This week Telereal Trillium staff tell us about their fundraising campaign for LandAid which made £24,000 to help vulnerable young people.
Following his induction as a LandAid Ambassador, Jonny Pitts, Senior Development Manager at Telereal Trillium was determined to make a difference. ‘Give a little Love to LandAid’ was born and a year later Telereal Trillium and its staff have raised and donated a grand total of £24,237.85 enabling LandAid to support more young people across the UK.
Lots of different activities took place – from baking cakes, running races, a silent auction… to a bagpipes serenade.
When LandAid launched its pro bono scheme, allowing partners to offer their professional services to LandAid’s clients free of charge, Telereal Trillium was one of the very first companies to sign up.
Last year our staff assisted homelessness charity Crisis in their search for a new property and negotiating the best deal and provided advice on leases and a grant application to Keyhouse, for which they were very grateful. Graham Mynott of Keyhouse said: “My thanks to James Tootell for his work on this: it is greatly appreciated and has been very helpful… A big tick for pro-bono work from me.”
We look forward to continuing our partnership with LandAid, supporting the new mission ‘uniting to end youth homelessness’ and encourage everyone to give a little love to LandAid.
