Our Sunderland Recruitment team have been busy supporting local charity Grace House in June, as part of the NRL Group’s year of giving back.
Grace House provide short breaks for disabled children and their families, at their facilities in Southwick, Sunderland. The team have supported Grace House for several years now, with a range of fundraising activities including a Christmas jumper day and sponsored muddy obstacle challenge.
A blooming good way to spend a day
Keen to use the paid charity day NRL provides colleagues each year, members of the team switched their recruitment desks for the glorious garden at Grace House – volunteering to help out with the gardening.
Setting the fundraising stakes high
The team are also keen to set themselves some big physical challenges when it comes to fundraising. Amongst the fundraising ideas is Branch Manager Emma Lowden who will be taking part in the Great North Run later in the year for the first time, having taken up running during lockdown. She recently started a training programme with her local running club in preparation.
Anyone wishing to make a donation to the team can do so below.
