Wear Your Pyjamas to Work Day for Children in Need!
On Friday, for Children in Need, our staff came to work dressed in their Pyjamas in an effort to raise money for the BBC's corporate charity that helps ensure every child in the UK is safe, happy, secure and has the opportunities they need to reach their potential.
About Children in Need
Children in Need work closely with a whole range of organisations to understand where the need is greatest, ensuring the money raised goes to supporting the young people that need it most.
They fund over 2,500 local charities and projects which directly support children and young people in communities right across the UK.
Supporting children and young people who are affected by a whole range of disadvantages such as poverty, disability, illness, distress or trauma. They also work with a range of partners to tackle some of the most pressing issues facing the UK’s children and young people today, including: mental health and wellbeing, violence impacting young people, child sexual exploitation, holiday hunger; access to employment, and social injustice.
Cosy day at the office
Our employees brought a whole new meaning to casual Friday!
Each member of staff donated £2 towards Children in Need, and in return? A very warm and cosy day at the office, perfect for a cold winter morning.
We have an amazing team here at Acorn and it was great to see everyone getting involved and supporting a charity that does so much for children up and down the country. Well done A team!
