Investigo choose Panathlon as their ‘Charity of the Year’

Investigo is delighted to announce a new partnership with children’s charity, Panathlon that could help raise up to £100,000 to benefit young people with disabilities and special needs.

Investigo is running a campaign, ‘The Big Investigo Give’, which gives every individual within their organisation a fundraising target, as well as time off to take part in charity work and other volunteering opportunities. The company is aiming to raise £100,000 for charity over the course of 2019, with a substantial amount going towards Panathlon, their chosen ‘Charity of the Year’ for 2019. 

The target is set to be achieved through an array of fundraising events and opportunities, such as quizzes, music gigs and international cycle ride challenges, which will all help Panathlon expand their reach and will mean more disabled young people benefit from their range of sporting activities.

Looking to give their time, as well as fundraising, the first volunteering opportunity will be on March 5 when Investigo staff, who will receive training to be sports officials, will assist in organising the Panathlon South London Multi-Sport competition at Crystal Palace National Sports Centre.

Investigo, who are based in London but have offices across the country, believe that a diverse and inclusive working environment makes for the most effective workforce and is essential to reflect the society in which they do business.

Lisa Holberton, Head of Marketing for Investigo, said: “Investigo are proud to be supporting The Panathlon Foundation as our charity partner for 2019. Each year we look for a small charity that we can build a special bond with and really make a difference to. We saw something really special in Panathlon and loved the positive message that with a few small adjustments, everyone can be included. The charity works tirelessly to bring sporting opportunities to children all over the country and we are excited to see how the money we raise helps to extend their reach even further.”

Liz Johnson, Paralympic gold medallist and Panathlon Ambassador, added: “This is wonderful news! Investigo really are proactive in championing an inclusive workforce and community. Their support for Panathlon this year will prove to be the perfect partnership as it will enable many more young people with disabilities and additional needs to experience and enjoy the immense benefits of competitive sport which they are so often otherwise denied, whilst providing the Investigo workforce with an opportunity to interact and widen their experiences within this field.”
