Curo’s day at Dodford Childrens’ Holiday Farm

Wednesday, April 17th, 2013

                                                                                            Some of the Curo team spent a very satisfying day at Dodford Childrens’ Holiday Farm, getting stuck in with getting the farm ready for the warmer months.

The farm is based in Worcestershire and was set up to provide inexpensive holidays for children and their families who are in need of a well-earned break. Most of the children who visit Dodford are disadvantaged by their situation and many have special needs. Dodford is one of Curo’s chosen CSR charities and we were keen to help, thrilled at seeing instant results and knowing that it will make for even better holidays for the children.

We got down and dirty with mucking out the animals, preparing the swimming pool and using muscles that don’t usually get a workout at the office! It was great fun and all for such a worthwhile cause.

Dodford is always looking for good quality unwanted toys and assistance. For more info, visit: http://www.dodfordfarm.co.uk/

Curo and Bindles host fundraiser for Funny Blood

Tuesday, December 4th, 2012

We kicked off Christmas last week in an event co-hosted with Bindles of Worcester, held at Bindles. The fundraiser was for Funny Blood, a Worcestershire-based not-for-profit organisation established by Ruby Edwards whose son suffers from a rare and serious condition.

A raffle was held with the winning tickets drawn by Robin Walker MP and prizes were generously donated by Bindles, Curo, Harrison Clark, Prosperity, Blackstar and a number of other kind individuals.

Guests were treated to a mouth-watering selection of canapes and enjoyed Bindles ‘own brewed’ mulled cider and wine, which was delicious.

Photography was provided courtesey of F8Creates. Thank you to all who came along and supported this event.

Here’s a selection of photos from the event – enjoy!

Our CSR office good cause Funny Blood is on the radio!

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

The ever-busy Ruby from Funny Blood spoke yesterday on BBC Hereford & Worcesteron the Tony Fisher show, explaining how she’d recently raised enough funds to secure charitable status for the cause she founded, Funny Blood. She was kind enough to give Curo a mention and we are proud to support her in the work she does for this worthwhile cause.

Ruby’s son is affected by a rare blood platelet condition and on discovering there was very little help available, Ruby set up Funny Blood to raise funds for research.

Congratulations on your amazing work so far Ruby and on gaining charitable status for Funny Blood. You are an inspiration! Here’s a link to the interview on BBC iPlayer.

Curo exhibits at Chamber Expo

Monday, October 22nd, 2012

Another great Expo, this time it was with the Herefordshire and Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce.

We met loads of people from all over the two counties and beyond who had come to find out what the best of the area had to offer. Some great stand displays too, most memorable (apart of course from Curo’s!) was eresponse recruitment – the ladies were on stilts for ages handing out leaflets!

Great to see so many clients and contacts, including our office CSR cause, Funny Blood, Peach Recruitment, NinetyFive Creative, Holywell, SME, Harrison Clark, Hewett Recruitment and so many more.

Monday, October 8th, 2012

Were thrilled to announce the two causes we’ll be supporting over the next year as part of our ongoing CSR programme. Funny Blood, set up by Ruby Edwards is a Malvern-based not for profit organisation raising awareness of the condition ‘Platelet Function Disorder’.

Our other cause is the Dodford Childrens’ Holiday Farm, offering holidays and short breaks to disadvantaged children.

We’ll be putting our heads together to come up with some fun fundraisers and also provide some hands on help at the farm.

Here’s to another successful year of helping local good causes and having plenty of fun too!
