Charitable causes are close to the heart of many at Enotria&Coe, and our staff undertake all sorts of events and initiatives to raise awareness and funds for a huge range of good causes.
Our employees are asked to nominate a charity each year, then all staff vote on which charity to support. Through the year we will then hold various events, from 60 mile bike rides to bake-offs, to raise money for the chosen charity. For the last three years our staff have voted to support Taylan's Project.
Taylan Rawlinson was the son of Andy Rawlinson, who works in our Off Trade Team. Taylan developed a brain tumour and tragically died aged 7 in August 2009. Andy and his wife Figen have worked tirelessly since Taylan's death to raise awareness for this relatively unknown but extremely dangerous form of cancer. Brain tumour research receives less than 1% of national cancer research spending in the UK yet this devastating disease kills more children and people under the age of 40 than any other cancer. Their website www.taylansproject.com carries more details.
Donations can be made directly at www.justgiving.co.uk/taylansproject
At the same time, Enotria&Coe retains its popular policy of matching employees' charitable fundraising efforts for their own causes, up to a maximum single donation of £250.
