tea or do the photocopying
  7. £350 will pay for a child with a genetic disorder to spend a weekend away with other children like them, supported by trained medical staff
  8. Wearing jeans and having some fun in the office gets the weekend started that bit earlier!
  9. Raising money on Jeans for Genes Day helps your company to meet its corporate social responsibility targets
  10. The fun and fundraising don’t have to stop at 5.30pm. Make a night of it, serve a ‘gene and tonic’ drinks trolley and hold a pub quiz or karaoke night at the local pub!

 

Jazz up your jeans and don’t forget to pencil the date in the diary! Watch out for the pics on social here

 

Macmillan coffee morning – Friday 29th September

 

Pop the kettle on! At B2 we are doing our bit by taking part in the World’s biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer.
