Here’s what some of our 2018 Award winners told us:

“We are delighted to win another Pennies from Heaven Award and to see that 83% of our staff are donating their pennies every month is fantastic. We run the scheme as an opt out approach which has been received favourably with staff and indeed those that did choose to opt out we contacted and asked them to reconsider – as a result most opted in. We raise around £550 a month through the scheme which supports the Trusts General Purpose Fund enabling us to continue such vital programmes as the Volunteer Project. This not only provides additional support for the hospital, but also provides work experience and placements for members of the community with additional needs.” Michelle Turner MCIPD – Director of Workforce & Marketing. Liverpool Women’s NHS Foundation Trust.

Playing our part to help charitable causes across the UK and Ireland is incredibly important to us at HSS Hire Group, so we are delighted to receive the Gold Award this year. Pennies from Heaven represents a no fuss way for our colleagues to give back, and we’re incredibly proud that more colleagues than ever have chosen to take part and do their bit to help some important charities. We are committed to making a positive impact in all the communities we work in, and the Pennies from Heaven initiative plays a key part in this. We look forward to seeing even more colleagues join the scheme over the next year!” Kimberley Sanger, Reward, Human Resources. HSS Hire.

“Winning the Bronze Pennies from Heaven Award in 2017 gave us a real boost in sign-ups. We refreshed all our internal comms to highlight the Award, thanking staff for their donations and highlighting how they were making a difference. It looks like that encouraged other members of staff to sign up as this year we have won a Gold Award – I hope this has the same impact.”

Of course, the real winners of Pennies from Heaven are the charities themselves and to date the scheme has generated over £4.5m for over 200 charities – there can be little doubt that ‘small change is making a big change.’

We would like to thank all our employers for their invaluable support and wish you good luck with your entry.
