Our charity of the year: the Pituitary Foundation!

 

We’re really pleased to announce our charity of the year for 2019, the Pituitary Foundation!

 

 

The CAP2 team have done plenty of small fundraising events in the past, so as you can imagine, we’re excited to take our passion to the next level with a year-long goal!

 

Why the Pituitary Foundation?

 

The Pituitary Foundation aims to help and support people across the UK that have been affected by pituitary conditions; including patients, their relatives, friends, and carers.

With just ten members of staff, they’re a small charity that relies upon volunteers and public donations to get the job done.

There are a wide variety of disorders, conditions and diseases related to the Pituitary Gland; that tiny organ we all have just below our brain!

Just the size of a pea, it’s sometimes called the ‘master gland’, circulating hormones across the body and stimulating other glands to produce theirs. As a result, if anything causes it to work incorrectly, the knock-on effects can be devastating (as you can probably imagine).

Our goal for 2019

 

In 2019 we’re hoping to raise £2000 for the foundation, along with our sister company and fellow office-sharers TRP!

The office is buzzing with ideas of what we can do to raise money, spread the word about the great work of the charity and help them have a super successful 2019; their 25th anniversary year!

We’ll be getting up to all sorts of events and challenges, so keep an eye on this blog (or follow us on social media) if you want to keep track of our progress.

…we may have cheated a little as well, with our pre-New Year arts & crafts session:

Andreea showed off her creative flair by running a bauble-making session to kick off our fundraising activities!

 

How you can get involved!

 

Our MD, Daniel Haywood, has started off 2019 in style. He’s agreed to shave his hair into a Mohican if we reach just £250 by the end of the month!

We’re already at £230, so if you’d like to contribute, check out our donation link below (remember, all to a good cause! And we’ll share the pictures of course…).

Happy New Year!

We hope you had a great 2018, with lots of fun memories and experiences to look back on.

Having packed away the baubles and cleared up the tinsel (which was everywhere by the way) we’re all looking forward to the year ahead!

 

To all our clients, partners and friends:

Thank you for making 2018 a great year.

Together we’ve helped hundreds of thousands of people learn and progress, in over 40 different sports and activities!

We couldn’t have done it without your support.

Our year at CAP2!

 

We have a few favourite moments to share, after another year of CAP2 and CoursePro…

 

The CAP2 Swimathon.

Blog post (with video!)

Participating in the local Swimathon has now become a CAP2-tradition, and we couldn’t be more pleased! With two teams entered in 2018, we smashed our fundraising target of £300, raising £430 with your help!

We’ve upped the ante this year with three teams; so stay tuned for more from us as the date comes closer…

Our second CoursePro summit!

Customer summits are another new tradition that we’re pleased to have established! There’s no replacement for meeting our customers face-to-face, and we really appreciate the time and effort people put into meeting with us (special shout-out to the GymPlus team for coming over from Ireland!).

Our Community

We always try to think of our community, with everything that we do. Whether in the local area, in the sports industry more generally, or with our customers & partners, our values are always close to us.

One of our favourites this year was partnering with GoFest, the organisation aiming to promote family sport! With weekend-long events in Manchester and Guildford, kids and families could come and try over thirty different sports.

We also ran another MacMillan Coffee Morning with a quiz-twist, again hitting our donation target, and having a great time along the way. You can also check out our summer team-building day, which we tried to do in very CAP2-style!
