DX raises almost £60,000 for Scotty’s Little Soldiers
Fundraising supports the children of the men and women who lost their lives whilst serving in the British Armed Forces
DX, a leading independent UK parcels and logistics firm, has announced its fundraising efforts for its chosen corporate charity,Scotty’s Little Soldiers, raised £59,700 in 2013. Inspired by the experience of army widow Nikki Scott, Scotty’s Little Soldiers provides treats and activities for the families of the fallen, with the aim of offering some respite.
The team at DX – from on-the-ground couriers right up to board level – took part in numerous fundraising efforts throughout 2013 including the Hadrian’s Wall Challenge, participating in the Paris Marathon, an a bikeathon - not to mention the obligatory office tuck-shop. The DX board, in honour of the efforts of staff at all levels, also contributed a £25,000 lump sum to the charity.
Nikki Scott, founder of Scotty’s Little Soldiers commented:
“DX has provided a phenomenal level of support to us over the past year, support which has made a real and lasting difference. I’ve experienced the highest levels of helpfulness and commitment from everyone, from the CEO right down to the individual depot managers. However, to only thank DX for its fundraising efforts would be to neglect all the other support we’ve received. From event sponsorship to free delivery of marketing campaigns, DX has not only helped us to raise the money needed to help military families, but has helped us to raise awareness of our charity so that we can keep on doing what we do best. It is for all these reasons that we recently awarded DX our “Corporate Partner of the Year” award.”
Petar Cvetkovic, CEO of DX said:
“Scotty’s Little Soldiers is a charity that’s very close to my heart and I can’t exaggerate how pleased I am that we’ve been able to make this level of contribution to help Nikki and the team continue their important work.”
