Summer Social Raises Thousands to Support Local Young People

Published: Wednesday 31 August 2016 by CMPP

Over 100 individuals from local companies and organisations got together at the Village Hotel Club to enjoy an evening of Olympic themed entertainment, events and live music.

Throughout the event guests took part in a variety of challenges which included: horse racing, balloon pop, bronze, silver and gold quiz and the Olympic Limbo (well done Steph)!

In total £3800 was raised on the night from the raffle, tickets, auction and games. Thank you to everyone from across CMPP who brought a table and took part in the event! 

The Youth Aspirations Fund provides grants and volunteers to local organisations who are looking to raise aspirations and encourage progression in young people.

Grants are given to local schools, colleges, training providers, youth charities, businesses and individuals with unique ideas for projects that enable young people from any background to raise their aspirations and improve progression opportunities. A huge thank you to the legendary college band The Vice Squad and to our event hosts Ollie Rastall of Source Supplies and Tracy Jarvis of CMPP for giving up their Friday evening to support the event. 

Elan Goldsmith, an apprentice with CMPP, said: "Thank you for everyone who came, danced, took part in the events, sang, gave, donated and got involved. It was a truly memorable evening and one that raised a great deal of money through simply having fun and enjoying each others company."

Colleagues from Farnborough Business Park won the Olympic themed horse racing event, alongside the best dressed table. They won a bottle of champagne, kindly donated by Central Heating Services.

A big congratulations to Stephanie Hall of the Sixth Form College Farnborough who won the Olympic Limbo challenge and to Neil Dudman of Pear Tree Nurseries for winning the Olympic themed quiz, alongside best dressed individual on his hockey table!
