At Kamarin, we consider the charity and fundraising work we do as a serious responsibility. Our people decide upon the chosen charities for the year, which means the organisations we fundraise for our always close to our hearts so we’re dedicated to raising as much as possible.
The Social and Charity Committee
The Social and Charity Committee at Kamarin is internally managed by employees and runs independently from the company management, but everyone is welcome to join.
2019’s First Fundraising Event
In February 2019, the people at Kamarin took part in a 48-Hour charity Gameathon to fundraise for our chosen charities, Sands and Women V Cancer. This was our first major fundraising event of the year and it was organised by our Operations Director, Tony Pearson. The target was to raise £500 towards the £3000 target for the whole year. Whether it was gaming for two days or raising awareness, the entire company got involved in this event. We are absolutely overwhelmed and delighted that this event raised a total of £2,738.76, which is 91% of the entire year’s target.
We sincerely thank everyone for their support and incredibly generous donations … and this is only the first event.
“It’s easy to get caught up in our day to day lives and to focus on our own priorities and concerns. Our nominated charity gives us all the opportunity to stop and think about others. Not only that, it gives us a platform to do something about it, to take action and make a difference!”
“We would like to thank all the staff members at Kamarin Computers for your amazing support throughout 2017. Your efforts will help to ensure that we can continue to be at the forefront of end of life care for the 25 years and beyond”.
– Jethro Shearring, Dove House Hospice’s Fundraising Coordinator
“This year we want the whole company involved. Four major charity events will be planned and managed by a company director, which will encourage employees to get involved and ensure that they are doing their bit to help. Kamarin consider this a social responsibility and fundraising for charities close to us is a part of our company culture. The amount initially raised, will be matched by the company, so it is vital that everyone contributes“.
