'CPL charity campaign triumphs again'
26 July 2013 15:20
This Sunday six women from the CPL Training Group supported the charity Cancer Research through the UK event "Race for Life".
Race for Life is the second charity campaign CPL has been involved in this year (the last one being Red Nose Day) and it has provided an excellent opportunity for everyone in the company to get involved with the event; whether they were racing or not.
The charity campaigns help to bring everyone together - not just across the Group - but those that work in separate divisions within CPL Online. Events like Race for Life give employees the chance to integrate and create a good working atmosphere. Of course, producing great products like our e-learning courses is something to take pride in, but to see everyone in your company get along with each other is something else.
The campaigns also raise company awareness through social media; our Facebook page has seen over a 300% rise in likes and interactions (e.g. people talking about the page) in the past seven months, and the highest peaks are usually around the same time we upload pictures from charity events.
All in all, I am very proud of the girls. They’ve come together to raise money and awareness for a good cause under the banner of CPL, and I wish them all the best for next year’s Race for Life event.

'CPL Online are wearing the Red Nose!'

This year we are supporting Comic Relief by raising money and awareness for the major UK charity.
Comic Relief is a major charity based in the UK, whose mission is to drive positive change through the power of entertainment. Since 1985, Comic Relief has raised over £800,000,000; this money has been used to tackle poverty and social injustice in the UK, Africa and some of the world’s poorest countries. Red Nose Day was created in 1988 as part of the Comic Relief campaign. Its creation brought comedy and charity together like never before on live national TV.
I feel strongly about supporting charity, especially Comic Relief, which has done so much already over the past 28 years. So, on the 15th March, all CPL Online employees will be arriving to work in their ultimate Friday casual wear – their pyjamas!
By having our pyjama party we intend to achieve (and hope to exceed) our goal of raising £100 on Red Nose Day. So tell your friends, your family, and your colleagues to support The On-lie-ins by sponsoring our Red Nose Day page here
