Carillion held their final fundraising activity of 2016 in the form of a raffle draw at their Maidenhead offices on Tuesday 20th December. The prizes were donated from a number of industry organisations and included a 49'' Samsung TV, Samsung sound bar, Sonos speaker, Amazon echo and Love 2 Shop gift vouchers, Kindel, Tablet PC, champagne, cases of wine and a Christmas hamper. The raffle raised over £1545 for Carillion's house charities, Mcmillan and NRAS.
To add to our long list of fundraising events, the team at Carillion got into the festive spirit today hosting a Christmas Jumper day for the staff. There were some very colourful and inventive costumes and jumpers entered into the competition with all proceeds going to our house charities National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society (NRAS) and Macmillan Cancer Support. We raised £95.00 for the day. Thanks to all involved and Merry Christmas.
Guess The Weight Of The Pumpkin
As Halloween was approaching the staff at Carillion took part in a guess the weight of the pumpkin competition for our two house charities.
Guesses varied from 2grams up to 27.3kg!
It was finally revealed that the pumpkin weighed 25.3kg and the winner of the pumpkin was Ross Warwick our warehouse manager with 25kg.
After without much use for a giant pumpkin he donated it to Sean to carve with his family with some spooktacular results!
London To Milton Keynes 60 Mile Cycle
Adrian and Chris set off last Saturday (Oct 1st) on their 60-mile ride to Milton Keynes. After last years London to Brighton we expected great things from the guys and they did not disappoint completing the ride in 6 ½ hours with only two punctures and two crashes (the only injury's being to pride!)
Thanks again to everyone who sponsorship and well done to the team!
Staff from across Carillion set out to run the Gung-Ho 5K at Winsor race course on Saturday 10th September, raising funds for NRAS and McMillan. Running the 5k course, the team navigated various obstacles along the way including giant inflatable slides, climbing walls and mazes. The Challenge was on with some more competitive than they first let on!

Meet And Eat For Charity
Carillion staff raised £170 on the 10th of August as part of our regular 'Meet & Eat' event in aid of our two in house charities. At what is always a well-attended chance to get together socially in the day, a Chinese from a local hot spot was on offer this month, with a host of tasty dishes and let's say no one had space for dinner in the evening.

Cake Bake Sale
It’s a New Year and a new team running the Carillion Communications Fund Raising Committee and Rebecca Sullivan (Accounts Trainee) has the challenge of driving this year’s event schedule.
