As we get ready to take a break and enjoy time with our loved ones over the festive period, we’ve been reflecting on the fantastic efforts from our colleagues this year who have been raising vital funds and awareness for our 2023 chosen charities – Big Hearts Community Trust and Movember.

We first learned of Big Hearts through our partnership with Heart of Midlothian Football Club. It felt natural to join forces and help people in the local community. We set out to raise £10k, and thanks to generous donations and hugely successful events, we managed to raise over £30k for Big Hearts! 

The success of our fundraising efforts was not only dependent on monetary contributions. Volunteers played a vital role. By the end of this year, our team will have volunteered over 100 hours to help support Big Hearts events and spread awareness – their dedication and hard work were invaluable. 

CEO of Big Hearts, Craig Wilson, said, “The partnership between Big Hearts and Stellar Omada has greatly impacted the support we’ve provided for the community in 2023. Not only has Stellar Omada and their staff helped generate 3x our original target, but we’ve also had staff involved in delivering our vital work.”

“Partnerships like this help us provide quick and immediate support for people who need it, and Big Hearts have, for example, been able to provide thousands of drop-in lunches over the year.”

Each year, Stellar also supports the Movember Campaign. This year, our Tashtastic Team comprised of 18 mo bros mo sisters –  growing mos and moving the extra mile to raise vital funds and awareness on behalf of this campaign. The team has raised £1925 for Movember so far, with donations still incoming, which will go towards supporting men’s mental and physical health.

As we wrap up 2023 and reflect on the last 12 months, we’re incredibly proud of what we have achieved as a company. We look forward to announcing our 2024 Charity of the Year in the new year and our fundraising activities to support them.

Until then, we’d like to thank our colleagues, clients, partners, friends and families for supporting Stellar Omada. We couldn’t have done it without you.
