NSPCC + Ski = NSPCCSki
Here for a good time, not a long timE.
For the previous two years NSPCCSki has been a successful event, raising funds for the well known charity NSPCC. With hope from the organisers at Infinitum Group and Ten80 Events it will continue for many more years, fundraising through an exciting experience on the slopes. Next years event location will be Chamonix - save the date 24th-27th March 2019.
With approximately 1/3 of the trip cost donated towards the charity and 3 days of fun with a great bunch of people it makes it an exciting experience whilst donations going towards a very worthy cause.
Expect the obvious skiing, evenings of entertainment, lovely restaurants with local delicacies and a an all round memorable trip.
Everyone is welcome, any ability of skier (or snowboarder) and from any industry.
- Nick Bampton, Founder of NSPCCSki and Chairman of Infinitum Group’
MEET THE ORGANISERS
The directors of Infinitum Group have worked in Media for most of their careers.. having worked in the industry and become familiar with NSPCC it is a charity close to the hearts of the company and have supported them consistently. Organising the NSPCSki trip in recent years has added to their ongoing support of NSPCC.
Ten80 Events is a much loved, corporate events company that has been running for 12 years, specialising in exciting events in spectacular locations throughout the world. This proposition sets Ten80 apart from the majority of events companies, as does their meticulous attention to both detail and customer service, an ability to think on their feet and of course where they are based year round - the world famous Chamonix-Mont-Blanc.
Their unique personal touch means that to Ten80's clients and their guests, many of whom work in the Communication industries, they are just those ex-media boys Tim and Al who somehow escaped corporate life and "get to ski a lot"! This is not far from the truth and certainly how it all started once they left Starcom MediaVest in 2003 and relocated to Chamonix to "do a ski season". It wasn't long before they decided to create a life in Chamonix, and after a day's skiing, they sat down to plan what sort of business and lifestyle they wanted to build there - and not long after, Ten80 Events was born.
Having worked as media planners for creative and media agencies for over 20 years, they had gained an invaluable insight into how events should be run, simply having experienced a vast number of corporate trips as guests first hand. What better way to learn what clients and their delegates look for on an event?
And yes, despite having grown this humble and local ski company into a highly respected events agency that operates across the globe, they do still get to ski a lot.
"The NSPCCSki event is very close to my heart for many reasons.
By using the power of mountains and music we are able to raise funds for the incredible and life changing NSPCC.
We all know that everything begins with Childhood and what makes the NSPCCSki trip so unique is that not only does this trip raise a huge amount of money for those that need it but it also is such a fun trip for all that come on it.
It’s a chance to explore the mountains of Mont Blanc, listen to the incredible live music on the mountains and also have a bonding adventure with fellow fundraisers.
I am incredibly proud to photograph, host and film this fantastic event now approaching it’s 3rd year."
