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.

One of our most experienced event managers, Mike Horner, works his magicon 40 of the CCC iPad 2's...

No, he's not just playing 'master of the universe', he is in fact preparing a 300 guest iSpy Team Building Event in our home town of Brighton!

Although the team have all had a chance to have a good old play around with our new toys (The 'photo booth' app provided quite a few hours of cheek ache!) we do, sadly, sometimes have to do some work - although on days like this, we wonder if we can call it that!

Mike says of the award-winning iSpy "What makes iSpy so special is that it was all created in-house, so the team really knows all its in's and out's. We are lucky enough to have team members with the added skill base and drive to learn, to be able to create this interactive event that keeps on developing - the possibilities are now endless and we can tailor nearly every aspect so that our clients are getting a completely bespoke experience. And the clients' mischievous giggling at the end of every event is testament to iSpy's appeal...

One of our agency clients who recently took part in the iSpy said:

"We all had such a great time around London - I really appreciated the effort you and your team put into the day and we haven't laughed so much in a long time." 

Whether you have 5 or 500 people, are in Bath or Barcelona, iSpy will run exactly the same and that's why it's been so successful. With over 22 years experience in team building, we know some classics can become tired and typical - this is just one of the ways we keep our team builds fresh and unique.

Mike adds "my favourite thing about events like this is winning over the clients during the introduction alone. There are so many weird and wonderful challenges to complete that once I've explained what we have planned for them, even the most sceptical of clients will warm to the idea of running around a city looking for clues! And no one can wait to see the films the teams have made along the way - having a 'screening' of their movies as we announce the winners is sure to end the day on a real high"

So if you feel that your team build needs something unique, bespoke and hilarious, this really is something to consider.

Creative Director of CCC Events, Martin Clark, had this to say. “Our clients’ companies are doing well, and although everyone is tightening their belts in these difficult economic times, they are still prioritising spend on making their workforce stronger, more loyal, more productive and more effective. It seems obvious, but is often an area in which companies cut back in hard times.”
