The Travel Convention 2015
Izzie O'Riordan -
I think all delegates will agree, that The Travel Convention could be summed up in one word – whirlwind.
From the moment we touched down at Kalamata airport it was all go. This year we were hoping to raise £15,000 with our new appeal ‘Let’s Make a Noise for Charlie’.
Our first fundraising opportunity was at the gruelling show down - The Convention Football Match. Each year players come with their game faces on. But dreams are dashed and muscles are pulled. And this year would be no different.
Football match veterans White Hart Associates were back once again but this time had a new team of challengers; Team LifeLine.
As the players made their way on to the pitch, the tension was palpable and after a very serious pre-game huddle, it was time for kick off. White Hart Associates were determined to remain champions and therefore guardians of the ‘FA-BTA Cup’, but Team LifeLine were not going to be be walked over.
It was a fabulous game with White Hart winning 1-0. It was, then back to the hotel for a cold one, the champions’ trophy and Man of the Match to be awarded. Congratulations to Philip Byrne who was chosen as this year’s Man of the Match!
In order to reach our target for Charlie we needed to pull out all the stops. To this end, we organised a luxury raffle where entrants were in with a chance of winning a Cara Delevingne Mulberry bag, an Apple sports watch or a Tiffany Bangle. We also held an auction with some fantastic prizes kindly donated by Thomson and First Choice, Royal Caribbean International, British Airways and Resort Marketing International. Thank you to all who entered the raffle and to all who bid in the auction. On top of this we had a number of companies who made a loud donation, just for Charlie. These included Classic Collection, Olympic Holidays and The Travel Trade Consultancy.
We were overwhelmed by the support and generosity shown by our wonderful industry.
Together we raised a fantastic £16,350 for baby Charlie and his family.
In addition, 25 companies signed up to our £1 per employee appeal raising an additional £31,000. This will allow us to help other vulnerable people in our travel community who have nowhere else to turn.
So thank you. You really have made a difference.
