Celebrating our 15 year Anniversary in style!

On Thursday 12th September we invited our staff, clients and suppliers to help us celebrate 15 years of business with a day of fun, food and dancing.

The festivities kicked off at midday where staff were treated to a delicious BBQ before splitting into teams to try their hand at a series of challenges in the grounds of their head office at Pippingford Park Manor in East Sussex. Competition between the ten teams was fierce as the groups took on laser clay pigeon shooting, a bungee run, bouncy castle volleyball and a climbing wall, as well as a series of puzzles and brainteasers scattered around the course which everyone threw themselves into with great enthusiasm!

After a very energetic afternoon, the team were more than ready for our clients and service partners to join the party for a fantastic evening under the stars in a beautiful tipi tent positioned in the stunning grounds of the Pippingford Estate in the heart of the Ashdown Forest.

Guests were welcomed with bubbles, canapés and fire dancers before enjoying a selection of street food, a gin bar and fantastic music from live band, Dirty Weekend. The evening also featured a live and silent auction in aid of food sustainability charity The Felix Project, with guests bidding for prizes such as spa days, holidays in France and even a private sailing trip around the Solent, raising an incredible £6,000. Coupled with the money raised from our staff walk the day before, the totals getting close to almost £7,000 - so far!
