Raising money for Essex and Herts Air Ambulance Trust (EHAAT) and celebrating The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

We are so pleased to have raised £540 for EHAAT during our Jubilee Fundraising Celebration. Here’s what we got up to…

On the day all of the team arrived in patriotic red, white and blue, the office was decorated with lots of balloons and Union Jack bunting and the whole day felt celebratory. We enjoyed delicious, hot slices of pizza and a glass of cool Summery Pimms, whilst playing a fun game of Royal Bingo, ‘The £1 Coin Game’, which was surprisingly entertaining and Pin The Diamond On The Crown, all of which added to the final amount raised. Some of the team were very good at pinning the diamond, where as some pinned the diamond to the wall, we’re not sure the Queen would have approved!

Our tables were filled with scones, strawberries, jam, colourful cakes and sweet goodies from the theme ‘A Very British Afternoon Tea’ from the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance Trust (EHAAT). Some people took the time to bake their own and bring them in, some bought pretty Jubilee cakes, but all tasted great and we all enjoyed them. We also had a visit from a very important ‘Royal’ on the day!

The finale was a raffle where we had so many prizes. We have to thank our Director Adele, who donated a well-received half day holiday, the restaurants, Vojan in Ongar and Beauvoir Arms in Downham who donated vouchers, our team who brought in champagne and other gifts, the fun illustrated charity books and all the prizes donated and everyone who contributed to make the whole day a real success.

Well done #TeamOPRA!
