Thursday the 27th of July was the date of our first ever sponsorship of The Lions Club Annual Charity Dinner and Race night, held at the Beech Lawns in Weston Super Mare.
The venue was beautifully presented and extremely well attended with A Squared Technologies having three tables allocated for a mixture of valued customers, friends and associates of the company that have all been a part of our success over many years and especially during the our most recent move to our new premises at the beginning of the year.
Our evening started with a complimentary drink before we tucked into a fabulous three course meal supplemented by a huge array of Real Ale and Cider, then we got down to the serious business of horse racing!
All money raised was donated to Macmillan Cancer Support (in excess of £6000 so far). Serious amounts of cash were placed on each of the seven races and on specific horses in the auction races, of which there were three.
We were delighted to be joined on the evening with our friends from CR Manufacturing – Colin and Ann Rapsey, Colin Galbraith and his partner Angie, and representing QED – Simon Barlow and his wife Charlotte. We were also pleased to have with us Martin Coleman from Coleman Packaging, Rachel and Toby, Carol and Lyndon, Jo and David and Elliott and Mandy from Weblake plus Josie, Carolyn and Buster.
As the evening went on competition became more serious and the stakes got even higher, with varying degrees of success for each of our tables! Some of the great horse names that were backed were Katy, Music by Bach and Only a small one, for the specific auction races where each horse was sold to the highest bidder. As you can see below, our Managing Director – Kate Bach was able to keep her joy at winning practically unnoticed!
We would like to thank all our guests for attending and the organisers of what was a brilliantly supported and well run event. Unfortunately many of our customers were unable to attend the event this year but we hope to be back next year to sponsor the event again and try to increase the money raised for the amazing charity that is MacMillan Cancer Support
Here are some more memories from the night, we look forward to making more with our friends, colleagues and customers of A Squared Technologies Ltd.
