Capita supports causes close to our hearts

At Capita, we encourage our employees to support causes they care about offering one-day volunteering leave, a matched funding and payroll giving scheme. This year, despite some difficulties in our business, our employees have remained committed to supporting local initiatives in their communities, raising over £900,000 for charities.

17 Capita employees climbed Mount Snowdon at night- they came together to raise money for Alzheimer's Society. 

There was a total of 56 trekkers who took up the challenge of climbing the highest peak in England and Wales. Walkers came from all over the country and the event raised an incredible £26,000.

It was a fantastic experience and great to see so many people coming together for such a good cause. For me, this was a great chance to raise money and help in some small way. It was a great adventure, supporting a very important cause.

Capita Transformation

Capita India employees generously opened their purses and hearts to support people less fortunate than us during Diwali, the national festival of lights. The initiative which we called ‘Mission Diwali’ saw us working with our charity partners to support the young and the elderly. We donated clothes, sweets, toys, stationery, cots, wheelchairs and even a water purifier to various organisations.

The best part of ‘Mission Diwali’ were the parties where our people gave up their valuable time to donate the gifts and celebrate with the children and senior citizens. The laughter which lit up so many faces was worth a thousand lamps.

Our Dearne Valley office supported the ‘The Rucksack’ project in Barnsley filling 70 rucksacks with clothes, food and toiletries. The rucksacks were distributed to local homeless people. Wendy Tonge, operations manager at Capita’s Dearne Valley office, said: “Our staff are so passionate about supporting the ‘Rucksack project’ and worked hard to fill as many rucksacks as possible full of helpful items for people in need. As well as this project, we’ve also donated a full van’s worth of women’s clothing to a refuge centre and homeless shelter in Doncaster.”

Here’s to Capita employees making more of a difference in our local communities.
