Screwfix takes calls to help Children In Need raise over £50 million

Last Friday employees from across Screwfix volunteered their time and took thousands of calls to support a well-loved and worthy cause; BBC Children in Need.

Yeovil based Screwfix donated its large Contact Centre in Yeovil, Somerset, with over 170 volunteers manning the phone lines for the twelfth year running. Volunteers truly got into the spirit by dressing up and partaking in games throughout the night, with generous donations of food, refreshments and prizes from local businesses to keep the volunteers going throughout the night.

Andrew Ashby, Director of Contact Centre comments: ‘It was an honour to be able to donate our contact centre to support BBC Children in Need for yet another year. We were overwhelmed with the number of donations and the generosity of the British public.

‘It was a fantastic evening and I would like to thank everyone who volunteered and helped to raise money, we couldn’t do it without the support from our dedicated people’.
