2017 saw activpayroll take on a host of challenges for four deserving charities: Maggie’s, Friends of ANCHOR, SAMH and Children 1st.

After the success of #activAlison in 2016, it was time for the team to take on some new challenges. Our Aberdeen HQ and Edinburgh office participated in various activities throughout the year to raise vital funds for causes close to our hearts. Events, to name just a few, included the Aberdeen & Edinburgh Kilt Walk, Culture Crawl, ANCHOR Wipeout, Ride the North and Loch Ness Marathon.

Current total £17,002.23
