In last week’s post we reported on the celebrity-studded ICAP Charity Day and how we helped to make it happen with our minigolf equipment. Stars had a go on our Global-branded challenge putt hole to raise funds. Well now we’ve had some feedback from Megan Hornsby at Global:
I just wanted to say Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all here at Global’s Make Some Noise! We are so pleased to announce that from ICAP Charity Day on Wednesday 5th December we were granted an amazing £120,000! Thanks to your help, the money raised will go on to help fund and support small children’s and young people’s projects across the UK.
Thank you and I look forward to building our relationship with PutterFingers. Good luck with your new job!
And it’s goodbye to Shelley!
Eagle-eyed readers might have noticed the last sentence there in the feedback from Global. Yes, it’s true: after 9 years at the helm of Putterfingers and having built it into the leader in minigolf hire it is today, Putterfingers manager Shelley is moving on to pastures new. In typical Shelley style she is diligently making sure everything is in order before she hands the reins over to the very capable team of Jim, Richard, John and Alfie.
We are all sad to see her go – and a bit worried as well to be honest because her head contains pretty much everything there is to know about Putterfingers. But she’s doing a great job of making sure we’re not all left in the lurch after this Friday. We are referring to her departure as ‘Shexit’ because to us it’s as important an event as Brexit. (We did ask for a second referendum!) So thanks for everything Shelley, and the whole team wishes you the very best for the future!
Putterfingers have supplied a Challenge Putt hole to the celebrity-strewn ICAP Charity Day in the City of London. For a whole day, ICAP, a City broker, donates 100% of its revenue and brokers’ commissions to charity.
Brokers on the trading floor dressed up in silly outfits including dinosaurs, hippies and a school choir. Celebrities dropped in throughout the day to make trades on the phone and bank the commission for charity.
We supplied a minigolf hole for Make Some Noise, whom we also helped out in October at their own fundraising day. As the celebs poured in, they had a go on our Challenge Putt hole. Here are a few snaps from the #makesomenoise hole on a memorable day!
And here’s the Duchess of Cornwall pulling off what was reportedly a £200 million trade to raise £2750, which would have been the broker’s commission on any ordinary day.
Here’s Love Island winner Dani Dyer getting on the dog and bone to help out:
So we’re all celebbed out, and it was wonderful to see our equipment helping to raise funds for good causes!
