Martyn Colebrook, Managing Director of Colebrook Bosson Saunders presented a cheque to LBCC to kick off the organisation’s fundraising effort for the year, and commented, “We were delighted to have hosted the Little Britain Challenge Cup reunion again from our Union Street showroom. We were especially thrilled to have the British Paralympian sailing team with us and have this opportunity to wish them all the best in their quest for gold this summer!”
Tony Poole of Sheppard Robson, 2012 LBCC Chairman responded, “We are equally pleased to be back at Colebrook Bosson Saunders, in this, our Silver Anniversary year. They are excellent hosts, who have not only put on a fabulous evening, but also made a generous donation to support 2012 LBCC chosen sailing charities.”
As well as the serious business of supporting the GBR Skandia Sailing Team, there were fun and games for sailing fans of all levels of ability including a remote control boat race, sailing themed ‘Guess Who’ and a rowing contest. Representatives from other charities supported by LBCC’s fundraising were also in attendance, including the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust, Jubilee Sailing Trust and the Cirdan Sailing Trust. Last year LBCC raised £40,000 for its nine selected charities.
