The day started off with a yummy bake sale, followed by games, a quiz and culminated with our traditional auction.
The auction had a plentiful turnout. Starting with pizza for lunch for everyone and then the auction of 51 amazing lots this year.
Our IT team set up video conferencing software to be able to connect the three offices via the big screens, using Skype for Business and our new round-table panoramic cameras.
The auction items were generously donated by our clients and neighbouring businesses.
This year we had a vast variety of items, which included beautiful Buckley’s jewellery, a selection of tickets and day experience vouchers and a Quadruple Supercar Blast and Hot Ride.
The auction also offered stunning clothing and shoes from Coast, many exciting gadgets from High Street TV and gifts from F Hinds to make perfect Christmas presents.
The artisan gin lots from Slingsby Gin were very popular and had lots of bids. However, the lot of the day was a beautiful Radley bag, which had a very exciting round of bidding, with lucky Vickie Bailey becoming proud owner of the gorgeous bag.
Other winners of the day were:
- FIFA Tournament Winner – Zac Haase
- Guess the Number of Sweets – Tyler Berry
- Guess the Bear Name – Zina Arib
- Quiz – Lifestyle Outreach Team
- Pop the Pudsey Balloon – Everyone was a winner at Harrogate and Wetherby!
With the donations of our three offices and all charity activities, we raised a new record amount of £3,000 including a contribution from the IDHL Group!
A big thank you to our Social Committee and everyone who contributed to make the day a success!
