Charity at forefront of Go Native’s mind
In the past few weeks Go Native has been involved in many charitable events including Movember, Breakthrough breast cancer and Macmillan cancer support
As well as being involved in Serviced Apartments across the globe, in the past few weeks Go Native has been involved in a plethora of charity work in the past few weeks. We have been involved in coffee mornings, table tennis tournaments, raffles, themed bingo and multiple other charity related endeavours all to raise money for various different charities.
Before our 'pink raffle'
Last week the Go Native team across London, Manchester, Edinburgh and Bangalore all took part in a pink themed week in aid of breakthrough breast cancer, a charity that is very close to all of our hearts. We had days of pink bingo across the office with people frantically checking off words when not concentrating on serviced apartments, we had a pink raffle which involved popping pink balloons in order to get raffle tickets and we also had a pink themed table tennis tournament which was played with a pink ball. On Friday, everybody in the office also decked themselves out in pink including dashing pink wigs, tutus worn by certain members of the office over jeans. All in all we are very proud to say that as an office we managed to raise £345.00. As our original target was £200, we have decided to give the excess money raised to cancer research UK, to help support their brilliant work.
Part of our coffee morning feast
After feeling slightly emasculated with all of the pink-ness last week however, some of the men of the office have given their faces over to charity. They will be growing handlebars, pencils and anchors on their top lips to raise money for various men’s diseases. This is of course Movember, where men around the world will be letting their facial hair go out of control to look manly and also to raise as much money as possible. Although this cannot be as all encompassing as other charity events (as certain members of the team lack the ability to grow facial hair) Go Native is hoping to raise even more money than we already have for charities all around the world.
Most of the men in the office hope to look like this
But will more than likely look like this
These two events add to the Macmillan coffee morning that we had in September, in which we raised 158.00 for Macmillan cancer support.
In the office we believe very strongly in charity, which is why we have taken such an active interest in raising money in these various ways. We hope that we can continue this charitable feeling in the future and with the level of enthusiasm shown by all members of the team, this is bound to continue.
