When a Freemasons’ boxing gala was held in aid of the children’s charity, Variety, our MD, Joe Carty, was keen for Concept to support it, sponsoring a table for ten. The event was held in the newly revamped High Wycombe Town Hall.
A superb evening was had by a smart black tie crowd of 200 as they cheered along young boxers between the ages of 8 and 22. The Provincial Grand Master of Buckinghamshire said of the event, “This is what Freemasonry in the community is about – identifying areas of the community that need support in some way.” Chairman of WDC Cllr Iain McEnnis added: “WDC are committed to helping all areas of the community. Boxing is a valuable discipline and a life skill that gives many youngsters opportunities they may not have had otherwise, whilst teaching the individual self-control and respect for others.”
On Tuesday 29 April 2014 the Royal Engineers (DCRE) based at RAF Brize Norton organised a charity golf day in aid of prostate cancer. It is a popular twice annual event, attended by staff and contractors working on the station.
Concept supported the event by providing prizes for the after golf presentation. Dan Small and Paul Phillimore were there on the day representing Concept.
The day was a great success, with nice weather and a really fantastic dinner carvery. We look forward to the next event!
Congratulations to our team from Concept who raised £2,000 for Breast Cancer Care after completing a 10 mile walk in the area surrounding Blenheim Palace.
Donna and Steve Dampier, Gill Alexander, Julie Lamport, Vicky Jones, Matt Williams, Paul Phillimore along with Anthony Pardey and his dog Rio completed the distance in a respectable two hours and twenty-seven minutes. We are immensely proud of their achievement and would like to thank our supply partners whose generous sponsorship helped raise the £2,000.
Along with teams from the RAF and the Army, Concept participated in a golf day to raise money for Help for Heroes and the Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity. With good weather, it was a successful day all round with the total raised reaching £7,500, which was divided between the two charities.
