As I write this entry we are now into our 3rd week of our 3rd Placement. This brings me to TUI Ski, based in Kingston. With placements wrapped up in the Adventure Division (Sawadee) and the Education Division (Montreal), the Ski division represents a different challenge. The sheer scale of the business means that naturally there is a much bigger team and a different business model, yet similarities exist in that everyone is passionate about delivering an amazing product.
This week TUI Ski (which comprises of Crystal, Thomson and First Choice – and the branches off these companies also, such as Crystal Finest) are taking part in the 3rd annual Skiathon. This is an event to raise money for Disability Snowsport UK. I have naturally involved myself in this and each team of 6 is committing to raising £666 for skiing 666 runs of an indoor ski slope in 6 hours – towards our target goal of £35,000 for DSUK. Alongside us will be the British Disabled Ski team! The team here at Crystal have been busy fundraising and this has seen cake sales, ‘Skibay’ auctions, music quizzes and raffles as well as many more initiatives. For further information about this wonderful charity see http://www.disabilitysnowsport.org.uk/
The next post will include photos of the day (hopefully we can pull together some fancy dress!) If this is a charity that anyone would like to donate to (it’s very simple just go to the web page given below), or is interested in at all then please visit our teams page and see how much of a difference we can all make! www.justgiving.com/king-stunners
