In May & June Farnborough Business Park tenants once again showed their support for CMPP by purchasing raffle tickets for the CMPP ‘Grand Prize Draw’. Tickets were on sale in Receptions and some of the companies on-site. We sold over 400 tickets and many wonderful prizes were donated by CMPP Partners and business in the local area. 10 people from the Business Park won prizes which was great!
On Friday 23rd June 2017, members of the FBP Facilities Team attended ‘A Night at the Races’ for CMPP’s Summer Social. The annual event organised by CMPP welcomed just over 130 delegates. The Village Hotel kindly hosted the event in their Inspiration Suite and put on a delicious ‘racing’ buffet to tie in with horse racing season.
The event saw the culmination of CMPP’s annual Grand Prize Draw which helps the partnership to raise funds for the Youth Aspirations Fund (YAF). The best dressed table award went to Farnborough Business Park, we decorated our table in true race theme, with horses and rosettes to give it that Royal Ascot feel.
This year’s event raised a staggering £8,618. which includes the total from the Grand Prize Draw, delegates betting at the night, race sponsorship and ticket sales to the event. All funds from the evening will contribute to the Youth Aspirations Fund (YAF).
Applications to CMPP’s YAF open every October to local community groups, charities, not for profits, schools and individuals who may apply for funding for projects that will help raise aspirations in local young people. So far, the YAF has benefited 34 projects, totalling £57,467.00 and countless more value in kind via our volunteering and skills sharing initiatives.
