REHAU to raise thousands to support disabled people and their families

  • 23 Aug 2018

REHAU has recently announced that it will raise thousands for a charity that provides vital funding to support disabled people and their families.

Screen Shot 2018-08-23 at 12.10.17The charity, Scope, aims to make the country a place where disabled people have the same opportunities as everyone else. The team will be raising money for the charity until the end of 2019.

Scope was selected from four charities placed into a business-wide vote as the REHAU staff saw very clear connections between the values and principles of the two brands.

By 2022, Scope aims to directly reach more than two million disabled people and their families each year with information, advice and support, as well as campaigning for equality and fairness. REHAU aims to help the chairty meet its ambitious target of £12,000 with its fundraising. 

A number of events are expected to help REHAU raise its money, including the company’s involvement in the Three Peaks Challenge this September which will see over 30 employees walk 23 miles across the three peaks (Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon) with a total ascent of more than 3,000m over two days.

In addition, July saw REHAU’s office in Slough host a stand at the Langley Carnival with a penalty shoot-out competition to raise money, alongside a cake sale and face painting, raising £156. On July 21 REHAU’s two production facilities in Blaenau and Amlwch held a charity football match in Bangor – you can find out more about the event here.

Other fundraising activities completed to date include dressing up for the royal wedding, a quiz, a Grand National sweepstake and a World Cup day in Slough.

Sergio Fonseca, HR Director at REHAU, comments: “Each year we support a charity as part of our CSR programme of activities, and this year our employees are going above and beyond with their fundraising efforts for Scope.”

Katy Miller, Partnerships Director at disability charity Scope, said: “We’re thrilled that REHAU has chosen to raise money for Scope, and wish the teams the best of luck in their challenge. Scope can only do the amazing work that it does thanks to the generous support we get from our partners and donors. We’re working to drive change in society so that disabled people have equality and fairness, but to achieve that, we all need to work together.”
