In line with a tradition that stretches decades, the staff at Corrocoat head office in Leeds all got together on the last day before the Christmas break for the annual charity auction.
Each year a number of suppliers and contacts are kind enough to acknowledge with seasonal gifts their appreciation of the relationship with Corrocoat. It was decided many years ago that these gifts would be collected together and auctioned on the last day of business to the whole company.
So after a buffet lunch, the whole team gathered in the engineering workshop for the main event. Hosted by our CEO, Charles Watkinson, the bidding this year got off to a lively start and peaked when a number of sumptuous Christmas hampers were offered for sale.
All profits from the auction are presented to a Leeds homelessness charity called St Georges Crypt. A Leeds charity that focuses on accommodation, training and mentoring to transform the lives of homeless people. This year a grand total of £1,000 was raised and was donated to St Georges as a gesture of Corrocoat’s continued support for this worthy local cause.
