Farsight Recruitment are an 11 year established company that specialise in construction. What makes them different is that they not only care about their candidates and clients, but they care about giving back as well.
Every year they have a big meeting & a party to celebrate their achievements as a team. As well as the usual business stuff, they play games, eat, drink and be merry. They also democratically decide what charity they will be supporting for the next year. Anyone who feels passionately about a cause is invited to put together a short presentation explaining what charity they would like to support, and why. The team then votes anonymously and the cause with the most vote wins… Simple as that!
Last year Tom put forward the Padley Group which is a charitable homeless centre based in Derby. The Padley Group had their government funding pulled, and in 2015/16 they raised nearly £4000 to help them. You can read more about that in our article about the charity Padley Group.
This year the charity that received the most votes was put forward by the Marketing Manager, Pip. Pip cleverly put together a video presentation about her nephew William, who is 4 years old and suffers from a disease called Langerhans’ cell histiocytosis (LCH). Click here to watch the video on their YouTube Channel.
LCH is a rare disease that occurs when the body makes too many Langerhans cells. The extra Langerhans cells spread through the blood and build up in certain parts of the body, where they can damage tissue and form tumours.
William has suffered with LCH since he was just 1-year-old. He has been receiving chemotherapy and been on steroids for the last 3 years. If you would like to find out more about the chosen charity, Histio UK, then you go can to go the Histio UK charity website.
As the year goes on the team at Farsight will be working hard to raise as much money as possible for Histio, so check out the website for updates and info. If you would like to get involved please get in touch with Farsight. If you’re feeling generous and you’d like to help them get off the mark, you can donate on the Farsight JustGiving Page.
