At SiteVisibility, we are always very excited to get involved in charitable, community and environmental projects and initiatives. This year, our commitment to raise £1600 for children’s charity NSPCC has come with several great projects, such as our Uniform at Work Project, a Digital Pub Quiz and an Inter-Agency Football Tournament.
Earlier this year, we had the opportunity to support our client Bishop’s Move, one of the UK’s largest removal companies, in a new and exciting partnership with disability charity Scope. In January 2012, Bishop’s Move teamed up with Scope to deliver a brand new de-cluttering service. We decided to join in the partnership and support and promote the campaign online.
The initiative has been extremely successful, with a total number of 1,519 bags donated to Scope so far, a total amount of £30,380.00 worth of donations since the campaign launched.
As part of our on-going CSR activity, the SV girls are excited to announce that they will soon we taking part in a new project to help us reach our fundraising total for the NSPCC.
During September and October, the girls of SiteVisibility will be ditching their normal attire and donning a little black dress for a whole month in the name of charity for the ‘Uniform @ Work’ project. They will be wearing their dresses for one month to promote sustainable fashion, show you don’t need to spend a fortune on what you wear to look and to raise some well-earned cash for the NSPCC.
Exciting news digital fans, with Brighton Digital Festival just around the corner we thought we’d follow up on BrightonSEO and round off the festival and test your newly acquired digital knowledge with a pub quiz to sort the men from the boys and raise some extra dollar for our dedicated charity the NSPCC whilst having some competitive fun.
The event will be taking place on Thursday 27th September at 8pm at The Caxton Arms.
If you know your Facebook from your facepalm, reckon you can express the rise of Google in the form of interpretive dance and like using play-dough to communicate abstract concepts then you should join us at the Caxton Arms for a night of silliness and digital-themed trivia!
CSR has always been important to us here at SiteVisibility. As Kelvin mentioned in his blog post earlier this year entitled ‘What Are We Doing at SiteVisibility to try to Give Something Back? Our CSR Activities’, SiteVisibility has a proud history of leadership in corporate responsibility having won the “BITC Small Company of the Year” award in 2007 for our CSR Strategy, and since then our CEO Jason Woodford has served on the prestigious BITC South East Leadership Board.
As part of SiteVisibility’s long standing support of the University of Brighton’s Digital Media & Marketing programme, which is now in its ninth year, and following a rigorous and lengthy set of interviews, challenges and tests, we have hired our 2012-2013 digital marketing placement student; the future digital marketing consultant that is Natalie Wright.
SiteVisibility’s University of Brighton Digital Media placement programme is part of SiteVisibility’s CSR programme where we aim to provide opportunities for young people to develop a career in digital marketing.
As part of our on-going CSR activity we have pledged to raise £1600 for the NSPCC. Our first big event which was held last week was the hugely successful Interagency Football tournament.
Organised by the lovely James, we all enjoyed some great football action and the sun even shone throughout! The event was held at the White Hawke pitches and we had seven teams involved so big thanks to LeapFrogg, Icrossing, ACM, DC Storm, Friday Media Group and PropellerNet who all came kitted out and helped us raise over £250.
