Kingdom wears hats to raise money for charity

clip_image002Kingdom recently took part in ‘Wear a Hat Day’ on Thursday 24th March in order to raise money for the charity Brain Tumour Research.

Kingdom employees came to work wearing a variety of crazy, funky hats which could be either purchased or homemade, and were encouraged to make a £5 donation to the charity by texting HAT to 70660.

HR Administrator Paddy Jones won the prize for the best hat, as judged by Kingdom’s National Operations Centre Director Ian McCaffary. Paddy received a £25 gift voucher as his prize.

Employees were also invited to take part in a quiz with 20 questions covering the brain, hats and general knowledge. The winner was Kingdom’s Sales Team Manager Jenny Baron who scored 19 out of 20, and also received a £25 gift voucher as her prize.

Below is a photo of Kingdom employees from the day, and of Paddy receiving his prize.

The charity Brain Tumour Research was established in 2009 specifically to raise substantial funds for brain tumour research. Brain tumours kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer, yet just 1% of the national spend on cancer research has been allocated to this devastating disease.
