Supporting Yodel Employees
The Yodel Foundation has been running since January 2014, born out of our desire to raise money for charity and offer our employees support should they ever find themselves in need.
The Yodel Foundation covers three main areas:
- Macmillan Cancer Support – Macmillan Cancer Support has been chosen by our colleagues as our nominated charity. We regularly take part in fundraising events in aid of Macmillan, including the Macmillan Coffee Morning, Christmas Jumper Day, and the Tour Ride cycling event. So far, we have raised over £8,000 for the charity.
- Retail Trust – The Trust is a confidential support system offering retail workers hardship loans and advice. It also includes a counselling helpline for personal crises such as divorce, sickness, bereavement, and marriage guidance.
- Yodel Distress Fund – The Fund was set up to assist our colleagues when they find themselves in need. For example, when one of our employees had her home destroyed by fire – a very stressful time for her and her family – the Yodel Distress Fund donated £2,500 to help them towards a new home.
The Yodel Foundation is continuing to grow and we have big plans to extend the services we offer and increase the work we do with our chosen charity.
