ChipsAway has rewarded Stafford franchise owner Carl Hardiman and his team to a paintballing day after they raised more than £4,000 for Help for Heroes, the franchise’s adopted charity of the year.
Hardiman raised the funds by holding a charity car wash weekend, which generated a fantastic £1,450, and organising a summer ball, which raised over £2,700.
“I decided to get involved and raise funds for Help for Heroes mainly because it is ChipsAway’s chosen charity, but I was also because the charity is so topical at the moment and I was in the forces many years ago,” Hardiman said. “The paintballing day was fantastic – it was really good fun. I did it with Wayne Edge, who works in the workshop and my son, Daniel, who does the valeting. We had a brilliant time – it was nice to do something different and a good way to recognise the fundraising for Help for Heroes. Thanks to ChipsAway for the opportunity, I’m proud to be the franchise owner that has raised the most money so far!”
The paintballing day was a reward for the ChipsAway franchise owner who raised the most money for Help for Heroes in the first half of 2010. The ultimate prize for the franchise owner, who raises the most money by the end of the year, is a dinner date with TV presenter and motoring journalist, Vicki Butler-Henderson.
