As part of our commitment to fundraise for Ty Gobaith Children’s Hospice (our chosen Charity of the Year for 2014-2015), a team of our employees set out to arrange a fishing competition during the Christmas break. Open to all of our staff, their family, friends and our supply chain, the event proved to be a huge success!
Held between Christmas and the New Year, the day kicked off at 9am on the banks of the Menai Strait, with a total of 52 entries all battling it out to catch the longest fish. After 4 hours in the freezing cold, everyone then headed to the nearby Carreg Bran Hotel in Llanfairpwll for a well deserved drink, an award presentation and a raffle draw.
The prize table included a number of fantastic items, all kindly donated by our clients, subcontractors, suppliers and a number of local companies. Alan Hughes from Holyhead was announced as the winner and Gareth Flynn from Llanfairpwll as runner-up. Well done to both. The total raised from this event came to an impressive £2,523.80! Thank you to everyone who took part.
