Senior leaders from global customer experience expert, Webhelp, have been out and about across Ayrshire in aid of the Crosshouse Children’s Fund in an Apprentice-Style challenge, with teams tasked with raising as much awareness and gain as many commitments of support as possible.

Webhelp employees engaged a wide range of organisations, including local businesses and community groups, who showed brilliant support for such an important cause.

In total, the teams:
• Placed 27 collection cans
• Secured 53 gifts in kind for auctions and raffles
• Put up awareness materials across 32 locations
• Received 48 commitments of support for volunteering and fundraising

The activities formed part of the Webhelp UK Senior Leaders’ Annual Conference, which they decided to do differently this year by combining team development with giving something back to the local community. There were 33 staff involved in total, from across Webhelp’s Operations and People teams.

Stewart Barnett, Managing Director UK Operations at Webhelp, said: “We have been blown over by the support of our local communities across Ayrshire for such a fantastic cause, and we are incredibly grateful for the donations and offers of help that local business have made.

“Our Webhelp staff showed fantastic initiative and team spirit to raise so much awareness, and we look forward to continuing to work with the Crosshouse Children’s Fund in the future.“

Shona Cardle, Chief Executive, Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity said: “We are proud to be extending our work to help children in hospital from across Ayrshire and are delighted to have such wonderful support from Webhelp UK.

“All of the money raised in support of Crosshouse Children’s Fund will be invested in Ayrshire, so it is very important for local people, businesses and communities to get behind this local cause. The team at Webhelp pulled out all the stops to help raise the profile of Crosshouse Children’s Fund in Ayrshire, and we are incredibly grateful for their efforts.”
