On Friday November 17th, Prospec Ltd showed support for Children in Need by raising money for this great cause.
We have raised money together to support disadvantaged young people and children throughout the UK. All year Children in Need put that money to work, funding inspirational ideas and projects, working across a range of disadvantages, such as poverty, abuse, disability, and distress.
Prospec raised money by dressing down, dressing up, participating in the duck race and selling treats to raise £145.00 plus £36.25 gift aid. Our Prospec CAD team really got into the spirit of Children in Need, dressing up as The Simpsons!
