OPERA CEO Esther O’Callaghan OBE at our TRN Retreat
The concept is simple, to use the power of our networks and work collaboratively to make a significant impact to the various charitable causes we support.
We wanted to do more than just talk about charity – we wanted to create a movement where we bring together our employees, are customers and our peers and immerse ourselves in a whole host of activities (whether big and small) that when added together enable us to achieve our overarching mission.
Every year, we select a handful of charities that someone within our network has a very significant attachment to, and we set ourselves a fundraising target to achieve.
Our mission is to then share the monies we raise amongst our chosen charities and make a difference to their causes.
