REHAU pledges to raise thousands for Scope

REHAU has pledged to raise thousands of pounds for its chosen charity Scope, in a bid to provide vital funds to support disabled people and their families.

The team at REHAU will be raising money for Scope until the end of 2019 after choosing to donate to this particular cause late in 2017, when the whole company was asked to nominate a charity.

Scope was selected from four charities which were placed into a business-wide vote, with the REHAU staff explaining they saw clear connections between the values and principles of the two brands.

Scope aims to make this country a place where disabled people have the same opportunities as everyone else. By 2022, Scope will aim to directly reach more than two million disabled people and their families each year with information, advice and support, as well as campaigning for equality and fairness.

National and local activities have therefore been planned by the REHAU team across the country, to help the company meet its ambitious target of £12,000.

The variety of fundraisers will culminate later this year when more than 30 staff from across the UK will undertake the Three Peaks Challenge in September.

The challenge will involve climbing the three highest peaks of Scotland (Ben Nevis), England (Scafell Pike) and Wales (Snowdon) over a two-day period. Challengers will walk 23 miles across the three peaks with a total ascent of more than 3,000m.

Over 30 REHAU staff will take part in the Challenge from 7-9 September, from different departments and locations across the UK, Ireland and Italy.

A number of events have already taken place, with REHAU’s office in Slough hosting a stand at the Langley Carnival with a penalty shoot-out competition to raise money, alongside a cake sale and face painting, raising £156.

REHAU’s two production facilities in Blaenau and Amlwch also held a charity football match in Bangor, as well as a bouncy castle and face painter for children, stalls and refreshments, plus an auction to name the trophy. In the end the trophy was named The Anthony McNally Trophy in memory of the former shift manager, with the event raising over £850 in total.

Other fundraising activities completed to date include dressing up for the royal wedding, a quiz, a Grand National sweepstake and a World Cup day in Slough.

Sergio Fonseca, HR Director at REHAU, said: “Each year we support a charity as part of our CSR programme of activities, and this year our employees are going above and beyond with their fundraising efforts for Scope. Whether it’s taking on a huge personal challenge like the Three Peaks Challenge or making cakes for a bake sale, everyone is pulling together to achieve a common goal and there is a fantastic team spirit around the fundraising activities that is really special to be part of.

“We set ourselves a big target for Scope, and with the drive and enthusiasm of our employees from around the country, we should meet it by the end of the year which will be of huge benefit to the charity and its work.”

Katy Miller, Partnerships Director at Scope, added: “We’re thrilled that REHAU has chosen to raise money for Scope, and wish the teams the best of luck in their challenge. Scope can only do the amazing work that it does thanks to the generous support we get from our partners and donors. We’re working to drive change in society so that disabled people have equality and fairness, but to achieve that, we all need to work together.”
