Screwfix to man the Children In Need phonelines for the 10th year

October 2015


For the tenth year running, Screwfix has pledged its support for the BBC’s well-loved Children in Need appeal. Screwfix will be donating the services of its dedicated head office and Contact Centre teams to this worthy cause.

Screwfix employees from across the business will be volunteering their own time on Friday 13th November to help take calls and pledges for Children in Need, from residents across the UK, including those living in the south west.

From 6.30pm until 12.30am, volunteers will be joining contact centre and head office staff to man the phone lines in the company’s award-winning contact centre. Spurred on by a recent visit from Pudsey to the Yeovil Head Office, staff will be getting into the spirit by dressing as their childhood hero in true Comic Relief style.

John Mewett, Marketing Director at Screwfix, comments: “We are looking forward to supporting Children in Need once again this year. Last year, we took thousands of calls and pledges from across the UK, showing just how generous people are when it comes to supporting Children in Need.  We are confident that we can help to exceed last year’s total during this year’s fundraising drive, and I’d like to thank all those staff members who are donating their Friday night to help”.

“The business really gets behind this cause every year and there will be a host of other exiting fundraising activities taking place on the night which will help to contribute even more to the grand total.  We are really looking forward to the big event and are excited we can offer our support again for the tenth year running.”
