£21,500 raised

An incredible £21,500 was raised for EdUKaid at the 2022 Golf Day and Great Vending Get Together Ball.  This was the 11th charity ball and auction in support of EdUKaid hosted by Tim and Sarah Varney from Doozy and our first time at the beautiful Ardencote Manor Hotel and Spa.   

Golf in the sunshine

The day began with 28 golfers enjoying breakfast sponsored by Monster Energy and teeing off in beautiful sunshine.  Kepak, Doozy.lifeMonster, iPro Hydrate provided refreshments and lunch was sponsored by Tower Leasing.

Dinner and auction

Doozy’s CEO and Chair of EdUKaid Tim Varney opened the evening with a moving presentation by showing images of EdUKaid’s work in Tanzania.  Tim was able to show guests the incredible impact the Vending Industry has achieved through their generosity - previously contributing over £180,000 to the charity. 

After a lavish 3 course dinner, Tim Varney conducted a lively auction including a holiday at Beyaz Villas in Turkey provided by Sarah and Tim Varney and an Executive Box at Old Trafford donated by Kepak. Tim was presented with a cheque for £1,000 from the recent NIVO golf day.  

I continue to be overwhelmed by the generosity of my colleagues in the vending industry

Tim told us ‘I continue to be overwhelmed by the generosity of my colleagues in the vending industry – year after year they show incredible support for EdUKaid’s work transforming the lives of some of the world’s most disadvantaged children.  We have seen for ourselves the incredible impact that EdUKaid achieve and the difference that the vending industry are achieving by supporting events like this’.  The fun filled evening concluded with live band The Deloreons and some fabulous moves on the dance floor.
