The support they’ve given
Octopus Group have raised over £115,000 for the charity. This included a generous grant for our Tram House Appeal to redevelop our secondary school, and a grant to purchase resources to equip the classroom in our Early Years’ service pilot; funding which was essential in getting these projects off the ground.
We have also run two extremely successful abseil events at the Octopus HQ. Staff, supporters and members of the public freefall abseiled down their office block raising over £17,000 across the two events.
“Octopus’ partnership with BeyondAutism has gone from strength to strength since it began in 2016, with individuals and groups of Octopus employees volunteering for the cause, whether that’s by decorating classrooms, helping to run pub quizzes, sports days, skills sharing and much more. It’s been particularly impressive to witness BeyondAutism grow in size and quality of education during the period, by setting milestones and delivering on them time and time again. I speak on behalf of everyone at Octopus Group when I say I’m proud to have played a small part in that journey.” Steve, member of the Octopus Group.
