Cintra Staff give priceless gift in support of National Payroll Week

This week marks the annual celebration of all things payroll: National Payroll Week.  In honour of this, Gateshead based Cintra HR & Payroll Services has organised a day of donating for its ever willing and generous staff:  

Having previously organised a company blood donation day, the inventive staff at Cintra decided to take things one step further this time round.  Donating blood is undoubtedly a vital and worthwhile gesture, however making sure that blood gets to where it is needed in an emergency is also key…and that’s where Northumbria Blood Bikes come in.

Northumbria Blood Bikes is a registered charity established by local volunteers to deliver essential blood and urgent medical supplies, out of hours, between hospitals and other healthcare sites in North East England.  Outside normal office hours, hospitals rely on taxis or couriers to transfer urgent medical supplies or test samples between hospitals and other sites. Blood Bike groups, across the country, offer to carry out this service free of charge, ensuring the limited resources of the NHS can be used where it makes a difference.

In June 2017 Northumbria Blood Bikes was the proud recipient of The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service - the MBE for voluntary groups and Cintra was keen to support their endeavours.
