Teamwork makes the fundraising dream work – CRASH Corporate Patrons Knauf and Volkerfitzpatrick unite for joint fundraiser

CRASH Corporate Patrons, Knauf and VolkerFitzpatrick came together to host a joint fundraiser in aid of CRASH, raising an amazing £1,692 to support our vital work. 

The amazing duo organised a Wildgoose chase, collaborating throughout the process and delivering a memorable team building afternoon.11 teams gathered at the Knauf showroom in Clerkenwell rocking their best fancy dress to take part in the GPS scavenger hunt, unlocking various immersive challenges and tasks as they stomped around London in the sunshine.

After completing their challenges, or as many as possible within the 1 hour 45 mins, teams returned to the showroom for refreshments, games and the charity raffle – all raising extra donations for CRASH.

Knauf and VolkerFitzpatrick harnessed the support of their supply chains as sponsors so the team entry fees could be donated directly to CRASH, whilst involving more of the industry in their event. In addition to entry costs, event company ‘We are Wildgoose’ have partnered with CRASH to offer 25% of the activity cost when companies mention CRASH!

Whilst the activity aimed to engage and connect teams from the host companies, it was great to see CRASH Corporate Patron, JNP Group enter a team after hearing about the event at the CRASH Corporate Patron Forum in April.

Congratulations to the winning team from Volkerfitzpatrick who impressed with their general knowledge and creative photo submissions.

A big thank you to CRASH Corporate Patron, Dulux who donated the iconic Dulux dog for ‘Guess the name of the Dulux dog’ – Shepton helped raise vital donations for our work constructing places that care for people.

“It’s great when two patrons come together to have some fun whilst raising money for CRASH. This event was also a great opportunity to involve our Supply Chain – thank you to those that sponsored questions in the challenge, you helped raise even more donations for CRASH.”
