Coventry Building Society
Coventry Building Society has supported National Star for the past two years and was recently named worthy winners of the Jelf UK award at the Gloucestershire Local Business Charity Awards 2019.
Team-building through fundraising
It is the enthusiastic and committed staff at Coventry Building Society’s call centre at Gloucester Business Park who passionately support National Star.
They have baked, dressed up and down, ran quizzes, held an auction of promises, walked on fire and put their hands in their pockets in support of young people with complex disabilities. Their passion and energy is infectious and they have thrown themselves into every project they have embarked upon.
The Coventry team is always the first to pick up the phone to volunteer to help with a bucket collection, even donning green glitter wigs to help collect donations from racegoers attending the National Hunt Festival. Effective corporate support extends beyond traditional fundraising and the Coventry Building Society team has proved they want to help in other ways, by donating their time as well as their cash.
They spent a day volunteering to spruce up National Star’s glamping pods. They also invested time to understand more about the issues facing students with disabilities, improving their awareness and challenging stereotypical thinking.
