EYEFUL’S RED NOSE DAY ANTICS

Monday, March 27th, 2017 by Matt<

Last Friday saw Eyeful raise £125 for Red Nose Day! The whole team got involved by dressing up for the occasion, with our entire team of presentation designers deciding to clown around…

Our fundraising centred around a team fuddle, with lots of people cooking a variety of red dishes, everything from bacon cobs (with red sauce of course) to chorizo and red pepper skewers. There were even red desserts in the form of jelly and rocky road to name just a few…

As we all tucked into our team lunch our general knowledge (mine sadly lacking, apart from randomly in geography) was tested in Jack’s quiz.

Well done to Phil, Sam and Paula’s team who won the great prize of a lie-in… as they get to start work today an hour later, which is handy with the clocks going back (no jealousy here!).

So, well done to all who cooked and to everyone for making it such a charitable success. Roll on the Eyefulpalooza later this year…

WE DID IT!!!!!!

Thank you to everyone who attended the 2016 Eyefulpalooza here at Eyeful Towers, we hope you had a great time!

A HUGE thank you also goes to our friends and customers who didn’t attend, but still dug deep for our fantastic charity, Alzheimer’s Society

To top last year’s total is a great achievement and we couldn’t have done it without all of your donations…

Our thanks also go to the dedicated and hardworking Eyefulpalooza organisers Harri and Chris…

“Chris and I would like to thank everyone involved in this year’s event, whether that be buying or selling raffle tickets, donating to the cause, providing the catering, tending to the BBQ, helping with the event on Friday or just coming along to fill your face. Every penny we’ve made will be sent to the Alzheimer’s Society to be spent on an extremely worthwhile cause.”

Whilst our current total stands at £671 (at the time of writing) it’s never too late to donate and it couldn’t be for a better cause – so if you would still like to join the fight against dementia please do donate here

We raised how much for charity?!

Wednesday, September 16th, 2015 by Matt<

rsz_1eyefulupalooza_polaroidsThis year’s annual Eyefulpalooza took place on Friday just gone and was a huge success.

Not only did the clouds part and provide a beautifully sunny day, but we also smashed our charity target by almost double…

Our sponsored events of rounder’s matches, sumo wrestling and bouncing babies were complimented by chef Simon on the BBQ and also the debut gig of the Eyefulites…

I am also very pleased to say that we doubled our original target by raising over £500 for our chosen charity The Alzheimer’s Society!!!

And we are not stopping there, if you would like to donate to this very worth charity please just click here

Eyeful Presentations has an important announcement to make…

And to deliver this information to you, we thought we’d do what we do best, create an engaging story and apply the highest level of design quality.

Unfortunately this file got accidentally deleted (nice one Simon!) and we quickly cobbled this together…

Thanks for your understanding and patience.

Dementia Friends – Fundraising Summer 2015

Tuesday, August 11th, 2015 by Matt<

This week at Eyeful, we are all about our chosen charity, the Alzheimer’s Society.

And rather than just picking a charity and supporting it from afar, we believe in understanding what they are about and how they try to help people in need.

So yesterday we invited in Dementia Friend Champion Lee McGill to educate the Eyefulites on the disease and give us some advice on how we can spread the good word, as newly crowned Dementia Friends.

As Dementia Friends, we can now give support to those who suffer from dementia and we are able to understand and appreciate how the disease affects them.

Here’s our trainer Lee to explain a little bit more…

Meanwhile we continue our efforts this week to prepare for our annual EyefulPalooza fun day event, where we are already on course to beat what we raised last time, with all proceeds going to the very worthy Alzheimer’s Society.

If you would like to add your support to this extraordinary campaign, then just visit dementiafriends.org

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.

paloozaposterV1.6 - v3The afternoon will conclude with the main event – the RAFFLE!
