Careline mans phones to help Sport Relief raise £31 million

Tuesday, April 27, 2010 | UK

Careline - Sport ReliefOver 100 Careline staff 'manned the phones' for this year's Sports Relief on Friday 19 March. Together they took more than 4000 calls from members of the public making donations to one of the UK's biggest fund raising programmes. The £31 million raised by this year's Sport Relief, will be used to turn around the lives of poor and disadvantaged people here at home and in some of the world's poorest nations.

Careline's team of volunteers included the entire Careline board, who all spent the night taking calls alongside their colleagues. "We were all quite nervous before taking our first call," recalls Careline's Sales Director, Roger Beadle, "but once we got going it was incredible, there was an amazing buzz around the place".

"It was a wonderful night and one which we were all so proud to be part of," says Careline's managing director, Charles Cooper-Driver. "We're now looking forward to supporting Comic Relief 2011!"
