A chance to celebrate with our affiliated charity, O2e
The Source gang, minus drivers Dave, Mark and Tim, traveled to London on Saturday as guests of the O2e annual charity gala dinner.
300 people rocked up at The Brewery, a stunning venue in The City, to celebrate everyone’s efforts in fundraising and raising awareness of O2e and it’s chosen charities.
The glamorous Source team, a blend of all generations as ever, represented the company brilliantly and were at the heart of the dance floor for most of the night. A champagne reception was followed by a stunning 3 course meal and of course, the wine flowed easily.
The evening was focused by two special guest speakers who each had humbling stories that reminded everyone where all the hard-earned money is going and what a massive impact people’s support can have on others in need of a helping hand.
Double Paralympic Gold medalist, David Weir CBE, a friend of the charity, was on the mike with O2e main man, Slatts, elaborating on the experiences of winning gold in the Olympic Stadium during 2012. David is a success story of Get Kids Going, one of O2e’s chosen charities over the past several years.
Another special guest who also had the full attention of the audience was Mandy, a mum of a 13 year old lad called Jake who is supported by those lovely people at Demelza. Demelza is a children’s hospice supporting families across Kent, South East London and East Sussex and have provided invaluable respite care for Mandy and her family throughout the years.
As ever, there were untold acts of generosity when the live auction kicked off. Some stunning items raised a five-figure sum but sadly, Team Source won’t be living from a 6 bedroom chateaux in Provence for a week, despite our efforts!
2014 – Euro Cycle
Big Kev took to the stage to announce the eagerly awaited route for his annual European ride. Next September Kev will host over 130 cyclists and a support crew of 20+ from London to the Normandy beaches. The D-Day landings are a truly special place and no doubt it will be a very popular event.
All abilities are welcome, novice or experienced so if you are keen to get out of your comfort zones and get involved then do so. They are an absolute highlight for all who get involved.
2014 – O2e & Source Supplies
Off the back of a successful kids event earlier this year called Try-a-Tri, Ollie and Source are setting up a similar event in the Source area and will invite all the schools to take part. More details will follow in the new year.
The Source Team in action!
