Inter Office Olympics Gala Dinner

Last night the Westbury Olympic Team attended the Inter-Office Olympics Gala Dinner in support of COSMIC.  The dinner was held in the very swanky Cafe de Paris in Piccadilly.

It was a wonderful evening with sumptuous food, great company, but more importantly for a great cause.  Two of our staff members, Bhavesh and Danish brought back two bronze medals for Paper Toss and Beer Pong.

The evening progressed with an auction of 5 lots, ranging from a signed picture of Steve Redgrave to a special afternoon with a world renowned jeweller and diamond expert.  An auctioneer from Christies commanded the room with her gavel, and used her skills to raise thousands of pounds from the guests for these lots.  We also had the pleasure of the auctioneer sitting at our table.

We were introduced to a campaign called Give More, who Westbury will also be supporting this year.

The special guest was Olympic Gold medallist Andrew Lindsay, who moved the crowd with his emotional recount of how his son was looked after by the COSMIC team and the team at St Mary’s Hospital.

Our team have really enjoyed participating in the Inter Office Olympics Tournament, but most of all, we are really proud that we have been able to be part of a team of firms that have managed to raise thousands of pounds for COSMIC.

Do take a look at both websites, Give More and COSMIC to see more about the work that they do and how you might be able to help them.
