CCC Events are experts at providing clients with a good solid team building activity to meet particular needs or just a good fun day out as a reward. One great way to encourage staff teams to really throw themselves into their competitive nature is to provide incentives, and one way to do this is to play for charity!
Take for example the recent Starcom V’s MediaVest Games, who chose to hold their annual team building event at Beaumont House in Windsor. The clients request was to design an Olympic style event involving sporting games for 400 people – an amazing 42 teams! What’s more, Starcom were playing for Centrepoint and MediaVest for The Fred Foundation, both charities close to their hearts – and they were playing for money. £1000 to be donated to the charity of the winner!
With £1000 at stake and 21 teams playing for each charity, the seven fantastic activities were ready and waiting to be played. From target tennis and go-karts, to a giant ski biathlon and our hilarious (and rather wet) 4 x 400ml relay were some of the best! But the Human Table Football pitch was a sure favourite of the day, where team members are harnessed to the giant table football poles and have to try and score goals in the opponents end. It’s hilarious to watch, as naturally it’s hard to play football when you can only move sideways! There was a lot to play for and the scores for each of the charities teams would be totalled at the end of the fun filled day!
The staff on the day put the teams to the test on one area to the next in half hour slots, and the midway scores at lunch time gave them the incentive to give it their all in the afternoon to try and beat the opposition. Starcom, playing for the charity Centrepoint, had taken the lead by just a few points!
The whistles were blown at full time in the activity fields and the teams flocked to the outdoor bar for a well earned beer! The teams had slogged their guts out for a full day of hardcore sporting activities and this was the moment they were all waiting for… the final scores.
And the winner is… MediaVest playing for The Fred Foundation! The teams roar in glory and there is jumping for joy across the field. But then an even more generous gesture is made… they announce that Centrepoint also deserve a donation for Starcom’s points and they are going to match the winnings for both charities! That was £1000 donated to both charities for everyone’s efforts for the day. Ahhhh, everyone’s a winner, and fun was had by all!
