Charity Fundraising

Our team at Worcester Bosch are caring people who like to fundraise for causes dear to their hearts.

Every year we ask our colleagues to nominate and vote for the charity that they would like to support. The fundraising takes on many forms including – mud runs, coffee mornings, sponsored walks, pumpkin carving competitions, Christmas fayres, Summer fayres, customer golf days... in fact the list is so long it would be impossible to put everything down.

Below we’ve listed the charities we have supported in recent years. From 2017 onwards, the Executive Board of Worcester Bosch pledged to match the amount of money raised, which has meant even more funds have been donated to our chosen charities.

NHS Charity Boiler Raffle

During the Coronavirus Pandemic we created 2 special boilers with a rainbow theme to support the NHS Charity. We raffled the boilers off and raised over £8000 – both boilers were won by installation companies, who then gave them away to NHS workers – a very nice way to say thank you.

Our Charity Forum

As well as raising money for a particular cause – we also have a team of people across the business who review requests from charities to help with small projects, which is funded by the company.
