The Lime Venue Portfolio (LVP), Meeting Needs and Happy Days ‘Christmas with Sparkle’ campaign kicked off this weekend with the successful completion of the three peak challenge. Led by Richard Kadri-Langford, Head of Marketing at LVP, three-day, three-mountain challenge raised just under £1000 for the charities, with more expected throughout the September promotion.
The team scaled Britain’s tallest mountains, Ben Nevis (27th), Scafell Pike (28th) and Snowden (29th) on each day. The money raised so far was through the sponsorship of the team, however LVP have committed to donating £10 for every enquiry taken in September that quotes the #sparkle*.
“The guys put in a monumental effort for an amazing Meetings Needs charity,” commented Jennifer Jenkins, Chair of Meeting Needs. “This is a brilliant initiative pulled together by event professionals that really care. We couldn’t be more grateful – and genuinely astounded – by their efforts. A real thank you from everyone at Meeting Needs.”
The challenge is part of a wider campaign developed between Lime Venue Portfolio, Meeting Needs (MN) and Happy Days, one of MN’s partner charities, who create unique experiences for disabled or disadvantaged children. The campaign, ‘Christmas with Sparkle’, is running throughout September to raise up to £2500 for Happy Days.
“We’ve had the most amazing support from the industry already for the campaign. The Three Peak Meeting Challenge has raised just short of £1000, all of which will go to a very fitting charity,” commented Richard Kadri-Langford. “We’re really proud of how far we’ve come already, and equally proud to support Happy Days and Meetings Needs. The rest of the campaign kicks off today and is well on course to reach its £2500 target.”
