Vision of 1979
10th September 2019
Barnsley based trade fabricator Euroglaze chose Village People’s YMCA – at No 1 when the business was founded 40 years ago – as the theme to celebrate and raise £500 with an anniversary charity Open Day.
MD Martin Nettleton led the tribute performance as the Native American, backed by Glen Park, Wayne Elkin, John Rigby, Wes Aspinwall and Rob Speight, before all took part in a sponsored van pull, while everyone chipped in fairground games, old fashioned stocks, a hog roast and a tombola all laid on for staff, customers and suppliers, including Rehau, to help raise money for Euroglaze’s chosen anniversary charity Retina UK.
‘Tunnel vision’ glasses were supplied to all those having a go at the strong man and ball in the bucket games so that they could experience the reality of living with the inherited sight loss which Retina UK funds research into as well as providing support for those affected.
In total, around £500 was raised at the Open Day, with Jay-Jaye Park, the 9-year old son of Operations Director Glen and Customer Service Administrator Nicky contributing an impressive £150 with his very own sponsored van pull. More anniversary events are planned over the coming months including an online competition for customers and a virtual cycle ride from Lands End to John o’Groats to help Euroglaze reach a £10K charity target.
