Contact centres across the country answered calls from Children in Need, taking thousands of pounds of donations to help make a difference to children and young people. Other call centres raised money through bake sales and fancy dress. Check out the stories and photos below.
Children in Need #FunDayFriday #AscensosFundraisers
We had a sea of yellow and spots at Ascensos today as we celebrated Children in Need! What an effort from our teams in #Motherwell, #Clydebank and #IsleofWight!
Well done to all of our lucky colleagues who won our raffle prizes and a massive THANK YOU to all of our fabulous cake bakers for all of their time and effort supporting such a worthwhile cause! #CiN
