Charity Corporate School Sporting Events in Birmingham Charity School Sports Day Event for Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice Selly Park, Birmingham A Fundraising Event As Part Of A Charity Fun Day After a successful it’s a knockout event, St Mary’s Hospice booked Gable Events once again. This time it was to run charity sporting events in Birmingham based on our school sports activity day. The charity fundraising event was held at our annual fete in Selly Park, Birmingham, where eight teams were recruited from local companies and organisations in Birmingham to take part. Companies who took part paid the entry fees and individuals within each team were encouraged to raise additional sponsorship money for the hospice. Gable Events provided six members of staff to ensure that the corporate charity schools sporting event ran without a hitch. To create the perfect school sports day theme, our event manager was dressed in mortar board and cape, conducting as headteacher and compere for the day. He encouraged friendly banter between the teams, sending anyone that misbehaved to write lines at the naughty desk! The additional staff refereed and supervised the twelve fully themed games which included traditional favourites like skipping, egg and spoon race, ball and bucket, bean bag balance, sack race and tug of war. Together, our staff ensured that everyone had a fun, safe and enjoyable charity school sports day. A Big Success! All the feedback received from the hospice and the teams was excellent and the event was such a fundraising success that Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice booked Gable Events for a further It’s a Knockout later in the year!
