Payday Express supports Make-A-Wish for their 25th Anniversary
December 15, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsConsumer finance provider Payday Express chooses a different charity to support each month, and this December it dedicated efforts to raising money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Make-A-Wish Foundation grants magical wishes to children and young people fighting life-threatening illnesses (make-a-wish.org.uk), and the charity is this year celebrating its 25th anniversary.
Sarah Carroll, operations manager at the fast payday loans company, said: "Staff at Payday Express are always great at pulling together to support good causes and this December has been no exception."
Throughout December, Payday Express organised a number of different ways for employees to contribute to the charity, including a Christmas party, a programme which allows staff to pay a pound to dress down on Fridays, and collection points for loose change.
Employees at the company, which provides cash loans until payday, contributed £5 towards the Christmas party, which gave them entry to the venue and disco, free food and drink, and chips for the casino tables. Staff were also able to buy additional £5 vouchers for casino chips on the night. All of the money raised on the night - £435 – will be donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Caroll added: "The staff were more than happy to link their Christmas party fun with helping to raise money for the fantastic Make-A-Wish charity, to be able to bring some joy to children who need a bit of cheer in their lives."
Other money raised from dress-down Fridays and collection pots will be collected and donated to the charity at the end of the month.
Payday Express administrator Kristina Winch said: "At Payday Express we are dedicated to helping important causes.
"We aim to involve ourselves as much as possible in areas where we can benefit the less fortunate."
