Carphone Warehouse’s Capita team based at Ashton’s Tulketh Mill decided to have a fund-raising day for Rosemere Cancer Foundation, with some members going the extra mile by having their leg hair ripped off.
Their efforts raised more than £1,000 for Preston-based the charity.
Capita’s Fun Team also organised a Play Your Cards Right game and a cake sale.
Fun Team member Emma Whitemoss said: “All of us are passionate about raising money for charity, especially local charities such as Rosemere, which is close to many of our hearts.
“It’s the job of the Fun Team to bring such charities into the workplace so staff can find out more about what they do and also, through games, bake sales and sponsored events, come together and get to know one another better, which is a great motivator and good for office morale.”
The team is planning a second Rosemere Cancer Foundation fund-raising day later in the year and is also supporting two other local charities.
