CSR has always been very important for us here at SiteVisibility. This year we have committed to raising £1600 for the NSPCC to support and help them with their fantastic work.To help us reach our fundraising total for the children’s charity, we have been involved in several projects and events, such as our Inter-Agency Football Tournament and our Brighton Digital Pub Quiz.
During September and October, the SiteVisibility ladies took part in a hugely creative and innovative charity project, Uniform@Work. For one month, the SiteVisibility girls decided to ditch their normal attire to wear a little black dress in the name of charity.
Inspired by the 2009 ‘Uniform Project’ established by Sheena Matheiken, the Uniform@Work project highlights the importance and benefits of sustainable fashion. We believe that you don’t need to spend much on what you wear to look good, and took on the exciting challenge to ‘get creative’ with fashion in a sustainable way.
We received lots of support from local businesses donating accessories and old clothing items which we used to spice up our outfits. Photos and experiences were shared on a daily basis on our very own Project Blog uniformatwork.tumbr.com. Check out the blog to see what we looked like every day.
We would really just like to thank everyone who has supported us, either by donating cash on our Just Giving page or clothing items and accessories.
The project raised a total of over £500, getting us much closer to reaching our fundraising total!
The SiteVisibility girls look back with great memories, very happy to have been part of such a great project to help out a wonderful charity.
“It was a fun project and I would recommend this kind of thing to other companies for a good way to raise money and awareness. I have now also donated my black dresses to charity”
“I’m really pleased with the money we were able for raise for the NSPCC. Wearing the same outfit was both easy and challenging, and it did really make me think about sustainable fashion.”
“I’d like to say, a huge thanks to everyone for their support, it was a great month and I’m delighted that we’ve been able to highlight the fact that you really don’t need a huge designer wardrobe to look good and raise some much needed cash for an amazing cause!
