Staff fundraising effort generously matched by the firm’s management
Throughout the UK, company staff usually raise funds each year for Children in Need, but at SMT GB, they go a step further with the management team matching their staff’s activities with an equal donation.
Throughout the week of 13 – 17 November, staff staged various activities – from quizzes to games to a Smart Dress up day – to raise funds for the national fundraising drive.
Steve Noakes, Parts Technical Support Co-ordinator, who organises the events each year says: “We’ve been holding a series of events to support Children in Need for over thirty years and it’s good to see the tradition continue unchanged and achieve such a good result towards this important cause.”
In total, SMT GB staff raised £620 which was generously matched by the company, bringing the total amount raised to £1,240.
SMT GB markets Volvo Construction Equipment products which include wheeled loaders, articulated haulers, hydraulic excavators, Volvo utility equipment and Volvo road equipment products in Great Britain. There are eight strategically placed customer support centres, a dedicated National Used Equipment Centre and a network of utility equipment dealers to ensure high quality customer support is maintained throughout the country.
