Isle of Man-based eGaming firm Newfield raised money for charity Craig’s Heartstrong Foundation with a ‘Pie in the Face Auction’ during its annual staff fun day.
Victims were selected by a staff vote, and then colleagues bid for the opportunity to splat a pie in their faces. The auction raised £820 for the Foundation, which is Newfield’s Charity of the Year for 2017.
The auction was part of Super Sunday, a day of activities hosted by the company at Douglas Rugby Club. Staff enjoyed food, drink, games and activities during the event, including a boat race, water balloon challenge, assault course and sports’ day races.
To celebrate Newfield’s fifth anniversary staff and guests at Super Sunday were presented with a mini bottle of bubbly.
Newfield Administrator and social team member Natalie Wilson-Spratt said: ‘At Newfield we pride ourselves on having a friendly team which enjoys spending time together, both in the office and outside. We regularly get involved in team events, and Super Sunday was great fun.
‘Everyone had a great time joining in all the activities, and the Pie in the Face Auction was a real highlight. Well done to all the “volunteers” and those who bid, they all helped raise a terrific sum for Craig’s Heartstrong Foundation.
‘That money will be added to cash raised at other Newfield events throughout the year to assist the Foundation continue its vital work funding heart screening of young people in the Isle of Man and supporting the provision of life-saving defibrillators Island-wide.’
Natalie added: ‘I’d like to thank the rest of the social team for organising a brilliant event, and we can’t wait for the next one. I’d also like to thank Douglas Rugby Club as well as Ballakelly Farm for arranging the food and drink.’
