Staff at Allianz Cornhill have planned a series of fundraising events – from a cookie competition and dress-down days to charity bear auctions and raffles. The campaign, which hopes to raise as much as £55,000 for the charity, was launched with a balloon-pop at the company’s head office in Guilford.
