Charities We Support
RIG Locums actively supports Doctors of the World UK (DOTW) an international medical charity that helps vulnerable people affected by war, natural disasters, disease, hunger, poverty or exclusion get the healthcare they need regardless of income or status.
As a Doctors Recruitment Consultancy, we are proud to support a charity that brings medical care to people who face situations of extreme crisis in the UK and abroad and in a very short space of time DOTW has become a cause that is close to our hearts. In total we’ve raised over £1,700 since we started supporting DOTW a year ago.
Last year we began with a sponsored walk along the Thames, participated in the ‘Do it for Charity’ Santa Run, organised a Christmas Sweater Competition and held a number of activities for Pancake day including competitive pancake eating, flipping and a bring & buy sale with a prize for the best pancake maker. A small team of our more athletic consultants joined a Richmond 10K run and we’ve many more fundraisers planned in the coming months.
We also help to source volunteers for DOTW UK’s London Clinic and advocacy programme in east London that provides medical care, information and practical support to vulnerable people such as migrants, sex workers and people with no fixed address.
Each year the RIG Locums team aims to raise funds with a new challenge. To find out more about our lastest fundraiser please see our News.
