Switchplane’s 15th Birthday Party

Over the August bank holiday weekend, Switchplane celebrated its 15th birthday with a party at Gildredge Manor. It was fantastic to see so many of our clients, friends, and families there to mark this milestone with us.

It was fantastic to see so many of our clients, friends, and families there to mark this milestone with us.

Despite the typical British summer weather moving the party inside, guests had a great time playing with the funfair games from Rent Event and were amply sustained with a delicious barbecue cooked by Food Glorious Food. The candy floss from Sweet Dreams Candy Cart and the stunning rocket-themed cake by The Sovereign Cake Studio filled our need for sugar during the afternoon!

The children were thrilled with their Switchplane squirrel mascot gifts and enjoyed the soft play and games on offer. Both children and adults enjoyed dressing up in our photobooth!

Many thanks to all of our party guests for their generous donations to St Wilfrid’s Hospice throughout the day and for helping our fundraising efforts for our Charity of the Year by eating cakes, playing games, buying our cake book, and entering the raffle.

We’ll confirm our fundraising totals on our social media pages once the amounts have been added up, but we’re really pleased to have been able to raise £220 on the raffle alone!

Some of our lucky guests won raffle prizes, charitably donated by local companies:

  • A family day out at Eastbourne Miniature Steam Railway
  • An afternoon tea for two voucher at The Cavendish Hotel
  • A two-day family membership pass at David Lloyd Eastbourne
  • A month's leisure club membership at The Cooden Beach Hotel
  • £10 voucher for The Art House, for art experiences or food
  • 2 x complimentary starters for two from Prezzo
  • Free meal and side of chips for two people at the Dew Drop Inn
  • 250g Starbucks 'Pike Place Roast' coffee blend
  • Luxury haircut and Gold Spa treatment experience at The Grove Experience (value up to £95)
  • 'Cake Week' recipe book, signed by the Switchplane team
  • Two prosecco bundles from Switchplane
  • £50 Amazon voucher from Switchplane
  • Switchplane goody bag

A huge thank you goes to these companies for their kind donations, as well as to our suppliers for their help and hard work on the day.
