Our Charity Work

Malaria No More UK

Rentokil Initial have been supporting the charity Malaria No More UK (MNMUK) since 2011, having raised £26,000 by donating £1 for every staff member to complete the businesses annual colleague survey. In 2015 after four successful years, Rentokil Initial wanted to expand the partnership to increase funds raised and bring greater engagement with MNMUK’s work.

As a result, Rentokil Initial UK colleagues have been very active ever since in coming up with different ways to raise funds.

Why Malaria No More UK?

As a global leader in pest control, with our Rentokil business, we strongly feel that MNMUK is an important organisation for us to support. They work to end malaria by encouraging governments to place this killer disease at the top of the international development agenda, increasing public awareness in the UK and by investing in malaria control projects in Africa. Rentokil Initial is committed to helping all elements of the small MNMUK team’s mission.

1) Inspiring colleagues to unite in fundraising for a cause where small amounts can save lives. Malaria is spread by mosquitoes and sadly, a parent loses their child to malaria every single minute, yet as little as £1 can save a child’s life.

2) Leveraging our networks to help MNMUK boost public awareness of malaria.

3) Demonstrating UK business leadership in the malaria campaign to influence broader support.

Malaria can be prevented and treated, and since 2000 child death rates have been halved. MNMUK has taught the Rentokil Initial team that we can be the generation that makes malaria no more.

Getting Involved

We are a very creative family at Rentokil Initial (RI) and we love our colleagues to come up with any ideas (the wacky, the fun and the sensible) for how to raise funds for our chosen charity Malaria No More UK (MNMUK).  From an epic cycle ride that departed from our Camberley HQ and travelled over 200 miles to Paris, to an impressive bungee jump by Chris Pickles, our colleagues embraced our support of MNMUK in 35 different ways during 2016.  

The amount raised in 2016 has taken the total fundraising by RI for MNMUK to over £125K and fundraising initiatives during the year included:

  • The company continuing to pledge £1 for each new customer signing up our online reporting tool myInitial and for completing e-surveys that our businesses have run with existing customers.
  • C2P – Rentokil Initial employees cycled from our head office in Camberley, Surrey to the French capital Paris, covering an epic 210 miles in just three days and raising over £10,000 in the process for MNMUK..
  • We have been back out on the road with our Rentokil Initial School Tour – during 2016 we presented to 2,575 children (aged between 4 and 14 years) and visited 21 different schools across England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.  For every mile we clocked-up on our tour (2,487 miles over the year), the company donated £1 to MNMUK..
  • Vertigo on Verzasca! – Chris Pickles an Area Operations Manager for Rentokil Pest Control followed in the footsteps of 007 by bungee jumping off the 220m high dam in the Verzasca Valley made famous in the James Bond film Goldeneye. Overall the jump raised £1,940.66 in style for MNMUK.  
  • Tough Mudder - Ben O'Shaughnessy & the Battleship Boys completed a team event that tested their strength and stamina. A challenging 10-mile obstacle course with mud, freezing cold water, electricity and fire was completed to raise over £2,500 for MNMUK.

 

During 2017 we will continue our support of MNMUK and I am sure our colleagues will come up with ever more inventive ways to do so.
