From An extract from Glasgow Chamber of Commerce
Glasgow Stafffinders ditched boring black for vibrant red when they staged a 'Dress in Red' day to raise money for Red Cross Week.
All 25 staff that work at the Buchanan Street office took part in the event, which asked for a donation to be given in exchange for dressing in red. In addition, donation envelopes, which are still being collected, have gone out to all permanent and temporary staff.
Jennifer Ralston, charity Convenor at Stafffinders, said "We really enjoyed the Dress in Red day and were delighted to support the British Red Cross in this fun way. The Red Cross carries out some vital work in our area as well as overseas and we are proud that Stafffinders will help them continue to be there".
Laura Barron, Senior Fundraiser with the British Red Cross, said: "We are really grateful to everyone at Stafffinders for supporting us by 'Dressing in red’'. The funds they raise will enable us to continue to be there for vulnerable people in crisis all over the world".
