Aico, the European market leader in home life safety are always up for a challenge, especially when it comes to raising money for charity.

On Friday 19th November, Aico colleagues attended work in their pyjamas, onesies and dressing gowns, and endeavored to raise money for Children In Need by baking cakes, pastries and strudels. Colleagues had the opportunity to give a donation to the charity for the crucial support that they provide to children and young people for these tasty treats!

Throughout 2021, Aico’s CSR programme, ‘Aico in the Community’, have focused on helping young people to tackle prevalent issues such as deprivation, education and mental health. Aico have supported several local organisations, charities and schools through donations and volunteering.

Aico support Children In Need each year, Children In Need are the BBC’s charity and their mission is to help ensure every child in the UK is safe, happy, secure and has the opportunities they need to reach their potential. They support children and young people affected by a whole range of disadvantages such as poverty, disability, illness, distress or trauma. They also work with a range of partners to tackle some of the most pressing issues facing the UK’s children and young people today, including: mental health and wellbeing, violence impacting young people; access to employment, and social injustice.

Clare Polden, Finance Clerk for Aico commented “Aico have supported Children In Need for many years, this year we came dressed in our PJ’s and had a cake sale. It was amazing to see so many colleagues get involved and raise money for such a fantastic cause to support children in the UK. During the year, Aico colleagues get involved and raise money for many charities. These can be local or national charities by dressing down, fancy dress or just general craziness! It’s just fantastic that we can come together as a company to raise money for such good causes and have fun.”
