During the Covid-19 pandemic whilst employees were in lockdown on we decided to host our first virtual fundraising day on the 6th of May for Emerald Group employees across our global network. We set up a JustGiving page to raise funds for the day, and in total our colleagues donated an amazing £1,454 for the NHS Charities Together. NHS Charities Together is a membership organisation representing, supporting and championing 230 NHS Charities to provide vital services and facilities during Covid-19.
The day was held over our main communication platform Teams and consisted of a children’s quiz in the morning and an adults themed quiz in the afternoon, various exercise activities happening throughout the day, a baby photo competition and ‘Emerald’s Got Talent’ whereby our colleagues showcased their brilliant and unique talents. In addition to this, one of our long serving colleagues dyed his hair red, which entertained a lot of people.
“We’ve got lots of talent in Emerald!!! Really enjoyed everyone’s videos and pictures!! Soooo good!!”
“Wow, some talented people! Well done all – so brave”
“I am blown away with the hidden talents. Bohemian Rhapsody is a nightmare to sing, never mind mirroring the piano, the violin is just a quagmire and the dancers I can appreciate. Well done everyone!”
“Just enjoyed all of these whilst eating dinner! Andre Jun – legend!!! You are all amazing ❤️💜 ”
