Today we are very pleased to announce that a Bolton-based company, dabs.com, have announced that they have named Bolton MRT as their charity of the year for 2010/2011.
dabs.com is one of the UK’s most successful online IT retailers with over 11 years of online retail experience. The company is headquartered at Wingates Industrial Estate in Westhoughton, Bolton, and is a wholly owned subsidiary of British Telecommunications plc (BT).
Over the coming 12 months, dabs.com’s 300 members of staff will donate money during dress down days, raffles, and other events with all proceeds going to Bolton MRT.
Over the past few weeks the staff held a vote to name their company charity for the coming financial year.
Included in the 300 members of dabs.com staff is Bolton MRT member Steven Fletcher. Speaking of the decision to name Bolton MRT as dabs.com’s charity of the year, Steve said “it was fantastic to see such support for Bolton MRT by my colleagues from around the company, and a great reflection of the high regard in which Bolton MRT is held by the public in the Bolton area.”
With the team having to fund the replacement of three vehicles this year, plus of course the team’s ongoing equipment replacement programme and running costs, the additional funds raised by the staff at dabs.com will be put to very good use.
