We’re delighted that the fundraising efforts from our Centenary year have continued, with a further 25 local and national charities receiving a £500 donation from our employees this year.
In the Shetland office, TL Dallas employees chose to support Mind Your Head and CRUK Relay for Life.
Mind Your Head is a charity which positively supports mental health in the Shetland local community, offering a range of support services. Last year, the Mind Your Head team visited TL Dallas Shetland to deliver a ‘Self Care Workshop’, which was very insightful and helpful to branch staff. We are already proud supporters of this charity.
CRUK Relay for Life Shetland is a biennial event which raises money for Cancer Research UK and takes place in Lerwick. The first Shetland Relay was held in 2006, and since then over £1m has been raised over just six events, a first for the UK as a whole!
CRUK is close to the hearts of many in the Shetland branch, with personal experiences of losing close friends and family to cancer during the past year. John Gear was also a huge supporter of this event and in his memory, T L Dallas have donated a trophy. This will be presented to the most committed and enthusiastic fundraiser, a lovely reminder and tribute to John’s tremendous efforts in Relay for Life.
