We are delighted that Heidrick & Struggles chose Sense as their preferred charity.
Heidrick & Struggles have already supported Sense through some great events! The company entered two teams in our Dragon Boat Race event on 19 July 2012, and jointly raised a fantastic amount of almost £2,500; also contributing to the success of the event by creating a buzz and excitement on the day.
On 27 September 2012 Heidrick & Struggles ran their own Battleshops and took over three Sense shops to run them for the day, raising almost £4,000 towards our work with deafblind people. The teams worked really hard to generate vital funds for Sense and help raise profile of our shops within the local communities of Hackney, Walworth and Loughton.
Participants had great innovative ideas and showed absolute dedication to make the event a success! The activities included collecting donations on streets and engaging with the local customers to encourage them to visit the shops.
The teams had also stocked up the shops with the great quality stock, including some new or nearly new wedding gowns which were the selling highlight of the day as well as with other great items such as new books and electronic gadgets.
We also had DJ Natty doing his sets outside the Walworth Road Shop; a hanky model show-casing the items in the Hackney shop and the local celebrity, and tarot-reader, Gail Hart, reading from palms for the customers in the Loughton Shop!
All the teams put a real effort into the challenge, but as all battles always have their winners, we also had one from Heidrick & Struggles. We would like to congratulate the pride members of the Hackney Shop team, as pictured below:
Thank you and well done!
Huge thanks for the fantastic support through Battleshops to all of the teams at Heidrick & Struggles; you were amazing!
We would like to thank Heidrick & Struggles and their employees for choosing Sense as their charity partner and supporting us through these fun and inspiring events! Thanks to you we can continue providing our critical services to many deafblind people and their families.
We look forward to seeing your future activities taking place!
The Sense Corporate Team
