What a summer! With so much going on throughout Corstorphine + Wright, from work and events through to growing the staff and fundraising, we’ve had a fast-paced and active year so far.
Kicking off the summer in style, three offices hosted the Marie Curie Blooming Great Tea Party on various days throughout June – there was an incredible array of baked goods, tiny cucumber sandwiches, and a large amount of cake created by Corstorphine + Wright employees. The level of skill involved was staggering! Washed down with a jug of fruity Pimm’s, together we raised a massive £400.90 – this has been our most successful event to date!
Sally Buch (Office Administrator) got completely swept up by the buzz of charity fundraising and organized a wonderful event for the London office – a Scavenger Hunt! The two teams split across the centre of the city, traversing Oxford Street on their way to the final destination following riddles and clues written by Sally herself, to tuck into the generously donated winners’ pint (thank you @JackHornerPub!) Such a fantastic event proved a great boost for team enthusiasm, everyone worked very hard to solve the hysterical clues, and had a really great time to boot. Adding together all entries and additional charge for hints, the London office raised a fantastic £61 in one evening. An amazing and fun time was had by all, which has boosted other offices to follow suit – watch this space for another Scavenger Hunt announcement!
All the way up in Glasgow, our most Northerly office were roped in to a Marie Curie Stock Our Shops collection in July – they are so keen to be involved but of course distance proves tricky. Now a team of four, there was just Babak Sasan (Director), Charles Bell (Director), and Jason Forrester (Part II) at the time of collection. Well done to them all for raising a huge £80 for simply clearing out their wardrobes!
The glorious weather came to an end around the same time as our summer events. With the effort everyone has put in over the past few months, we’re delighted to announce our current fundraising total is £3,619.19! Absolutely delighted with the entire company and their involvement!
With our two huge September fundraisers terrifyingly close around the corner we’re looking forward to seeing how we’re able to round off the autumn!
In just over a week (change this dependent on blog release date!) twenty people are undertaking the Wolf Run, a 10k obstacle course in the slippery mud! https://www.gofundme.com/corstorphine-wright-does-wolf-run – all in the name of charity.
They will be swiftly followed by seven explorers cycling Velo Birmingham, 100 mile bike ride on closed roads across the Midlands – https://www.gofundme.com/corstorphine-wright-velo-bikers
