Employees at RSA’s call centre in Peterborough turned out in force to answer pledge calls for Comic Relief—for the eighth year in a row

Over one hundred staff volunteered at RSA's call centre in Peterborough taking over 1,000 calls pledging £28,400 for Red Nose Day. Added to another incredible effort by RSA’s Sunderland call centre, RSA staff volunteered over 1,000 hours of their time to take £83,400 in pledges. Comic Relief 2017 raised a staggering £73,026,234.

It's a serious business: RSA volunteers manning the phones at the Peterborough call centre.

Staff also did something funny for money with  their own cake sales, prize raffles and even put their senior managers in the stocks and bid to throw custard pies in their face. RSA will match their fundraising efforts.

Comic Relief is a major charity based in the UK, with a vision of a just world, free from poverty. The charity works all year round to help make its vision a reality. Since it started in 1985, Comic Relief has raised over £1 billion with the support of the UK public. 


All that being funny for money takes a lot out of you, but with cake they powered on!

Kirk Bradley, customer services director, RSA, said:

“This was a great opportunity to help a fantastic cause raising millions for charity while having a great deal of fun and creating some friendly competition between our sites, all part of our ambition to create an amazing place to work.”
