activpayroll Charity Update

From jumping out of planes in St Andrews, Scotland to holding food drives in Venice, Florida, the activpayroll team has been busy supporting some brilliant charities.

It has been a busy couple of months at activpayroll, with the team around the globe taking part in individual and team challenges and initiatives.

Skydive

On Saturday 25th May, Jurgita from the Aberdeen office took to the skies and experienced a free fall from 10,000ft over Scotland. The skydive was all in aid of Friends of Anchor and the donations Jurgita received will help make North-east Scotland’s cancer and haematology care the best it can be.

Edinburgh Half Marathon

In the same weekend that Jurgita took part in the skydive, Simon Wright from the Edinburgh team took part in his very first half marathon. Simon ran on behalf of St Columba’s Hospice, a cause very close to his heart.

Venice Food Drive

The activpayroll Florida office has been busy collecting food for those in need. Everyone in the team  brought in food items to donate to the ‘South Country Food Pantry’, a non-profit organisation dedicated to gathering, organising and distributing food to those in need in areas around Florida.

Aberdeen Kiltwalk

On Sunday 2nd June, Doug, Ilze, Loaine and Alison from the Aberdeen team took on The Kiltwalk’s Mighty Stride, walking over 26 miles in aid of Charlie House.

Culture Crawl

On Friday 21st June, a team of over 20 from activpayroll took to the streets of Aberdeen and completed the Maggie’s Culture Crawl. Despite some torrential weather conditions, the team finished the 10 mile night walk while visiting various cultural landmarks along the way.

So far this year, activpayroll has raised over £11,100 for five different charities, with challenges such as the Anchor Wipeout, Knysna Forest Half Marathon and Scottish Half Marathon still to go! Find out how you can support the team here.
