At Stanton House we are aware of our responsibilities to our local communities and of the importance to give a little back where we can. Our Corporate Social Responsibility Committee organise a well-supported programme of fund raising and voluntary activity and are proactive in generating enthusiastic participation.
We first embarked on our CSR journey in 2012 when we decided to offer a series of consultancy sessions to University students in London. Since then we have gone on to climb mountains, cross rivers and tackle long distance walks to raise over $38,000 for EducAid.
Our journey with EducAid
The Stanton House CSR team conquered Yorkshire’s famous three-peaks raising $7,000 for EducAid and transforming the lives of 22 young Sierra Leoneans.
Our Hong Kong team faced mud, fire, walls and barbed wire as they tackled the Spartan Sprint for EducAid, raising HK$ 39,041 and providing a place of safety to 14 young Sierra Leoneans.
Stanton House employees trekked the equivalent of 2.5 Marathons as they walked from London to Brighton for EducAid. The team raised enough money to teach, feed and home 31 young Sierra Leoneans.
When we’re not climbing mountains, we’re baking cakes. Our CSR team is always looking for new ways to raise money for EducAid and recently did so with a winning Lemon Meringue and freshly-baked batch of cinabons!
The team spent four hours hiking the Lake Districts’ Ullswater in torrential rain, heavy fog and 50mph winds raising more than $5,500 for EducAid in the process!
