Quarterly Corporate Partnership Highlights
Summer Gala Success
Thanks to everyone who attended our Summer Gala, which took place on Thursday 30th June at Guildhall. We were delighted to welcome 360 guests, many of them our Corporate supporters. One of the highlights of the night was when Victoria, an ex-patient who was run over by a lorry when cycling, took to the stage to tell her deeply moving story with Dr Simon Walsh, one of the doctors who helped save her life. Thanks to the generosity of our guests bidding in the auction and donating on the night we have raised a fantastic £207,000 so far. Read more here.
We are always looking for new ways to engage our corporate partners and their staff through fundraising events and volunteering days, including team building opportunities. This year we have been piloting an apprentice-style challenge, known as the “Pots Challenge”, which has been really well received. “The day was fantastic, great organisation and a lot of fun!” CEB employee & Pots Challenge Volunteer.
