Cazfest Charity Car Wash

Charity Car Wash

On Tuesday 20th January, Cazfest hosted it's first fundraising event of 2015! The charity car wash raised a whopping £711.50 and hundreds of grubby cars went away looking sparkly clean!

A huge thanks to Aki and his team at Pro Valet who worked tirelessly throughout the day washing the cars of Bishops Stortford and beyond - and of course those who visited on the day!

We look forward to seeing you all at our next fundraising event.

Great Hadham Golf & Country Club

Great Hadham Golf & Country Club

Great Hadham Golf & Country Club who have selected Cazfest as their charity of the year held their first fund raising event for the charity on December 16th 2014.

An evening of music and entertainment had as it’s centrepiece a wonderful selection of 14 hampers which were raffled throughout the evening. Also Rosie Patchell, a lady member baked and iced a Christmas cake and organised a guess the weight competition.

A grand total of £1,180 was raised during the evening.

This and other monies raised during 2015 will be presented to Cazfest at next years club AGM.

Big thanks from Cazfest to Martin Gill the Club Captain and Barbara Cheney the Lady Captain for their support of Cazfest!

Team Invigorate!

Dragon's Apprentice

The 2nd Dragon's Apprentice challenge has begun - and Cazfest is one of the nominated charities!

A record number of teams of students from schools across East Herts have taken up the Dragons’ Apprentice Challenge organised by the Charity Volunteer Service (CVS) for Broxbourne and East Herts.

Between now and the end of January 2015, 16 teams of 16 and 17 year olds will attempt to turn £100 into £1000 or more for their nominated charities with the help of local business ‘Dragons’. The project ends in March 2015 with a presentation and awards event at Hertford Theatre.

With support and guidance from their business mentors and charities, the school teams are tasked to generate as much income as possible through business based activities, gaining valuable practical experience of planning, time management, teamwork, budgeting, communications, sales and marketing. We are delighted that Cazfest has been selected as one of the charities to benefit from this project. The school nominated to work on behalf of Cazfest is Herts & Essex High School of Bishop’s Stortford.

Team Invigorate

The team has chosen as their name “Invigorate” and comprises Jasmine Hang, Tayla Coomb, Megan Baldwin and Liv Sacre.

Unfortunately other members of the team were not at the kick off meeting so are not in the picture.

We hope to update this as soon as possible.

“The Dragon’s Apprentice Challenge in Broxbourne and East Herts continues to go from strength to strength and is unique in bringing together schools, charities and local businesses,” said Ian Richardson, Chief Officer of the CVS. “We are proud that in just 2 years we are likely to have the largest number of participants in the County for our Challenge and we are looking to at least double the £10,000 raised for local community groups that we achieved in our first year. Just as important is that the students quickly gain confidence and skills to help equip them for the next stage of their lives and we hope they begin to identify special areas of interest that can be career defining.”

We wish our team every success and are confident they will win the competition!

Regular updates on their activities and progress will be provided.

Charity Dinner

Charity Dinner

At a charity dinner held in London on Friday September 26th 2014, Cazfest was one of two nominated charities to benefit from funds raised during the course of the evening.

A total of over £1500 was raised through donations, a raffle and an auction. The funds were to be split equally between Cazfest and Combat Stress, a military charity helping to support UK veterans with psychological injuries rebuild their lives.

Alastair Johnstone who attended commented,

“To have the work undertaken by Cazfest recognised alongside a military charity supporting UK Veterans was both an honour and very humbling. It was a terrific evening and we were extremely grateful to have the opportunity to explain our work to a new audience.”
