Other charity challenges throughout the month comprise of social media training with the Simon on the Streets team, a ‘People Bingo’ and networking event, sponsored silences, a karaoke battle, themed dress-up days and many more.

The birthday celebrations will conclude at Simon on the Streets’ Rough Diamond Ball on 19th May 2017, where the MacComms team will join other businesses for an evening of networking and entertainment, in support of the West Yorkshire-based charity.
