Incentive Charity Motorcycle Run

Incentive Charity Motorcycle Run

A group of intrepid motorcycle enthusiasts from Incentive FM Group companies together with guests raised in excess of £5,000 as they took part in their Inaugural Charity Motorcycle Run. The event – which started at the famous Rycas café at Box Hill in Dorking, Surrey – saw the riders set of for a 2 hour ride to Meon in Hampshire along a beautifully scenic ride through Horsham, Petworth and Midhurst before enjoying a hearty lunch at Loomies café. The more direct journey north in the afternoon, again lead by John Mansfield, Incentive Lynx Security Control Room Manager, took in the delights of Guildford (not all intended!) and everyone safely completed the 110 mile round trip by mid-afternoon. The motorcycle exotica included a vintage Harley Davidson, Classic Italian Laverda Jota, an original six cylinder CBX 1000 Honda from the 80’s, two BMW’s and a variety of fast a gleaming modern machinery.  The long distance award went to Liz Mc Laughlin and Chris Windass who rode their respective bikes from Nottingham that morning and returned the same day…….The money raised for Scotty’s Little Soldiers will help support children who have lost a parent serving in the British Armed Forces.

Jeremy Waud, Chairman of Incentive FM Group, said:

“This event provided the perfect opportunity to mix a variety of staff, suppliers and friends on the open road, whilst making a significant sum of money for a fantastic charity. We all had a great time and encourage others to join in the fun next year – route to be agreed and it will be Friday 29th May 2020.

Incentive QAS & SWC take on Rough Runner 5km

Incentive QAS & SWC take on Rough Runner 5km

It’s that time of year when the Incentive QAS team are putting themselves through a grueling challenge in the name of Scotty’s Little Soldiers – our chosen charity partner that is set up to assist bereaved families of our armed forces.

On the 8th September a team of 20 of us will be participating in the Rough Runner 5km obstacle race in London’s Finsbury Park. Rough Runner is a game show inspired obstacle race combining challenges from Gladiators, Ninja Warrior, Takeshi’s Castle and Total Wipe Out.

We will get wet, we will get tired, and we possibly may get injured (hopefully not though!)

Each member of the team has been tasked with fundraising just £100 each to hit our £2,000 target. If you are able to donate to this worthwhile cause and show your support for the Incentive QAS Team, please follow this link and give what you can.

Your support, as always, is greatly appreciated and if you can make it on the day to cheer us on we look forward to seeing you.

Thank You
Jamie

Charity Ball Raises over £15,000

The Northern Charity Ball, hosted by Incentive FM Group, was held last week in Sheffield and was a resounding success, beating last year’s amount by raising over £15,000 for this year’s chosen charities, Scotty’s Little Soldiers and Cash for Kids.

Guests from the facilities management sector and wider business community put on their luckiest attire and took part in the extravagant charity ball and casino night, which was held at the Hilton Doubletree Hotel in Sheffield Park. The ball, now in its fourth consecutive year, was hosted by Incentive FM and included a blind and silent charity auction, a raffle, and a three-course dinner, and enjoyed music from a live band.

Scotty’s Little Soldiers is dedicated to supporting bereaved children who have lost a parent whilst serving in the British Armed Forces, and Cash for Kids works to provide underprivileged and sick children in local communities with a brighter future.

Glenn Wilson, Operations Director at Incentive FM Group, said:

“We are thrilled with how the successful the event was, and believe it was our best to date. Thanks to the generosity of all our guests, we were able to raise an incredible £15,000 for Scotty’s Little Soldiers and Cash For Kids, completely smashing last year’s amount.”

October 2017 Incentive FM Group Client drinks

October 2017 Incentive FM Group Client drinks

The October 2017 Incentive FM Group Client drinks party was held for the second year running at the City of London Club in Old Broad Street. Our lively gathering of friends, clients and staff amounted to more than seventy people who were treated to a fine array of food and wines with an Italian twist.

For further entertainment and cultural enlightenment, we were treated to the musical accompaniment of a string quartet and for the art lovers, Frank Gambini produced two portraits during the evening in charcoal whilst his model sat patiently awaiting a view of his completed work.

The two pictures were auctioned at the end of the evening with all £ 1,600 raised going to our current charity, Scotty’s Little Soldiers. Many thanks to the winning bidders, Chris Denness of Capco and Howard Morris of Crossways developments.

The evening was a great success and an opportunity for friends old and new to mix and mingle.

 

Clay Pigeon Shoot – 2017

Clay Pigeon Shoot – 2017

The light rain didn’t dampen proceedings as, Incentive FM Group’s annual clay pigeon shoot raised over £10,000 with extra donations still coming in, for Scotty’s Little Soldiers. The event was held at the fantastic EJ Churchill Shooting Ground in High Wycombe – home to the World Championships of Shooting. The day comprised of a welcome breakfast, safety briefing, shooting, post shoot champagne, lunch, prizes and fundraising auction. All the guns were joined by Stuart Robinson and Kate Dring from Scotty’s Little Soldiers Charity, to provide education and discussion about the charity, as well as assisting with the raffle and auction.

Fourteen teams (70 guns) entered, with each ranked at regular, occasional and novice standards. For the first team a flurry system was adopted, meaning that everyone shot together as a team. There was stiff competition across the Incentive FM Group companies, as well as several key clients and suppliers.

The winning team was Gavin Jones Ltd with a staggering 310, with Barclays and the Incentive FM Group team, captained by Chairman Jeremy Waud in joint second place on 301. Amusingly, the Bluewater Shopping Centre team took home a cuddly pheasant toy each for the clay conservation prize with a score of 187.

The instructors for the day were tasked with voting for the best male and best female of the day, judged on number of clays hit and the difficulty of the clays hit. Claire Huffman of Morphose took the ladies prize, and Andy Mighall of Gavin Jones was the High Gun for the males.

Incentive FM chairman Jeremy Waud said:

“Yet again, the charity clay pigeon shoot was a fantastic and fun event and we are thrilled to have raised over £10,000 for Scotty’s Little Soldiers, which is a very worthy cause.
