Agiito smashes charity fundraising targets

Agiito’s Community Team has contributed £35,239 worth of volunteering, gifts and charity fundraising to date.

Following a charity partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support in 2022 to April 2023, where the business raised £11,710 from activities like hikes, car washes, cake sales, sponsored shaves and a fashion show, Agiito has now raised £4,461 for The Trussell Trust, its charity partner for the remainder of 2023. 

Staff each have an annual ‘volunteer day’ allocated, racking-up over 590 hours of volunteering so far in 2023.

Kirsty Given, Director of Corporate Responsibility & Sustainability, said: “Making a difference is more than just fundraising, so we’ve adapted our approach this year by becoming closer and more connected to projects, through volunteering and appealing for much-needed donations. 

“It’s fantastic to see the amount of volunteering increase year-on-year, which also benefits our employees as they can meet new people and develop new skills.”
