Supporting National And Local Charitable Organisations
We fundraise throughout the year to raise money for our chosen charity, to ensure we are a part of the community. We are a collection of Walkers, Runners, and proud Cake-Eaters!
Visit The Outward Bound Trust
This year, our chosen charity is The Outward Bound Trust
Business Travel Direct has pledged to raise enough money to send 12 students from a local school to one of The Outward Bound Trust expeditions this year. We have a variety of events planned, both in and out of the office, to raise the £8,000 needed to allow the students to spend an adventurous week at one of The Outwood Bound Trust’s remote locations. Two members of our staff will also be attending the expedition on the last day, celebrating the success of the pupils with overcoming their fears and developing their confidence on a number of testing activities. Each team at each of our offices is working hard to plan exciting fundraising events, and our calendar is full of everything from a London to Brighton cycle ride to bake sales, Oxford Half Marathon and The London Bridge Walk.
It’s an exciting opportunity for us to be a part of the local community and make a real difference. Involving our staff in charity work is a core part of our business values and we’re proud to be helping The Outward Bound Trust this year with their great work
