A leading Sheffield-based recruitment firm has raised more than £1,500 for medical hair loss charity Routes Hair Loss Solutions at a charity quiz hosted by the business in celebration of the 3rd anniversary since its launch.
Glu Recruit – which specialises in office support, sales, creative, digital and I.T recruitment – announced Routes as its charity of the year last month.
The impressive sum was raised through donations, raffle tickets sales and a charity auction made by more than 100 members of the local business community who attended the event at Sheffield’s Rev De Cuba on Thursday, June 28th.
Team ‘Barnsley & Rotherham Chamber Pots’ were announced as the winners at the end of the night, beating local estate agents Redbrik by a small margin.
The funds will now be donated to Routes Hair Loss Solutions, which was founded by Rachel Burgin in 2018, and which helps to fund high quality, natural looking wigs that are fit for everyday wear for people who have suffered hair loss as a result of a medical condition such as cancer.
Rob Shaw, Managing Director at Glu Recruit said: “I would like to thank everyone who attended for their support not only for the charity, but also for Glu.
“Over the last three years the business has more than doubled in size, and we have worked with hundreds of local businesses to find the right team members to join them – both here in the UK, and on occasion further afield.
“The event was a wonderful way of bringing our business community together in celebration and we were delighted to be able to raise funds for our chosen charity of the year at the same time.”
Rachel Burgin added: “A huge thank you to Rob, the team at Glu Recruit and all those who attended the event on Thursday night for their generous donations.”
Glu will continue to fundraise for the charity for the remainder of the year.
