Filming the Challenge 51 Beach Ball

As well as being guests at the recent Challenge 51 Beach Ball, we were also there to capture the night – working on a video to capture the highlights.

The Beach Ball was the final event of the Challenge 51 calendar of events – all undertaken to support three amazing cause and to honour Rich Garrett, who sadly passed away from cancer.

Challenge 51 grew from Rich’s wish for us to fundraise for the organisations that had so supported him and his family came up with the idea of raising £51,000 in 51 different ways, the total ultimately being split between his chosen charities, namely The Bobby Moore Fund, The Research and Education Fund at Bedford Hospital and the Sue Ryder St John’s Hospice at Moggerhanger.

The ball was not only a chance to dust off our glad rags. It was a chance to say hi to old friends, make new ones and to celebrate the life of Rich.

If that wasn’t enough reason to be there, the fact that it was also about fundraising made it even more special. In total the event itself raised £26k on the night, meaning a staggering £100k in total for those three causes.

Bravo team Garrett, thanks for allowing us to be a small part of the amazing legacy.
