Howdens employees often get involved and fundraise for charities throughout the year, however since 2014 the company as a whole are challenged to put in a special effort at a particular time of year;- the busiest trading month, October.
The Brentwood depot took up the challenge and for one day during that month they made an extra special effort by wearing fancy dress, baking cakes and offering refreshments to visiting account holders in return for putting some money in the collecting tins.
The challenge was a huge success. The depot raised a whopping £590 for the local children’s hospice Little Havens, which cares for children and young people up to the age of 19. The hospice offers a range of care options including respite stays, complimentary therapy and end of life care.
