Staff from Gateshead based Cintra HR & Payroll Services, award winning UK leader in flexible payroll and HR, turned out in record numbers to support this year’s St. Oswald’s Hospice Kaleidoscope 5K.
Following in the fun steps of last year, a team of 64 staff, family and friends gathered at the Rising Sun Country Park to take part in the second powder paint run in aid of St. Oswald’s Hospice. Staunch St. Oswald’s supporters, this year Cintra not only funded the entry fees for its mammoth team, but also sponsored a paint station, ensuring that everyone was doused in Cintra blue!
Renowned for its contribution to the community, 2015 saw Cintra formally launch its CSR programme ‘Cintra Cares’. Core to the ‘Cintra Cares’ policy is to define the aims of the organisation, one of which is to achieve the UN recommended target of donating a set percentage of its profit to charitable causes. Cintra’s investment in this and other initiatives, sees it well on the way to meeting it’s target.
“We were delighted that so many people wanted to take part and Cintra was only too happy to fund the entry fee for all Cintra staff, family and friends” said CEO Carsten Staehr. “I’ve absolutely loved being a part of today – Cintra staff work hard but they play hard too. It’s been fabulous to spend time together out of the office, not only having a good time, but helping to raise money for such a worthy cause too”.
