Now more than ever is a time when we can reflect on those who are perhaps not as lucky as us and those who are facing hardship and adversity through illness, loss of a loved one or perhaps through financial uncertainty.
At Opus it has always been a central value to ‘give back’ by supporting a number of charities every year. We raise money in a number of ways throughout the year by organising events and bake-offs and not least through our ‘First Friday of the Month’ company updates where staff ‘Dress Down for Charity’ and are invited to get together or dial in remotely at our Reigate HQ to socialise and hear about business updates. It’s a time we all enjoy, getting together, often with a beer in hand to hear about what is happening in our business and the impact we are all making. Central to our First Wednesday of the month is the fact that we invite everyone to donate a sum of money to our chosen charities. For every £2 donated, Opus matches this by donating another £8, so we really do feel we can make a difference.
Each year we raise an amazing amount of money for our chosen charities.
