On Friday 28th September, The Resort Group gathered for the last barbeque of the Summer as the Sales Support team came to the end of their month of fundraising. The food started to be served to the hungry crowd at around 5pm, with all members of staff coming to the front of the office to sample some of the finest cooking around, courtesy of September’s department – Sales Support.
The remainder of the team donated by purchasing the delicious hot food and drinks on offer. To help aid a good’s night on the uncomfortable office floor, the team then treated themselves to a well-deserved drink at a nearby establishment. It didn’t exactly go to plan, though, as they soon found out! Despite heading back at a reasonable hour to watch a scary film at the office (and in the pitch dark), the team seem to have had a very restless night. It doesn’t matter as much when you’re in good company and it’s all for a good cause, we’re sure they would all agree…
All in all, the barbeque and sleep out raised a fantastic £420 when all of the sponsors have paid. It is a brilliant effort from the team and we are grateful for their sacrifice on that uncomfortable floor! We can’t wait to find out their final total in what has been a great penultimate month.
Next month, the Marketing and Accounts team have a Halloween extravaganza planned to end the fundraising festivities with a bang. Keep your eyes peeled for the spooky details as the last department take the reins on the Cape Verde Foundation challenge. With everything to play for in the race for the November crown, can Marketing and Accounts raise the most money at the final hurdle?
