The One Point Foundation has been very busy this past year, supporting numerous great local causes. Below, we take a look back at The One Point Foundation's activity over the past 6 months:
The One Point Foundation donated £100 to Principal Software Architect, David Carr, as he takes part in the One Million Step Challenge in support of Diabetes UK.
"I'm taking part in the One Million Step Challenge to support people affected by diabetes. I've not been very active recently but this is a cause I want to support and be more active at the same time. Please help me to raise funds for a great cause, I'm aiming to do at least 10,000 steps a day from now until September. There are 4.7 million people living with diabetes in the UK, the complications of which lead to over 500 premature deaths every week. So, I'm stepping towards a healthier me, and a better future for people living with diabetes."

The One Point and IT@Spectrum took part in the Hull 10K 2019, to raise funds for The One Point Foundation and Child Dynamix, so that we can continue to support Smile Foundation and other local causes and charities relating to general health, well-being and young people.
Over the past year, The One Point Foundation has raised around £20,000 and allocated around £19,000 of that back out to support local causes and charities.
In support of The One Point Foundation, we raised a fantastic sum of £1,800 from the first annual Golf Day hosted by The One Point.
Our guests enjoyed full use of the Greens at the Burstwick Country Golf Club. All around, it was a fantastic day of fundraising and good spirits.
Throughout the day, the teams played shotgun-style competing to win our top prizes, which ranged from, paid team entry into another local golf event, champagne, and a special prize for the losing team.
The Payroll Raffle is an opportunity for The One Point team to show their support for The One Point Foundation, in return for the opportunity to win fantastic monthly prizes, with even bigger prizes given on a quarterly basis.
April's top prize winner was Marketing Executive, Ruby Keable, who was presented with a certificate for 'A Weekend Away for 2'!
April's second place winner was Helpdesk Manager, David Thompson, who won a bottle of Prosecco!
The One Point Foundation donated to Smile Foundation in support of their annual Easter Egg Appeal.
Smile Foundation appealed to local businesses and individuals to donate to their annual Easter Egg Appeal to collect enough Easter eggs to ensure every child at each Smile supported charity received a sweet treat at Easter.
