RY in the community

CR@RY is our internal initiative to make sure we practice what we preach when it comes to corporate responsibility. After all, we encourage our clients to be good corporate citizens, so it's only right we follow our own advice. Plus we're nice people, and giving a bit back is just a good thing to do.

In 2013 we have continued to develop our programme of charitable giving, supporting individual, team and company wide initiatives. A few of these are included here.

Continuing their success of last year, in November 2013 Team furRY did sterling work as part of a sponsored moustache grow in aid of Movember supporting various charities that focus on cancer related illnesses in men.

We have also raised monies for Comic Relief, the fight against Breast Cancer, heart disease and various Children's charities. To support this year's Children in Need we organised a day of silly activities, ranging from a raucous tea service to genteel cake baking. Our comittment to Kids Company has continued with various fund raising and events, including a donation in lieu of a Christmas Card this year. We also hold regular 'clothes swaps', donating surplus clothes to Oxfam and homeless charities, and individual RY'ers have shown their commitment to charitable giving through various activities including sponsored runs, walks, rows, and abseils. Some pretty hair-raising feats were undertaken.

In terms of pro-bono and "lo-bono" work we've created campaigns for Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSHH), supported the activities of Amicus who provide legal support for prisoners facing the death penalty, we've completed a full identity for a local primary school and helped nurture young talent by working with universities, colleges, schools and individuals to provide young people with valuable work experience, and we have helped the National Aids Trust in its fundraising efforts by helping organise its annual Spring Awakening.

Bottom line? We're a small business and we're not perfect, but we're sincere about doing our best to make the world a better place. That's fair enough, isn't it?

 













Movember 2013

The Movember campaign raises awareness and funds for charities involved in fighting male cancers such as prostrate cancer and testicular cancer. Always keen to rise to a challenge, a large number of sponsored moustaches appeared around RY during November, raising over £2,000. Congratulations to everyone involved.
