Wrap Up London

Do you have any old, unwanted winter coats that only take up space in your wardrobe? Donate them to charity and help keep vulnerable people stay warm this winter!

Between 8-14 November, the campaign Wrap Up London runs at several major London underground stations. Wrap Up London is run by the registered charity Hands On London, and during the campaign they collect your old, unwanted coats and giving them to charities that support the homeless, refugees, children living in poverty and people fleeing domestic violence.

Coats donated to Wrap Up London go directly to people across London who struggle to keep warm during the winter months. Coats are distributed via homeless shelters, refugee centres, organisations supporting the elderly, women’s refuges, children’s centres and other charities helping people in crisis.

There are collection points for people to donate coats at six of London’s major tube stations; Canary Wharf, Kings Cross, Liverpool Street, London Bridge, Victoria and Waterloo. Goodwille will collect coats at our London office for clients and employees who want to donate but do not pass any of these underground stations during the campaign. Our CSR team will on behalf of Goodwille drop off all coats and jackets donated by the team & friends on Wednesday 14th November.

Donate old or unwanted coats and help those that can’t afford winter clothes to wrap up and stay warm this winter. Give a coat, warm a heart – help keep vulnerable people warm by donating a coat this November! #DOITFOROTHERS

Grow it, show it – Movember

November is dedicated to showing support for men’s health issues. At Goodwille, we are proud to be part of the global movement to stop men dying too young by taking part in Movember. 5 brave Mo Bros from Team Goodwille will grow a moustache and we hope that their faces will inspire donations and start conversations about this important and global issue.

For 30 days, our Mo Bros to embark on a journey for men’s health. This year’s warriors are:

Alexander Goodwille (CEO)
Kevin Rutter (CFO)
Michael Thake
Tore Overgaard Frederiksen
Alex Blain

The rules are simple! On the 1st November the Mo Bros arrive to the office with a clean shaved face, and by the end of the month a dedicated jury will evaluate, measure and decide on who has grown the biggest and prettiest moustache. Who do you think can grow the best Mo? Only time will tell, but one thing is for certain. No matter the shape or style of the Mos, they will make a real change for all men!

We are taking part in this campaign to support Movember Foundation, a global charity tackling men’s health issues including prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.

Show your support for men’s health by joining Goodwille & the Mo Bros in raising funds and awareness for this good cause and donate to our Movember fundraising campaign. All funds raised will go to directly to Movember Foundation for an everlasting impact on men’s health.

Let’s do this together for all the dads, sons, brothers, and mates in our lives! #DOITFOROTHERS

#DOITFOROTHERS – Goodwille launches internal CSR & Charity initiative

On Monday 1 October, Goodwille launched its new Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Charity initiative #DOITFOROTHERS. The aim of the initiative is to raise awareness and funds for Good Causes. We are committed to making a difference in our society and give something back to the communities where we live and work. Doing good is in our DNA (and our name!) and that’s why we deliver a variety of different fundraising opportunities by organising events and making financial contributions to support local and national campaigns and charities.Through our internal CSR group, we raise awareness and funds for those who need it most, whilst having fun along the way. We actively encourage our team to get involved in these activities, to organise their own events and take time to give back to charitable causes.

By raising awareness and money for good causes, we hope to inspire our clients, partners and wider network to also get involved and #doitforothers.

A Good Deed – Running for Charity

Running for a Good Cause.

On 14 October 2018, The Royal Parks Half Marathon takes place in London. The race takes runners on a stunning tour through London; past some of the capital’s world-famous landmarks and through four of London’s eight Royal Parks – Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James’s Park and Kensington Gardens.

Running The Royal Parks Half Marathon is not only a good way to do some sightseeing of our beautiful capital, but it’s also the perfect occasion to run for a good cause and raise money for charity!

We are running for our company charity MicroLoan Foundation. MicroLoan Foundation is a UK-based charity that empowers women in sub-Saharan to work their way out of poverty. Through small loans, business training and ongoing guidance, these women learn to build businesses capable of sustained success. By giving hope and not handouts, MicroLoan provides the poorest women in sub-Saharan Africa with the tools and skills needed to move towards financial sustainability and to become self-sufficient.

Help us raise money for MicroLoan! Do a Good Deed and donate to our cause on our donation page. The money you help us raise will provide more loans and business training to women living in sub-Saharan Africa.

Welcome to Goodwille’s Coffee Morning

On Friday 28 September, Goodwille is taking part in the World’s Biggest Coffee morning by hosting Macmillan Coffee Mornings in both our offices. Join us for a fundraising event that both tastes and feels good!

The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is a fundraising event for people facing cancer taking place all over the UK on 28 September 2018. All donations on the day are made to Macmillan Cancer Support, and last year the event raised over £27 million! We want to do our part and beat that number this year and therefore open up the doors to our offices to anyone who wants to help us raise money for cancer!

What you can expect from Goodwille’s Coffee Morning:

First of all, lots of good cakes! Some of them will be home-made, some might be from one of the amazing coffee shops we have around the corner. What is for certain is that there will be a selection of cakes to suit every taste. Make sure to get here early though, we’re not saving the best for last!

For every coffee (or tea) and cake you try on the day, you donate a desired amount to our Coffee Morning Fund.  We will also host bake&cake related games where you donate to take part and the lucky winner gets a prize! Everything raised by the end of the day goes directly to Macmillan Cancer Support.

Help us raise money to beat cancer – join us for delicious cake(s), coffee and fun games between 10am and 2pm on 28 September. Pop in for a chat with our friendly colleagues, judge our baking skills and start your weekend the best way possible together with us!

Good Effort: Team Goodwille run the British 10K for charity

Sunday 15 July 2018 was incredibly warm, with a temperature of 25 degrees Celsius before the clock had even struck 10am. But despite the heat and the fact that there were no clouds in sight, nothing could stop Team Goodwille from running the British 10K in Westminster to raise money for UNIQUE – a charity with the mission to inform and support anyone affected by rare chromosome and gene disorders.

Yes it was warm, yes the run was a bit more sweaty than most 10K’s, and YES they still all finished with great results! Definitely a Good Effort by all runners, not only from #teamgoodwille, but everyone participating in the run. The atmosphere during the run was amazing, and it was fantastic to see that most runners were running for charities and to support Good Causes.

Running for charity has become a tradition at Goodwille, and our employees partake in several races every year to raise money and awareness for different causes we care about. This year we chose to support Unique, and we hope that by raising awareness of rare chromosome and gene disorders and donating all the money raised from running the British 10K to UNIQUE, we can make a difference to individuals and families in the UK.

There is still time to help us make a difference and donate to our cause. All donations and contributions, however large or small, make a real and lasting difference.

DONATE HERE.
