Screwfix took thousands of calls for BBC Children in Need on Friday 13 November

LONDON, 2015-11-25 — /EPR Retail News/ — Yeovil based Screwfix took thousands of calls for BBC Children in Need on Friday 13 November, by donating the services of its whole call centre and contact team for the tenth year running.

Over 200 employees, who were all in childhood hero fancy dress, gave up their time to take pledge calls all night for the popular charity from across the UK, helping BBC Children In Need to raise a record-breaking £37 million.

In addition to the contact centre team, store staff from all over the country travelled to Yeovil to help man the phones from the company’s award-winning call centre, which is also one of the biggest in the region.

John Mewett, Marketing Director at Screwfix, said: “It is great to be able to help such a worthwhile cause and we had a great time taking calls to help towards the £37 million raised.”

“We’re so proud of our ten years of support to BBC Children In Need and I’d like to thank everyone who volunteered, we couldn’t do it without all our dedicated staff.”
