On Friday 25th April 2014, Express employees took part in a dress down day to raise funds for the Cauda Equina charity. This is the only UK charity dealing with this serious neurological condition which occurs when the nerves of the Cauda Equina at the base of the spinal cord become compressed, though it can be caused by other trauma and can effect anyone, at any time. The charity raises awareness and provides for sufferers and their carers to connect with each other via the website and local support groups.
Overall £106.58 was raised by Express employees donating money to wear casual clothes to work. This amount was kindly doubled by the Express Solicitors’ partners making the final donation amount £213.16
