Sleeping Bags for Cork Simon Community
As part of our commitment to Cork Simon as our local corporate charity for 2017 Capita Customer Solutions looked at what we could do to support them and get help directly to those who use the services of this terrific charity.
We came up with the idea of a campaign to collect sleeping bags. The campaign ran from mid-August until end of September. In excess of 180 new sleeping bags were donated by teams and individuals across Capita Customer Solutions.
This week (Oct 02-06) is Simon Week and we felt it most appropriate to present the sleeping bags to Cork Simon at this time. Thanks to Trudy, Mark and Zebee of Cork Simon for visiting us in our Head Office in Clonakilty today to collect the sleeping bags. Trudy told us that these will be going straight to their city centre hostel where stocks are running low.
We are delighted to know that the generosity and commitment of our people will have an immediate impact on those who rely on Cork Simon and will help keep them warm and offer some comfort.
