2019 marks a major milestone for Xperience with 50 years in business from 1969-2019. To celebrate our success and give back to the community, we are holding a number of fundraising events throughout the year for a selection of charities chosen by our staff. We have 4 primary events which our staff from across all of our locations will be participating in:
1 – Belfast City Marathon – May 2019
2 – Peterborough Dragon Boat Festival – June 2019
3 – Tough Mudder Ireland – July 2019
4 – Great Eastern Run – October 2019
We will also be running a number of events across the business including bake sales, dress down days and sweepstakes. As well as raising funds traditionally, we have also set up a dedicated Virgin Money page so that we are able to accept donations online.
Nominated by staff across our UK locations, we are supporting 3 charities including:

A big congratulations to the 2019 Belfast City Marathon Xperience relay team and those who took part in the 9-mile walk on 5th May 2019. The relay team was able to cut the previous year’s time by 3 minutes 13 seconds! Overall a fantastic start to our 50th-anniversary fundraising celebrations!
In October we are continuing our fundraising efforts with the Great Eastern Run. We had entries from across Xperience for this half marathon event and wanted wish all of those involved the very best of luck! However, due to flooding, the event was cancelled so we are donating all entry fees from the event to the charities!
As part of our 50th celebrations we provided computer equipment to local schools close to our office locations. The first donation was in Lisburn to Knockmore Primary with a new laptop and projector. We will be providing more equipment in the coming months to further locations.
As part of our 50th Celebrations, Xperience is an official drop off point for cash for kids in 2019! @cashforkidsni #MissionChristmas campaign
We have already had a number of toys and other gifts left at our head office in Lisburn but can always use many more!
This year, nearly 16,000 local children will wake up to nothing on Christmas Day, but YOU can help us change that!
Gifts for children aged 14-18 are needed most, here are some great examples we found while browsing the shops last weekend! (see the image for more details on what most required)
As we are providing so much help to so many charities as part of our 50th celebrations, why not take part and If you’re out shopping this weekend, please buy an extra gift and drop it off here!
