At Goldex we love a challenge. We are passionate about fundraising for charities and our staff can often be found at the tops of mountains and at the start lines of marathons! We think it is so important to give as much as we can to worthwhile causes.
The Costa Foundation is a registered charity founded in 2006 which aims to relieve poverty in coffee growing communities; providing them with an opportunity for education. Costa recognises that the farmers who provide our exceptional coffee are an integral part of Costa’s success. By regularly fundraising for the Foundation, we are able to help provide money to build schools and provide water and electricity in some of the world’s poorest coffee-growing communities.
Every year, we launch a ‘fundraising summer’ where our staff complete various tough challenges to raise funds for the Costa Foundation. In the past, efforts have included a 10K run, climbing Mount Snowdon and the 3 peaks challenge.
However, our fundraising actions do not stop at the Costa Foundation. We have also been busy fundraising for other great causes including ‘Cancer Research UK’, ‘Help For Heroes’, ‘Get Kids Going’ and many more.
