Rugbytots support for NSPCC leads to award
Reigate-based company Rugbytots has been awarded the NSPCC Champions Award after raising £50,000 for the charity last year.
The award, one of several bestowed by the NSPCC as part of its Supporter Recognition Scheme, was presented to Max Webb, managing director of Rugbytots, by Simon Clark of chartered accountants Kingston Smith LLP in Redhill, a key member of the NSPCC's Gatwick Diamond Business Board.
Simon said: "We are extremely grateful to Rugbytots for their support, which is helping to spotlight the work of the NSPCC in the Gatwick Diamond area and raise funds to help children. The money could, for example, help the NSPCC's ChildLine service answer 12,500 calls from children in need of help and advice. We rely heavily on the backing of our corporate partners to help fund our vital child protection services. Businesses can have a huge impact within the heart of their community and by supporting the NSPCC they can help raise their company profile, motivate staff and, most importantly, make a real difference to those children in need."
Max said: "I am delighted to accept this award on behalf of the staff and parents who took part in our London to Paris Cycle ride. Everyone made a huge effort to secure sponsorship and we had a fantastic time in the process. We are also raising funds for the NSPCC through our membership sign-up scheme and will be getting involved with other activities in the future."
