At the beginning of the year, we announced SNAP as our chosen Charity of the Year. Since then, we have been on a mission to raise as much money for the charity as possible!
Our most recent fundraiser took place last week and was themed ‘Pitch and Putt’. On the day, we were joined by our clients and friends Clive Emson, MLM, Fusion Project Management, Fluid Business Coaching, LB Insolvency, Hill & Abbott, Fisher Jones Greenwood, Rubix, Wes Weld, Essex Cricket Club, Bluefin, Handelsbanken and SNAP.
Before the event, the unpredictable nature of British weather had been the cause of some nervousness, so you can only imagine our delight when the sun (and heat) made a special appearance on the day, with the temperature soaring to 28 degrees!
The teams arrived in the early afternoon ready to tackle the course! They were equipped with clubs, golf balls, a scorecard and of course, some yummy Krispy Kreme donuts!
The aim of the game is to go around the course and hit the golf ball into the hole. However, some of us discovered that the game was not as easy as it may sound and even seasoned golfers learnt a thing or two from first-timers! In the midst of competing for 1st place, the day was full of nothing but fun and laughter!
Once everyone had completed the course, we all gathered together; the scores were then counted and Wes Weld were announced as the day’s winners, alongside runners-up Clive Emson and Handelsbanken.
Afterwards, guests mingled over some tasty appetisers before the raffle draw. Vouchers for Hairitage, a signed Essex cricket bat, and a dining experience at The Wine Cellar were just some of the prizes to be won! We are incredibly thankful to all the local business who kindly donated to the raffle draw.
We would also like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to everyone who came along to the Pitch and Putt and helped support the inspirational work of SNAP. Because of your generosity, we raised just over £1000!! Not only are we appreciative of your monetary contributions, but we are also very grateful for your consistent support, which is invaluable to us.
As pleased as we are with the money raised so far, our fundraising efforts do not stop here as we have plans to WALK ON FIRE!!
On Saturday 29th October, we will be participating in the Brentwood Community Firewalk, as we continue to raise money for SNAP.
We would love for you to support us! You can make donations by visiting our JustGiving page.
