MOJ -Never too busy to be charitable….
MoJ Shared Services and in particular our contact centre teams are always up for doing something wild and wonderful to raise money for charity and support our local communities. We’ve done all sorts of things including volunteering and taking donation calls for Comic and Sport Relief and collecting money and items to support the local homeless shelter. More recently, we have been supporting charities with dress down (or dress up days actually) at the end of each month – and we recently had a crazy day at the beach were everyone came in wearing their best beach gear and the office got turned into a haven of sand, sea and sunhats....

A big thank you to everyone who took part and made a donation. We're sure you will agree it was a lot of fun on the day - and it is a very worthy cause.

Tesco Customer Service colleagues gear up for 500 mile charity cycle challenge
Colleagues from the Tesco Customer Service Centres based in both Cardiff and Dundee are gearing up for a challenge that will connect the sites in a way that’s never been seen before. 14 Tesco colleagues from both centres will cycle from Cardiff to Dundee covering 500 miles in just 5 days.
The riders will set off on 20th June and will aim to ride for a gruelling 7 hours a day come rain or shine to raise money for the Tesco Charity Partner Diabetes UK. Anthony Perry a rider from Cardiff said, “I try to complete a charity challenge every year, but compared to half marathons or three peak challenges, this is going to be the most difficult yet. The obvious focus and incentive is to raise as much as possible for the charity of the year which is going to be great.” Read the full story here.
Welsh Contact Centres brave It's a Knockout for charity
Over 300 participants and spectators enjoyed a fun-filled day, with teams of 10 people representing various Olympic nations, striving to win the coveted Ty Hafan It’s a Knockout Olympics gold, silver or bronze medals. This is good old-fashioned inflatable fun and great for team building, as well as a fantastic family day out. It’s a Knockout attracted teams from a range of target markets. As well as the It’s a Knockout challenge, there were children’s rides, games, refreshments and other activities available to entertain visitors. The successful Ty Hafan It’s a Knockout has been held for the past two years and attracted 30 teams each year. Teams have entered from a wide range of backgrounds in previous years, including NHS, MOD, manufacturing companies, sporting organisations, service sector industries, teachers, telecoms and groups of friends. The appeal of It’s a Knockout is that it represents a unique team building opportunity for businesses, a fun day out
for teams and groups of friends but also a great trip for families and supporters. Whilst the concept is very retro, the mass appeal remains very current. This year’s event was very contemporary taking place just one week before the Olympic Games begin. This year in conjunction with the Welsh Contact Centre Forum the Contact Centre support was fantastic.The It’s a Knockout Welsh Contact Centre Forum Olympics Special Event was held at the South Wales Police Sports Ground, Bridgend on Saturday 21 July 2012.
