We’ve raised over £1,500 for a local charity

Aviva’s Reading Trading Centre has adopted Daisy’s Dream as their local charity and have raised over £1,500 in the last 12 months.

The team in Reading have raised funds through assisting with regular collections at the Oracle Shopping Centre in Reading, holding cake sales, raffling a signed London Irish Rugby shirt and ball at a charity auction, and various other activities. To date the team have raised over £1,000 and a £500 donation was given from the Aviva Corporate Responsibility Team.

Geoff Rose, the Reading Corporate Responsibility Champion, has also used contacts in Aviva Investors to help Daisy’s Dream get access to the 420 foot ‘Blade’ office block with a view to organising a future fund raising abseil down the side of the building. If you are interested in participating please contact Geoff on 01189 647734
