Colt has also committed to fund match the fundraising target of €15,000, bringing the total amount it’s hoping to donate to €30,000.

To reach this goal, Colt is hosting a company-wide virtual Quiz and multiple 5km runs, and employees have also been finding innovative ways to get involved, from donating the cost of a dinner out, to what they would typically spend on a month’s commute.

UK CSR Committee Chair and the organiser of the fundraising effort, Patrick Godden, explains the motivation behind the campaign; “Globally, now more than ever, it is vital that we come together to do what we can to support those on the frontline of battling Coronavirus.

“By supporting Doctors Without Borders, we can empower the charity to focus on vital relief efforts, including sending medical supplies, providing support to vulnerable communities such as refugee camps and protecting healthcare staff with essential personal protective equipment (PPE).”
