Bosch employees have raised over £60,000 for BBC Children in Need through various fundraising activities organised across the company’s 37 sites in the UK.
Bosch is perhaps best known for its white goods and power tools, but the company is active in a wide range of business sectors in the UK, including automotive technology, industrial technology, and consumer goods and building technology.
To mark Bosch’s 125th anniversary, the company decided to support Children in Need by organising various fundraising activities; from climbing the highest mountain peaks in Yorkshire, to swimming 125 lengths of a pool in 125 minutes and cycling 125 miles from Worcester to Denham.
Peter Fouquet, President of Robert Bosch UK said: “We are delighted to be supporting Children in Need, which does such valuable work in helping disadvantaged children and young people across the UK. We are also incredibly proud of our employees, so many of whom have initiated fantastic fundraising activity for the charity.”
BBC Children in Need Chief Executive, David Ramsden said: “I would like to thank Bosch UK and its staff for their fundraising efforts, which really will help to improve the lives of children and young people in the UK.”
