This year, Buttercups is celebrating its 30th birthday. Over the years, the passion, commitment, dedication and care shown by our learners and their colleagues is something that has continued to inspire us and is the basis of everything we build. I wanted to celebrate our birthday with a ceremony to recognise our learners and their mentors. The award categories represented some of the key areas that we have been focusing on over the last few years and a big anniversary is the perfect time to recognise our learners and celebrate together.
The awards were an important opportunity to support two charities that are especially important to us, the Cystic Fibrosis Trust and Pharmacist Support. We’re delighted to announce that the Excellence Awards raised £2,050 which will be shared between the two. A huge thank you to everyone who donated prizes, took part in our silent auction and participated in an epic game of heads and tails!
Congratulations also to the winners of the raffle, who went home with the following prizes donated by Buttercups:
1st Prize - Half a case of Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label
2nd Prize - Hotel Chocolat - six month subscription
3rd Prize - Voucher for dinner for two to the value of £100 at a restaurant of your choice
4th Prize - £70 Experience Days voucher
5th Prize - £50 Amazon voucher
6th Prize - Hotel Chocolat Large Chocolate Hamper
And our silent auctions winners, who won brilliant prizes with the proceeds going to CF Trust and Pharmacist Support:
Lot 1 - Halborns Intelligent Employment Hub one year subscription
Lot 2 - Daniel Koek - Live Acoustic Performance
