Raffles and Teambuilders: a fundraising success from Mi-space and Nationwide Building Society

4th November 2021

Mental health awareness, fundraising, and ‘thank you’ to all the tradespeople on site for what we’ve collectively achieved so far – all in one fun teambuilding afternoon at Oakfield, Swindon.

We downed tools for the afternoon, and thanks to generous donations from our supply chain partners, Conlons and Cotswold Brickwork, a raffle raised £1,085 for the Lighthouse Club.

Mi-space Project Director at Oakfield, Rob Bennett, said: “As an annual supporter of the Lighthouse Club, we want to raise as much awareness and funding as we can for the brilliant work the charity does supporting our industry’s workforce. We also want people on site to know that help is available during times of hardship. Raising awareness was an important part of the event, as well as showing our appreciation for the hard work and commitment of everyone on site.”

‘Mick the Brickie’ proved himself as the fastest hammer-hand at Oakfield, winning the teambuilding competition “I’ve Nailed Oakfield” by hitting six 4-inch nails into a timber sleeper in the fastest time – just 13 seconds.

Ray and his efficient team from local enterprise, Any Events Catering, supplied a delicious hog roast lunch, sponsored by Mi-space.

All in all, it was a fantastic afternoon with an important purpose. We were delighted to be joined by Oakfield’s project sponsor, Nationwide Building Society; and together we look forward to continuing our support for the Lighthouse Club in the future.
