IT’S BEEN A YEAR SINCE WE REBRANDED FROM UNIVERSAL UTILITIES TO VERASTAR, SO TO CELEBRATE OUR FIRST BIRTHDAY AND AN AMAZING YEAR OF BUSINESS, WE DECIDED TO HAVE A LITTLE PARTY AND RAISE BUNDLES OF CASH FOR CHARITY, £2,115.30 TO BE EXACT.
Over the past 365 days, we’ve achieved so much here at Verastar HQ. From the launch of our new online brand, Woav to the acquisition of TBO Services Ltd, adding an insurance product to our portfolio and further emphasising our position as the leading provider of essential business services in the UK. And not forgetting our latest achievement of having passed market entry testing and awarded one of Ofwat’s first WSSL licenses.
It’s safe to say, we’ve had quite the positive year so obviously that cause for a little celebration. We held our party on October 12th, aptly named Verastar Day, where staff took part in countless fun activities to celebrate and congratulate their hard work and raise money for our affiliated charity of the year, When You Wish Upon A Star.
The regional charity is dedicated to granting wishes to children living with a life-threatening illness. Previous wishes that have been granted range from laptops to keep in touch with friends or family while the children are in hospital, to a magical trip to Disneyland to meet favourite characters, to even mingling with real-life stars.
After a year’s charitable initiatives we have raised over £15,000 for When You Wish Upon A Star. Our latest endeavour to raise the impressive £2,115, involved us planning a whole host of fun events going on throughout the day including a fun quiz, world food day, posing for pictures in our very own Twitter frame, wearing silly hats for the day, enjoying tasty treats from our Tuck Shop and a bountiful raffle where the top prize was an iPhone6 plus.
So with an impressive year behind us, here’s to another great and successful year ahead.
