This is called team work! (How we donated to Shelter)

Dynamic Training UK donating to Shelter at Christmas

By Mandy Dunford

I was listening to Absolute Radio on my way into work and I heard the presenter say they were supporting Shelter as their Christmas charity. They were asking their listeners to wear their slippers to work and donate to Shelter.
As we were having out team day on December 18th I thought this was a great way to involve the team in supporting Shelter. This winter over 93,000 families would be homeless which, in this day and age in Great Britain, is a tragedy in itself and in most cases no fault of their own.
I sent an email to the team asking them to support Shelter buy wearing their slippers and a Christmas themed jumpers.
During our coffee break I asked the team if they would make a donation to Shelter as I was supporting this charity this Christmas. Our fab team members obliged and we raised £50.00.

In the afternoon James Gardner, our Director of Finance, set us a team challenge.  The Team was divided into 3 groups. Each group was asked to put a picture puzzle together and them to reproduce the picture as 30 times bigger!  Ready, steady, go! We were off…
James added a competition by saying the group who reproduces the best picture would receive £50.00 (!) towards drinks for our team Christmas meal out on Friday 19th December.
This activity was fun. We all worked closely in a team and but also were in competition with one another, of course in a light hearted way!
When we had all finished our fabulous drawings we placed them on the wall to be judged by James.  The winner was revealed shortly after.

Tracey Jones, on behalf of the winning group (group 1) announced that the team would like to donate their prize to Shelter. 

Wow! I was overwhelmed. We had raised £100 for Shelter. 


I would like to thank the Dynamic Training UK team for a fab team day and taking part in wearing your slippers and Christmas tops, and the kind donation to Shelter.

Wishing all our team, learners and partners a healthy and challenging 2015!
