December is always a month full of celebrations for everyone at EEC Home Improvements and this year hasn’t let us down so far. Every year EEC sponsors the local charity event Fisticuffs and Cufflinks, our sister company Fireguard Developments also joined in on the action this year with our new development European House as the headline sponsor.
This year was bigger and better than ever before with not one but two of the EEC’s team members fighting for victory in the ring. Our boxing superstar Installations director Ewan Maclean returned to the ring for the third time. We also had a newcomer solar PV installer Barry Graham whose first fight lead him straight to victory!
We had two tables packed with the EEC team and even more were completed by companies EEC work alongside, they came especially to support our two competitors. On behalf of them both we want to use this opportunity to thank you all so much for the support that was offered not only for them but also to help in raising money for our charities.
As always the event was at Southport’s theatre and convention centre, which was bursting at the seams with the event being a complete sell out with the whole room packed with crowds cheering on the boxers. Every year the fighting duels exceed the years before with the fighters putting in more and more hours of training to prepare themselves.
Not only do the fights get better each year but the spectators also excel each year. The passion from each and everyone of the audience, cheering on their chosen warrior was incredible and definitely encouraged the fighters to push their performance to a whole new level. Fisticuff and Cufflinks also had not one but three special VIP guests in attendance Georgia Harrison from Love Island, Sid Owen from Eastenders and Gatsby from TOWIE. Sid has been friends with EEC’s CEO for years and is now a regular attendee at the EEC events.
The event raised £1,000, which we will be splitting between two amazing charities Southport’s Queenscourt Hospice and Liverpool’s neonatal special care unit. We have continually supported Queenscourt Hospice over the years raising over £7,500 so far. The hospice has cared for a family member of nearly every person in Southport at some point, which is why we are so passionate to continue to help them fund their amazing care.
We want to thank you all so much for attending the event and hope to see you all next year but for now let us wish you all a Merry Christmas and a fabulous 2018!
