Macmillan coffee morning
We raised £60 for Macmillan Cancer Support by supporting the world’s biggest coffee morning on Friday 27th September.
Staff at Oriel Collections got together to raise funds for the charity that is close to our hearts. Staff members within the office and customers have been helped by Macmillan and the service they provide to people battling cancer and their families is second to none.
‘We understand how cancer can affect people’s whole lives – health, money, family, job; everything. And, after more than 100 years of caring, we understand that the most important thing is to treat people as individuals, not patients.’
We walked miles for Mind!
On Sunday 11th August, members of the Oriel Collections team walked 11.2 miles for Mind Charity, raising £796 so far for the admirable cause.
Oriel staff members have started a new initiative called ‘Oriel, Making A Difference’, to raise money for a whole host of charitable causes. The passion shown by staff to organise and execute such events has been highly commendable and a great way to bring people together.
Mind Charity provides advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. Oriel staff regularly signpost customers to the services it provides. Oriel are aware that debt can be difficult to cope with and understand that customers may need some breathing space to speak to someone in regards to how they’re feeling. Mind offer an excellent Infoline for customers.
The walk looped from Oriel HQ, around Cheltenham, passing through the town centre towards Leckhampton Hill. Staff members of all abilities took part and completed the loop in time for a celebratory buffet back at Oriel HQ!
