What We Do For Charities
At Utility Bidder, we take pride in investing in Charities. We often hold charitable events within our offices, as well as at events across the UK such as; charity bike rides and the 3 peaks challenge.
Every penny counts for charities, which is why it’s so important to make as many contributions as possible.
Three Peaks Challenge
On the 8th September twelve employees of Utility Bidder will climbing the three highest mountains in the UK in 24 hours to raise money for Lakelands Hospice based in Corby. Setting off at 6am on Friday 8th September, the team will be making the long trip up to Glasgow to take on Ben Nevis, the first of the peaks. The ascent will start at 4pm and the clock starts ticking as soon as they step foot on the base of the mountain. Once complete, Scafell Pike and Snowdon will then follow, drawing to an end at 4pm on Saturday 9th September. This challenge is a test of endurance. It includes 24 miles of hill walking as each mountain is between 7-10 miles of trails. With views to exceed the £3,600 target, the team at Utility Bidder are already working on a fundraising event. On Friday 30th June, they held a race night at Corby Town FC for employees and company partners that will contribute to the team target. Utility Bidder moved to Corby in 2015 and many of the employees have since taken on many charity activities for Lakelands Hospice and Teenage Cancer Trust. Primarily dealing with business energy contracts, Utility Bidder work with SMEs on a national basis. James Longley, MD of Utility Bidder commented:
“We look support both national and local charities every year by completing challenges as a team. Raising awareness and funds helps these charities to continue offering much needed help to the public. Lakelands Hospice provides support for individuals and those around them during their final weeks of life. Their work is key to the Corby community and surrounding areas and we hope we can help them continue with their hard work through the money raised.”
