adi Group Help Fundraising Efforts At Rushden’s Funfest
On Sunday 19th May four teams from across the Group (plus friends and family of the Group) took part in the annual Rushden Chichele Funfest It’s A Knock-Out competition.
This is the fifth year in a row the Group has entered a team in this event and our largest turnout to date with support from adi Mechanical, adi Electrical, adi Healy Compressor Services, adi Environmental, adi Projects, adi TEGG Service and adi Digital.
Apart from providing a great day out for the whole community, the primary purpose of Funfest is to raise funds for local charities. It is jointly organised by three local groups – The Rotary Club of Rushden Chichele, Rushden Round Table, and Cynthia Spencer Hospice – and all proceeds are divided equally between these three groups. This year the event raised over £7,800 – the largest total it has raised to date.
Stephen Forrester, Managing Director at adi Mechanical said of the event, “We were pleased to once again be able to support this annual event with our largest adi Group contingent to date. All teams from the Group put on a stellar show negotiating all kinds of fun challenges and inflatable obstacles with adi Electrical emerging victorious out of the adi companies and narrowly missing out on the Top three teams.”
“It’s fantastic to have been able to contribute to the largest fundraising total the event has raised to date for the Northamptonshire Association for the Blind, Northampton Domestic Abuse Service National Children’s Tumour Leukaemia Cancer Trust (NCTLC Ltd) based in Earls Barton.”
“We look forward to taking part again next year.”
The Chair of the local Rotary committee sent in a personal note thanking adi Group for their support saying, “A fantastic effort from all at adi and obviously very much appreciated. The support of adi on this years event has really made sure that we have achieved an astonishing success with record profits coming back into the community. Once again thank you so much for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you all again next year.”
