Lifeboats Appeal

26th January is ‘Wear Your Trainers to Work Day’ to raise money for the RNLI. Luckily, here at Omni, Friday is dress down day anyway. However it hasn’t stopped me collecting £1 from everyone in the office (trainers or no trainers!). Today’s collection is just one of the many charities we support. Last year we collected money for Cancer Research, Breast Cancer Research and we even held a quiz to raise money for an orphanage in Romania.

I believe charity in the office is a really good thing, not only does it help to raise money for good causes but it can also help to build good relations with your colleagues. From a philosophical point of view, I also like to think that collecting for charity helps to remind us all of how lucky we are, even though we might be having a rather horrible day at work!
