This year we are ‘Doing It For Dan’

We are gearing up for a year of fundraising again, this time in aid of Doing It For Dan.

We support a different local charity each year, and cumulatively have raised thousands of pounds for good causes. Last year, we fundraised for mental health charity Swindon and Gloucestershire Mind, for which our amazing Payroll Manager Liz Grange raised an incredible £4,000, when she completed an ultramarathon.

We also take part in numerous national fundraisers, including Red Nose Day, Christmas Jumper Day and Macmillan’s coffee morning.

During 2024, we will be supporting Doing It For Dan, a Swindon-based charity which provides grants for sports related items like equipment, kit, coaching and club fees, helping young people to achieve their sporting dreams.

It was set up in 2016, in memory of 11-year-old Daniel Climance. Dan’s mum and Chair of Trustees, Helen Hancock, said: “We are absolutely delighted that Optimum has chosen to support Doing it for Dan this year and look forward to working with their fantastic team to raise both awareness and funds, which will enable us to support more children and young people locally with sporting activities.

We feel it is important to do something for the community which we work and live in, plus it gives us an excuse to get together as a team and have some fun. Doing It For Dan is a fantastic charity, and we are looking forward to helping raise some much-needed funds.
