Another Summer comes and the annual Lunch on the Green event took place at Clapham & Collinge Solicitors on Wednesday 12th July 2017. The event was sponsored by Break, an amazing local charity of ours, who provide a range of residential and community based services for vulnerable young people and families across East Anglia.
Lunch on the green is such a fab event from start to finish, from being greeted with a cupcake by the helpful and happy faces of Clapham & Collinge, to walking on the red carpet with a glass of wine in your hand.
It was great to see some familiar faces such as Lorna from Thrive, Chris from GGS, Michael and Aaron from All Is Flux and of course the lovely Jill from The Space. We also enjoyed talking to The Norfolk & Norwich Association for The Blind (NNAB), hearing about the innovative events they are arranging to raise funds for local blind children and adults.
There was lots and lots going on including some pretend money for a game of roulette, a Shakespeare quiz by the lovely Sheringham Theatre, spinning the wheel on The Feed’s stand for some Kettle Chips and discounts and lots of opportunities to win hampers and champagne.
It was really cool to see a lot of Tech being used at the event. We took along with us Jacek Lipinski, a sixth form student with us this week for his work experience. Jacek is studying coding and has an interest in tech and software, so it was great to see him getting involved on Sim-fly’s flying experience and having a close up look at Barclays 3D Printer. When also taking part in Face 2 Face Finance’s counting money in the piggy jar, rather than writing our names down, we were refreshed to see they had their ipads at the ready, and an email sent to us to confirm our guess! It was also really cool to see Customised UK with their super big smart TV.
Overall we enjoyed a catch up with some great people, making some meaningful new connections, seeing a cool lamborghini, lots of entertainment, delicious food and sunshine, a fantastic day organised by Clapham & Collinge.
