MailServe delivers during fundraising challenge
MailServe have made it their mission to raise as much money as possible for our 50th anniversary appeal, and have proudly presented us with a cheque for £8,597.50.
The franking machine specialists, based in Haywards Heath, organised a charity golf day as well as a weekend of adrenaline-fuelled fun in the Adrenaline Rush Xtreme charity challenge.
The Mailserve Charity Golf Day saw 51 golfers take part in the event held at Mid Sussex Golf Club on a sunny July day. The teams played 18 holes of golf and battled it out on the fairway to score points and be crowned winners. Participants enjoyed a well-deserved post-round pint and awards presentation, including a raffle with a host of fab golfing-themed prizes up for grabs.
Just as the team from MailServe recovered from their golfing sunburn, there was no time to take it easy as they prepared for the Adrenaline Rush Xtreme! The brainchild of MailServe Managing Director, Carl Turner, the challenge was not one for the faint-hearted. Co-sponsored by Yelo Architects and Rivervale, the event saw eight brave participants who travelled from Sussex to Chepstow in Wales and across to Salisbury in Wiltshire, to experience a giant swing and huge zip wire, as well as a 400-foot bungee jump AND to top it off, a skydive!
Carl Turner, Managing Director at MailServe, said: “I’m absolutely blown away by the success of our recent events for Rockinghorse. Both our charity golf day and Adrenaline Rush Xtreme challenge raised so much more money than I could have expected. I am astounded by the generosity of everyone who participated and sponsored us along the way. I know that Rockinghorse make such a difference to the lives of the children they support, and I’m honoured to be part of that. A special mention to Isla from MailServe for all her hard work in helping to execute the event and make it such a success.”
Hannah Seltzer, Events Fundraising Coordinator at Rockinghorse, added: “Huge thanks to Carl and the team from MailServe for their hard work, dedication and organisation of such a fantastic event. Thanks also to event sponsors Yelo Architects and Rivervale, and to all those who faced their fears and took part in a weekend of Adrenaline-fuelled challenges. Together they raised an amazing amount of money towards our Sussex Giving for Sussex Children 50th anniversary appeal.”
We aim to raise £500,000 for our Sussex Giving for Sussex Children appeal, to be split between 10 children’s centres and paediatric services in Sussex. To find out more about these projects, please click here.Back to news
