Last week ArrowXL colleagues from 5 hubs across the UK took part in numerous activities to raise funds for BBC’s Children in Need. The various events including Tour de AXL and the AXL Auction raised over £3,000 for the charity.
ArrowXL, the leading two-person delivery company challenged their employees to raise money for the charity through a number of events. The AXL Auction proved to be the biggest success with contributions from clients, suppliers, and local businesses. Employees raised over £1,600 through their generous bids.
Airdrie, Carrick, Enfield and Worcester sites all took part in the Tour de AXL completing a bike challenge that saw them cycle a total distance of over 1,200 miles. JTX Fitness, one of ArrowXL’s generous fitness and leisure clients, provided the company with all of the necessary equipment for the challenge.
A number of fancy-dress days, cake sales and raffles took place in the hubs up and down the UK, all helping to raise funds for the fantastic charity.
BBC’s Children in Need raise money throughout the year, and in their annual November appeal, to fund local charities and projects. Their mission is to help ensure every child in the UK is safe, happy, secure and has the opportunities they need to reach their potential.
Amber Hodson, Communications and Brand Lead at ArrowXL commented: “We were delighted to take part in BBC’s Children in Need once again this year. ArrowXL work closely with local communities throughout the year and it’s fantastic to be able to support projects that will help remove barriers facing children and young people.
“We’re very proud of our ArrowXL family. A lot of effort was made by everyone, whether they rode bikes, baked cakes or dressed up, and it clearly paid off – well done all!”
