The 2015 EyefulPalooza

Friday, August 7th, 2015 by Matt

At last summer is on us, although it’s hard to tell with the UK weather which can’t decide if it’s going to be hot and sunny or chuck it down!

But at Eyeful, the sign of summer is when the sun is shining and the smell of slightly burnt sausages is in the air – as that means it’s ‘EyefulPalooza’ Time!

Yes, we Eyefulites aren’t just about working hard on creating the best presentations the world has seen, we also have the odd bit of downtime and do our bit for charity.

In recent times, Eyeful’s Head of Training, Liz has raised money by giving up chocolate for a month, Head of Engagement, Jayne has run the London Marathon and my chum in marketing Olivia has jumped out of plane all in the name of charity.

And for this year’s annual EyefulPalooza, we are having an afternoon of fun (Date TBC) to raise as much money as possible for our friends at the Alzheimer’s Society.

The last EyefulPalooza we had egg and spoon races, welly wanging, limbo, a tombola and a BBQ as we raised just over £200 for the Alzheimer’s Society.

The Alzheimer’s Society is a very worthy charity, Dementia is a life changing illness with no cure. But the Alzheimer’s Society help people through information, support, research and guidance so that people with the illness and can continue to live a fulfilling life.

To reaffirm our commitment to this great cause we are set to become Dementia friends when a senior member of the Central Government Dementia Taskforce visits us next week.

So to really make sure we do our best of this fine organisation in 2015, we’ve had many discussions and come up with a plan…

The 2015 EyefulPalooza is going to be MASSIVE!

The bouncy castle is on its way, the BBQ food is ordered and sumo practise is a daily activity around Eyeful towers.

We’ll be kicking off the afternoon with a rounder’s tournament for all staff, family and friends to partake in (with the entry fee going into the pot). Then there will be fun for the kids in the bouncy castle and sumo suit wresting for those who fancy letting their macho side out.
