Just Small Change is a microfinance charity that Coinadrink has been supporting for a while. Peter and Jane Donaghue are friends of ours and we are delighted to help make a difference in some of the poorest parts of the world. We were delighted to receive an update from Peter and Jane last week regarding the organisations’ progress, including the introduction of “table banking” alongside their current scheme.
Black Friday. You can’t fail to have noticed the shopping phenomenon that consumes the Nation every year. And now we’ve decided to get on board with Black Friday ourselves in the most charitable way possible. We have committed to donate 10p from each sale made in our Micro Markets, to a charity that is set to be nominated by each customer.
How you design your workplace is more important than you think. It’s strongly believed that a workplace that puts employees first is key to improving both wellbeing and productivity. Employees require a better working environment to combat common, everyday issues such as stress and fatigue.
Have you ever wondered just how long you sit at your desk every day? The facts are somewhat startling. According to a workplace survey carried out by Fellows, 81% of UK office workers spend between four and nine hours a day just sitting at their desk, which equates to an incredible 67 sedentary days per person per year…
Look out, we’ve just been highly commended by The Vendies for our two recent competition entries: ‘Best Regional Operator’ and ‘Best Operator Website’! The Vendies awards are recognition of the hard work and dedication of all the vending companies in the industry, so it’s pleasing to have been given strong recognition. How about that for a bit of ‘Friday Feeling’?
We always love hearing about updates to our chosen charities that we support. Acorns Children’s Hospice provide care and support to life limited and life threatened children and their families, within three hospices situated around the West Midlands. In the past year their support has extended to over 870 children and more than 1,140 families, but they need the continued support of the public in order to carry on. In fact, the charity requires nearly £10m every year just to operate! That’s a lot of money…
Part of my role here at Coinadrink is manning our social media platforms and last week I noticed something that really caught my attention. One of our followers tweeted that this week was National Customer Service Week, an element of our business that we really believe sets us apart from the competition. Of course, then, I just had to get us on board with the trend. 99% of our customers say that they would recommend us, which says it all…
This years’ MacMillan Coffee Morning has come and gone but what a morning it was. In fact, it was so good that we extended it over both the Thursday and Friday! Colleagues at Coinadrink excelled themselves with a terrific display of delicious goodies: I only wish I was there to see it myself! Without wishing to blow our own trumpet, Coinadrink and charity work go hand in hand and we managed to raise a total of £80! It’s clear our staff pulled through once again for such a fantastic organisation.
