TeamJobs staff used their annual Christmas Jumper Day to benefit Dorset’s cancer sufferers.
Staff at the award winning recruitment company’s Poole and Bournemouth branches swapped business clothes for their best festive pullovers, in return for donations to Dorset Cancer Care Foundation (DCCF).
The DCCF was set up in Poole in 2012 and awards cash grants to cancer sufferers and their families.
Recent grants have paid for everything from much needed short breaks and special equipment, to household bills, travel costs and counselling.
TeamJobs was founded 15 years ago and has 24 employees handling all types of positions from short term unskilled roles to highly skilled permanent opportunities.
In 2015 it was named the Company of the Year in the Dorset Business Awards.
Jason Gault, managing director of TeamJobs, said:“TeamJobs love any excuse to dress up, especially at Christmas, so the chance to wear Christmas jumpers and help a very worthy, local cause was very popular.”
TeamJobs has supported DCCF throughout 2016.
Staff ran in the Bournemouth Marathon Festival for the charity and also attended its popular bowling night.
Jason continued:“Most of us have a loved one or friend whose life has been touched by cancer, so we are very happy to do anything we can to help DCCF’s work supporting sufferers in Dorset.”
DCCF Trustee Eve Went, said:“We were thrilled to hear TeamJobs staff were dressing up in our honour this Christmas and hope other companies might be inspired to do the same.
“We have enjoyed fabulous support in 2016 from a host of Dorset businesses including TeamJobs, but the more help we have, the more we can do to help people facing financial hardships because of cancer.”
DCCF would like to hear from other companies and individuals who would like to support the charity in 2017.
Eve Went added:“Whether you take part in one of our fundraising events, stage an event of your own, or even name us as your charity of the year, you will be helping people who are living with cancer where you live.”
