Jo is our fundraiser of the month
16 September 2015
Our Marketing manager Jo Punch helps raise over £33,000 for the BT Supporters Club.
Jo’s fundraising has been recognised and she is one of the first winners of the 2015 BT Chairman’s Awards. The awards celebrate our people who go the extra mile for their local community, or whose actions contribute to our commitment of being a responsible, sustainable business, or support our purpose, “To use the power of communications to make a better world”.
Jo organised the annual charity Graduate Challenge. This year they did something unique which was a spin on a triathlon called ‘TriGRADathlon’ where 88 graduates and apprentices were sponsored for a gruelling 12 hour challenge involving canoeing, cycling and hiking.
They also undertook a range of other fundraising activities including bake sales, a whole day of cycling in the BT Centre reception and a film night with their partner Dolby. They raised over £33,000 for the BT Supporter’s Club which brings people together through sport.
Thanks to Jo’s efforts the Supporter’s Club will receive £500 from us.
