Baxi team gives their all for Sport Relief.

Baxi proud to be part of Sport Relief 2012

WARWICK: Baxi's heateam service centre was proud to be part of Sport Relief last month. The call centre was one of 100 that were used to collect telephone donations during the marathon Sport Relief TV programme.

Employees from group sites all over the UK joined their colleagues to take calls until 2:00am. They were fortified by food and soft drinks donated by suppliers, who also wanted to do their bit for Sport Relief.

Lee Robinson, customer service director, said: "I was overwhelmed to see so many people from around our UK sites working together on behalf of such a great charity.

"It really was an incredible evening with a great atmosphere and sense of camaraderie. Everyone I spoke to thoroughly enjoyed the experience and asked, ‘Can we do it again?' Watch this space!"

During the evening, the service centre took over 1700 calls and more than £50 000 in donations, and still had time for quizzes, games and spot prizes.
