As we start 2019 we wanted to celebrate a great 2018 partnering our company charity, Ambitious About Autism.
Ambitious about Autism is a UK national charity dedicated to improving opportunities for young people on the autistic spectrum, including those with autism or Asperger syndrome. They do this by providing services, raising awareness and understanding, and campaigning for change.
Over the course of 2018, we’ve managed to raise a fantastic £5852.31! The whole team at Just IT contributed through a number of different efforts. We had charity football matches, a sponsored marathon, a poker night, a darts tournament, a whole host of bake-offs, a world cup sweepstake and of course our dress down Fridays.
A few months ago, staff from Just IT volunteered their time on a company charity day, to help clear and tidy the community space at Kew Gardens. As well as being a great bonding experience in the summer sun, our team were delighted at the opportunity to help the Ambitious About Autism.
But that’s not all. At our Year-end Party, we held a charity auction. We’re delighted to share that from this auction alone we raised a record £2,730! That brings our total raised for Ambitious About Autism to £8,582. All of the auction items were donated by the management team at Just IT, so a huge thank you to them and to all of our bidders.
