Thanks for playing our Christmas Conga game!
Over 1600 players built their best conga lines to make it onto the LV= Broker leader board for the chance to win £500 for a charity of their choice. There were some incredibly high scores, as many of you fought to get the highest score and, of course, win a hamper full of tasty treats.
We’re happy to announce that the winner of the £500 charity donation is…
Gary Stockbridge, Insurance Executive, Abacus Insurance Services.
Here’s what Gary had to say:
“I’m very happy to be chosen, to be able to contribute to my charity of choice and knowing I might help change someone’s life or give someone a helping hand in life fills me with pride.
My best mate Dan recently passed away suddenly at the age of 37, and this is a charity he supported through his (and also my) love of football. To be able to donate such a large figure in his memory is the least I can do for the lifetime of memories he gave me. This one is for him!”
Gary has chosen to give the £500 charity donation to…
Football Beyond Borders
Football Beyond Borders was registered as a charity in 2009. They are an education charity which uses football as an engagement tool to support young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Lizzi Hollis, Head Of Fundraising at Football Beyond Borders said,
“We’re delighted that Gary has chosen to direct his donation towards FBB. Without our donors we couldn’t deliver programmes that allow us to engage with bright and inspiring young people who aren’t reaching their potential. Thanks, Gary!
As well as delivering our programmes at schools, we offer rewards and enrichment for our young people, including a yearly tour. This can be life changing, giving them an opportunity to spend some time away from home, often for the first time. Our tours cost £100 for each young person to attend and we want to make sure that everyone who reaches their targets is able to attend without the obstacle of cost. This donation can enable us to ensure tour places for 5 young people this summer.
The highest score
The highest score of 717,140 went to George Varney, Sales Consultant from Bedford Insurance who won the hamper full of tasty treats.
Upon receiving the prize, George said:
“I would like to say thank you for giving us all another highly addictive game to play over the last month. Many people feel that Christmas is all about friends, family, gifts and drink. But it’s not really about any of that, it’s all about creating massive conga line’s that get insanely fast while collecting giant floating jelly beans around your office Christmas party!
Clearly I was put on this planet to be not just an exceptional insurance broker, but also the greatest Christmas themed computer game player of the modern era.
Finally I would like to thank my colleagues at Bedford Insurance and my competitors who helped me to achieve my destiny of becoming your 3 time champion.”
