Northern Gas Networks employees based at Doxford Park, Sunderland, organised a jam-packed week of activities to celebrate National Customer Service Week earlier this month, raising over £1400 for Guide Dogs for the Blind in the process.
The fundraising activities included a fancy dress day which saw employees dressed up in a wide array of outfits from Yoda to Batman, a mini Olympics tournament, quizzes and tombola.
Kevin Harris, Customer Contact Centre Manager said: “Providing excellent customer service to 2.7 million customers across our network is a top priority for us. We wanted to celebrate National Customer Service Week and use it as an opportunity to put a spring in everyone’s step, inject some extra energy and fun into the office and raise some money for charity.”
Kevin added: “Guide Dogs for the Blind is a really worthwhile charity. One of our colleagues here at Doxford Park has a guide dog, and we have all witnessed firsthand the difference these amazing animals can make to a blind person’s day to day life.”
