International Book Giving Day
On International Book Giving Day, we encouraged the WRS team to donate and exchange a book to foster their imagination, creativity, and joy of reading! Reading can have a profound impact on our understanding of the world and can help to broaden our perspectives. Throughout the year the team will continue to find a book new, old, or favourite, and donate.
Random Act of Kindness Day
Spreading kindness and creating a culture of belonging are at the core of our values. On Random Act of Kindness Day, our team embarked on a mission to make the world a little brighter. We encouraged our team to pay forward kindness to their co-workers– no matter how small the gesture. This was anything from making someone a cup of coffee or even taking the time to give someone a compliment. Every act of kindness counts!
Who doesn't love pancakes On Pancake Day, we organised a delicious pancake fundraiser. Our team whipped up stacks of pancakes and served them with an array of toppings and syrups. The proceeds from this event were donated to the Choose Love charity to support those affected by the Syrian and Turkey earthquake strikes.
International Women's Day
We celebrated International Women's Day by recognising the achievements and contributions of our female colleagues. We took the time to discuss how we can better support the development and advancement of our female employees. We are proud to be part of a movement that celebrates the achievements of women and we look forward to continuing to create an environment that promotes equality.
Global Recycling Day
Environmental sustainability is crucial and at WRS our mission is to invest in empowering a brighter future for all. On Global Recycling Day, we raised awareness about the importance of recycling and reducing waste. We organised recycling drives and encouraged our employees to adopt eco-friendly practices. We know that small steps can make a big difference, and we’re proud to be part of a movement that’s helping to make the world a greener place.

Stress Awareness Month
Mental health matters to us. During this month we opened the dialogue around stress and created a safe space for our team to have the conversation. We also encouraged our team to take part in ‘The 30 Day Challenge’, which encourages you to pick one action for your Physical, Mental, Social, Emotional, and Spiritual well-being to carry out every day.
Easter Bake Sale
Sweet treats for a good cause! Our Easter Bake Sale was a delightful event filled with an assortment of homemade goodies. Our team baked an array of delicious treats, including cakes, cookies, and pastries. All the proceeds from the sale were donated to MIND a mental health charity.
World Food Day
On World Food Day, our UK team explored food from around the world to raise money for MIND a mental health charity. We created this event to inspire our people to learn more about different foods and cultures, and even try them for themselves. The UK team either brought in delicacies for sale, or they purchased a number of sweet and savoury treats from our HQ in South Manchester.
We are immensely proud of the impact we have made through our charitable initiatives to date. It is our belief that small acts of kindness and collective efforts can create significant positive change in our communities. As we continue our journey, we remain committed to giving back and supporting meaningful causes that align with our values.
