WEC Group Staff Family Fun Day

WEC Group held a Staff Family Fun Day at AFC Darwen Anchor Ground on 1st September from 1pm until 4pm.

All proceeds from the day went to our Charity of the Year, Oliver's Neuroblastoma Appeal.

We are very grateful to everyone who came to support the event with their family and friends and can proudly announce that we have been able to raise a further £673.50 for Oliver's Appeal.

This appeal is a local fundraising effort supporting four-year-old Oliver from Blackburn who has been diagnosed with stage 4 high risk Neuroblastoma, an aggressive form of childhood cancer. Following from Oliver’s diagnosis, his little sister Eva has also since been diagnosed with the same condition. The charity needs to raise £200,000 to give Oliver access to potentially lifesaving treatment which is not available on the NHS and will increase his chances of survival.

The event included:

  • Face painting
  • Sweet cart
  • Bouncy castle
  • Magician
  • Luxury raffle
  • Staff 5-a-side Football Tournament
  • Congratulations to our Staff 5-a-side Football Tournament winners, our CCTV Team. Well done also to our Runners up from Engineering.

    We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the local business that kindly donated prizes for our raffle: Astley Bank, Akash, Amalfi, Blackburn Ice Arena, Blackburn Rovers FC, Cin Cin, Dark Horse Hair, Darwen Golf Club, Delicarlo, Dolly's Tea Room, Essence, Happy Daze, Smithhills Farm, Vandas Market Garden, W J Bland and Wood-Sage Outdoor Education.

    Thank you to everyone who helped to make the day a great success including AFC Darwen for our venue, our magician Resh G, Belinda John our face painter and to Happily Ever After, Kevin Kearney, DJ Ivan and Eventech for their services.
