Enabling vital sports centre
In the spirit of London 2012, Business to Business (B2B) UK Accounts Administrator Patrica Ellis, ran a sweepstake on the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, raising £73 in aid of SportsAble, a sports disability charity that has helped train Paralympic athletes.
Partners in B2B paid £1 each to pick a country and at the end of the London 2012 Games, all the medals per country were tallied up. The winner, Category Manager Dominic Melliss, picked eight countries – which won 559 medals between them – and the charity received half of the winnings, with the remainder being divided between three Partners.
The third prize winner, Operational Support Manager Karan Bazazan Noghani, donated her winnings to SportsAble.
Earlier this month, Patricia presented the cheque to the centre – which has unique Waitrose connection. Seventeen-year-old Lucie Bouron, the daughter of Centre Manager, Jennie Bouron, belongs to SportAble and happens to work part-time on the check-outs at our Bracknell branch.
