Standard Life group yesterday launched its 'Give it Life' staff fundraising initiative in conjunction with the three charities chosen by Standard Life staff – Breast Cancer Campaign, The Prostate Cancer Charity and the Royal National Institute of the Blind.
The 'Give if Life' initiative challenges each and every staff member of Standard Life (and retired members if they want to take up the challenge) to give or raise £25 each, over the next year, for charity, which we hope will raise in excess of £250,000!
Marcia Campbell, managing director human resources and company secretary says: “The work of these three charities is very important to us. We are in no doubt that Standard Life staff will be able to raise funds in excess of the targets and have some fun at the same time.”
Rory White aged 19 who works for Standard life adds: “£25 isn't a lot of money to raise in a year, but if everyone does it we can make a big difference to the charities. I think it is a brilliant idea.”
