MYOPTIQUE GROUP CHARITY & SOCIAL

 

ABOUT OUR CHARITY & SOCIAL COMMITTEE

Our aim is to create an exciting calendar of events and activities which our employees can really get behind and support. Some months will involve fundraising, whilst others might be raising awareness of an important topic. The idea is to get everyone engaged and involved.

The MyOptique Group Charity & Social Committee is currently formed of two sub-commitees. Swindon's members are Anne Jacob, Danielle Matthews, Hayley Baker, Carly Ruck, Kay Thompson, Juliet Russell, Neil Conway, Mat Bellamy and Natalie Millar. With London consisting of Barney Streeting, Andie White, Mary Wheeler and Clara Baueb Freire. We are always keen to hear from anyone who might like to join us!

COMIC RELIEF RED NOSE DAY

WHAT IS RED NOSE DAY?
