Answer-4u are extremely proud of the long-term client relationships that have been developed over the years and consider ourselves fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with a diverse range of industries, providing low price telephony support that helps them to achieve their business goals.
We were recently approached by one such client with a great idea of how we could support them further and we were naturally only too happy to help…
Express Estate Agency,
an extremely successful online estate agent, facilitates the sale of around 300 properties per month nationwide and has been a valued client of Answer-4u for several years.
The Express Estate Agency has supported a number of charities and more recently have chosen Macmillan Cancer Support as their charity partner for 2015. Their most recent endeavour involves around 40 staff members joining 1/4 million other enthusiastic runners taking part in the Great Manchester 10k Run on Sunday 10th May. The run will prove to be quite the challenge as most of Express’ staff consider themselves as ‘none runners’.
Each participant has made a pledge to try and raise a minimum of £100 for the charity. However, they are hoping to exceed that target and have been reaching out to their trusted business partners to discuss the possibility of receiving additional support with their fund raising efforts.
We were delighted when The Express Estate Agency contacted Answer-4u with this request and, after communicating this to the whole team, we put forward our plans on how we could raise as much money as possible for such a worthy cause.
We will be using our regular “Charity Dress Down Day” on Friday 8th May and designating it as an ‘Express Fun Run Day’. All of the staff at Answer-4u will be making a donation to dress down in their favourite running and sports gear. The day will be filled with sports themed games, raffles and quizzes which will all help towards raising money to support the runners from The Express Estate Agency.
Our commitment to help…
Although we won’t quite be running any marathons on Friday, the staff at Answer-4u will be stepping up to the challenge… quite literally!
We will have an organised stepping competition with teams competing to take the most steps throughout the day using pedometers to keep track of their progress. Members of Answer-4u’s management are being auctioned off to the teams to help them to increase their overall total number of steps.
The teams have set themselves a target of over 391,020 steps throughout the course of the day which roughly equates to 150 miles and If they manage to reach that lofty target, Answer-4u will be making an extra donation in addition to all other monies raised throughout the day.
We would like to say a big thank you in advance to all of the employees at Answer-4u who will be taking part in the ‘Express Fun Run Day’. We would also like to wish the Express Estate Agency Runners luck with their 10k run this Sunday. We will be supporting you in spirit every step of the way!
Your donation can make a real difference…
All money raised by Answer-4u call answering services during our ‘Express Fun Run Day’ will be donated to the Express Estate Agency runners, if you would like to make a donation to the runners who are raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support please feel free to visit the Express Estate Agency’s Just Giving Page.
