Corecom Consulting Performs Festive Fundraiser
Leeds-based business, Corecom Consulting, has successfully embarked on a festive fundraiser in aid of Emmaus Leeds; a charity that provides a home and meaningful work to formerly homeless people.
Corecom Consulting visited a number of their Leeds-based clients including CDS, Force24 and Creative Race, in a bid to collect donations for Emmaus. The Corecom carollers performed up-beat jazz renditions of ‘Merry Christmas Everyone’ and ‘I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday’, raising a healthy £302.31 for the charity.
Paul Cloke, Deputy Community Leader at Emmaus said:
“It was great for Corecom to support us over the festive season as this can be a tough time for our companions (formerly homeless people).
“The videos and photos from the fundraiser look fantastic and certainly put a smile on all of our faces here at Emmaus. We’d like to thank everyone for their kind donations, without you none of this could happen.”
Mike Collier, Technical Director at CDS Digital said:
“We were delighted to be visited and subsequently serenaded by carol singers from Corecom Consulting. Not only were we delighted to support such a great cause, we were also very impressed with the vocal prowess of the team, particularly the lead singer!
“Even though it was relatively early, a massed ensemble of CDS also joined in with gusto; excellent though CDS, we will probably put off our entry into Britain’s got talent at least for one year!”
Jonathan Sanderson, Managing Director at Corecom Consulting said:
“We hope that the donations we raised will go towards Emmaus’ plans for 2016 and we look forward to continuing to support the charity in the New Year.”
Corecom Consulting will continue to support the charity by delivering IT training sessions and CV writing workshops, as well as volunteering in the shop; assisting with clothes sorting, furniture collections, painting and upholstering.
