Activity Day - Team Building in Devon

Last week we headed to the seaside for an Activity Day at the fabulous Langstone Cliff Hotel. Our clients got to grips with Archery, Rage Buggies, Laser Clay Pigeon Shooting and Geese Herding, with magnificent sea views as a backdrop. Starting off with Archery, CCC staff were extremely impressed with the skills of everyone involved - including one sharp shooter, who managed to split his first arrow with his second!

We then moved on to Geese Herding, which involves directing a real sheepdog and geese around the course, often with hilarious results!

Next was Rage Buggies to kick adrenaline levels up a gear - a fast-paced thrill ride which had the teams buzzing.

We finished the day in a slightly more gentrified manner, with a spot of Laser Clay Pigeon shooting. Team GB's recent success in Shooting events at London 2012 inspired the teams to give it all they had, and we saw some brilliant scores as a result.

All in all, it was a great way to spend an afternoon by the sea - for our clients, and for us! Event Manager Steve commented:

"I love this event because it's a chance for our clients to get to do activities they might not otherwise. There's always plenty of banter about highest scores and who's going to win, and it's always fun to get out of the meeting room and into the great outdoors."

CCC Joins Compton Hospice Fundraising Day in Wolverhampton

Team CCC recently had a great day working for the fantastic Compton Hospice Charity, in West Park Wolverhampton, where they were trying to raise money and awareness for the hospice by putting on a family fun day. It's just the kind of thing that the Team Building Company of the Year like to do with their weekends... CCC Events Charity Fun Day

The Compton Hospice does some really amazing and selfless work and so it was a charity that CCC were very happy to be working for.

Compton Hospice has been supporting patients facing a life-limiting illness, and their families, for 30 years; Our purpose is to make a difference to people’s lives when their illness is no longer curable; We do this by treating people, not conditions, whether their needs are physical, psychological, social or spiritual.

I was more than happy to get involved in the day, travelling up north with my team, loaded up with off-road radio controlled cars, giant board games, archery, laser clay pigeon shooting and of course, our enormous mobile climbing and abseiling tower!

Mobile Climbing Tower from CCC events

On the day we were not totally convinced that our British summer weather was planning to be on its best behaviour, so we took plenty of provisions to keep the public (and ourselves!) dry - but the heavens were smiling on us and the majority of the day was actually sunny!

We saw thousands of families from Wolverhampton throughout the day coming to have a go at all the activities - most impressively many children who were brave enough to reach the top of our 40 foot climbing wall - one seven year old even informed me that it was 'no big deal' and that he would 'triple somersault off the top if we let him' - kids eh? For some reason I decided not to tell him that I had only made it half way up that morning...

CCC climbing and abseiling events

Our experienced climbing instructors took each participant through a one-on-one session all the way to the top of the tower making sure everyone made it safely and with a new found love of climbing.

Even our staff got involved in the action - here you can see Kenny, one of our most experienced team members, looking particularly proud of himself for making it all the way to the top!

All in all it was a marvellous day to be a part of and we can't wait to get involved in the next one - perhaps we'll even win the raffle this time!

If you think your team are brave enough to face our climbing wall or even try our abseiling or death slide events why not get in touch and talk to one of our team about our outdoor events on 0845 006 06 06 or visit our website for more details.
