Employees at a local housing group donned their best – and worst – Christmas clothing to do some festive fundraising.
Durham City Homes’ colleagues also raised £30 for Durham-based charity Waddington Street Centre through a separate Christmas jumper day.
And employees of East Durham Homes collected and donated food to East Durham Trust’s FEED project, which supports local families and individuals by providing emergency food parcels.
believe housing’s Chief Executive, Bill Fullen, said: “This is a fantastic outcome for these worthwhile causes, and shows what can be achieved by working together.”
In the last financial year, colleagues across believe housing raised more than £11,000 for a variety of charities.
And from January 2017, employees across the group will be holding a charity dress down day each month to raise money for three charities that colleagues recently voted for: British Heart Foundation, Cancer Research UK and Macmillan Cancer Support.
