Screwfix takes calls to help Children in Need raise over £46 million

Yeovil based Screwfix took thousands of calls for BBC Children in Need last Friday, by donating the services of its call centre and contact team for the eleventh year running.

Over 150 employees dressed up and embraced this year’s theme ‘Do your thing’ and gave up their time to take calls all night for the popular charity from across the UK, helping BBC Children In Need to raise a record-breaking £46.6 Million.

In addition to the contact centre team, store staff from all over the country travelled to Yeovil to help man the phones from the company’s award-winning call centre, which is also one of the biggest in the region.

Andrew Ashby, Director of Customer Operations, Screwfix said: “It is great to be able to help such a worthwhile cause and we had a great time taking calls to help towards the £46.6 Million raised.”

“We’re so proud of our eleven years of support to BBC Children In Need and I’d like to thank everyone who volunteered, we couldn’t do it without all our dedicated staff.”
