Offering the same opportunities

Rehau has pledged to raise £thousands for its new chosen charity Scope, providing funds to support disabled people and their families.

The team at Rehau will be raising money for Scope until the end of 2019. The business chose to donate to this particular cause late in 2017, when the whole company was asked to nominate a charity. Scope was selected from four charities placed into a business-wide vote as the Rehau staff saw very clear connections between the values and principles of the two brands.

Scope aims to make this country a place where disabled people have the same opportunities as everyone else.

By 2022, Scope aims to directly reach more than two million disabled people and their families each year with information, advice and support, as well as campaigning for equality and fairness.

Now everyone at Rehau is getting behind the fundraising efforts, with national and local activities planned across the country to help meet its target of £12,000. The variety of fundraisers will culminate later this year when more than 30 staff from across the UK complete the Three Peaks Challenge in September.

More than 30 Rehau staff are taking part in the challenge from September 7 to 9. They all come from different departments and locations from across the UK, Ireland and Italy, reflecting the company-wide commitment to raising money for Scope.

Sergio Fonseca, HR director at Rehau, said: “Each year we support a charity as part of our CSR programme of activities, and this year our employees are going above and beyond with their fundraising efforts for Scope. Whether it’s taking on a huge personal challenge like the Three Peaks Challenge or making cakes for a bake sale, everyone is pulling together to achieve a common goal and there is a fantastic team spirit around the fundraising activities that is really special to be part of.”
