Herts Business Awards Finalists, Tate recruitment co-ordinated an EGGStremely generous collection of over 400 eggs and Easter treats for the children in Lister Hospital, from their clients, candidates and associates dotted around North Herts.

The team were overwhelmed by the enthusiasm embraced by literally everyone they asked to donate to the cause.  Within days of launching the 2015 egg appeal, emails and phone calls were coming in from every side of the county with business pledging their donations – Stevenage Community Trust pulling in 86 Easter eggs from their contacts alone!

As new Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce members, Tate immediately felt the benefits of this brilliant network as fellow members contributed chocolate treats and handmade presents without hesitation. The Major of Stevenage also made a donation.

Clients also made some financial donations, so Tate were able to hand over a cheque for £100 to the fundraising manager of the new children’s playroom for Lister Hospital too.
