Our Social Purpose programme is an integral part of our foundations, central to our corporate philosophy and underpinning the actions in every employee, both through delivery of business services and within the wider community. Our global programme is delivered on a local basis, sharing best practice across all of our international offices whilst supporting local communities, charities and initiatives to really engage with our staff and add more value to the communities we serve. We look forward to further developing our programme in the coming months.
Crazy 5 in Five
In March 2018, The SR Group once again took on the 'Crazy' challenge of running 5 half marathons in 5 days across the world raising money for Sport Relief and Anthony Nolan. This is our second Crazy event, in March 2016 we had just over 100 people take part in this crazy challenge and we raised just over £20,000 for Sport Relief and Shooting Star Chase. This year we had more people take part, many of whom had never run before. It was a truly global challenge and our colleagues from New York, Milan, Amsterdam, Dubai, Hong Kong, Singapore and Sydney took part. We were also joined by some amazing “Crazy Friends” including a team of over 15 runners from law firm Stephenson Harwood, and also teams from RPC, Hogan Lovells, Freshfields, Rocket Network, Helaba, Mayer Brown, Invest Industrial, Freud Communications, and Anthony Nolan.
The Dusseldorf and Frankfurt offices have been involved in the 6.1km run for the past 4 years running.
In 2017, a team of men around the globe grew a beard for the duration of October (some of them used this as a headstart on Movember!) raising money for Shooting Star Chase.
