What better way to spend an evening than battling it out with local business friends to raise money for a fantastic cause? That’s precisely what Lamberts did recently, at the Connect 4 World Championships (Norfolk).
Lamberts’ joint MDs Trina Beare and Neill Ives attended the fundraising event, along with our IT consultant Marcus Beare, Operations Supervisor Jordan Jessett, and Sales Assistant Isaac McCrystal. Ready for some nostalgic fun, they headed down to St James Mill on 5th April, with their sights on the prize!
The event was hosted by Jarrold Training, a valued customer of ours, and organised by its Leadership and Management Trainer, Elliot Symonds. The evening was all in aid of Priscilla Bacon Hospice, for which Jarrold Training is a Gold Member of its 500 Club – a local business community that pledges to raise funds over the course of the year for the hospice.
Local businesses were invited to enter a team of five, battling it out in rounds against other businesses to reach the nail-biting final for the coveted trophy. It wasn’t all Connect 4, attendees could also enjoy some healthy competition with an array of other vintage gaming on offer, including KerPlunk, Rebound, Dragster and Downfall. On the night there was also a raffle, sweets, and a pizza truck meaning the guests had plenty to keep them busy whilst waiting for their turn to play.
A whopping £4,477.78 was raised at the event. Lamberts were absolutely thrilled to be involved and contribute to the fundraising for this incredible cause. We had a wonderful time – even though Neill was thrashed 2-0 in the semi-finals!
