MT Cold Storage Solutions celebrated its 10th Anniversary in May this year – hosting a spectacular Summer Ball.
They not only celebrated their business success with customers, suppliers and friends, but raised money for an incredible cause – Acorns Hospice.
After visiting Acorns Solihull and witnessing the amazing work they do every day, MTCSS wanted to support the charity and raise as much money as possible at the Ball.
Held at Worcestershire County Cricket Club, the evening started with champagne as the marquee flooded with guests whilst the MTCSS team started the sale of Raffle tickets. Following an introduction by our MD – Martin Borg – the guests sat down to a fantastic three course meal.
Joanne Danaher from Acorns Selly Oak led the speeches, bringing tears to many people’s eyes – her words really hitting home the importance of the charity’s work, and the life changing impact of donations from the public.
A surprise speech from Martin’s son, James, warmed the hearts of the guests – followed by a speech from Martin, thanking his customers, suppliers, friends, family and employees who have contributed to the company’s success.
With the formalities over, the raffle started – the lucky ticket winners got to choose from over 16 prizes, from a £600 travel voucher to a case of wine. The auction saw many hands in the air from the generous guests, with auction prizes ranging from a bottle of Pol Roger champagne to a signed WCCC cricket bat.
A huge thank you to all who donated the incredible prizes. Without their generosity we wouldn’t have been able raise as much as we did.
Raffle and auction complete, prizes collected and money counted – more drinks were poured and more shapes were thrown on the dancefloor as the DJ took centre stage. Ending on a high, all the guests had a laughter filled evening with the drinks flowing freely – and most importantly money raised for an incredible cause.
The evening was a huge success, raising £4,701.85 at the ball from donations, ticket sales, raffle tickets and the auction. With a total of £8083 being donated to Acorns, thanks to the generosity of Martin and everyone who attended and supported the evening.
