March 22, 2007

London, England -- npower’s support of Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning (WBCM) has been awarded the prestigious 2007 Hollis Sponsorship Award in the Charity and Community category, pipping three other nominations to the post. The presentation was at London’s Savoy Hotel earlier this evening.

The WBCM campaign is the third in which npower has been closely involved. The award recognises the company’s long-term partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support and its active engagement of staff and customers, raising awareness and funds across all 60 npower sites in the UK. The subsequent 10% increase in consumer recognition of the npower brand and four per cent increase in the number of customers who believe npower is ‘putting something back into the community’ were appreciated by the judges as valuable business benefits for npower, one of the UK’s leading energy providers.

One of the most successful facets of the campaign has been the extensive staff involvement achieved year-on-year. Each year, staff motivation is critical both to the success of the campaign and the fund-raising (around £180,000 has been donated to the charity through WBCM since 2004). Activities including head-shaves, fancy-dress cricket matches, themed cake bakes, coffee quizzes and a ‘scrap heap challenge’ for engineers – machines to carry a cup of coffee safely and securely were designed and created – have encouraged npower employees to get involved in the event and have fun doing so.

Carol Hart, npower’s community involvement manager, collected the award saying: “We’re delighted to win. It’s wonderful recognition of what is achieved by npower staff and customers. This year, we are also principal sponsor of the charity’s Walk Wonders event.”
