SHEFFIELD based video game developer Sumo Group swapped their studio for a spot of retail therapy as they joined us as volunteers.
A team from the award-winning company, one of the UK’s largest providers of end-to-end creative development services to the video games and entertainment industries, spent the day giving their time to our shops.
Sumo Group’s Head of M&A Pat Luker said: “We had a fantastic time supporting St Luke’s.
“Our team of 25 volunteers spent the day in two St Luke’s shops, working behind the scenes, sorting through donations and preparing items for sale.
"It was great to get an insight into the key role the shops play in raising funds for the hospice.
"I would highly recommend a corporate volunteering day to any employer looking to have a team building day out of the office, whilst also giving something back to the local community.
"Arranging the day was incredibly easy and it was really well run by the staff and volunteers at each site.
"Our team really enjoyed it and it was great that we could make a small contribution to the amazing work that St Luke’s does.
“We will definitely be back for another corporate volunteering day!”
