Aston Lark fundraising round-up

We are very grateful to insurance brokers Aston Lark, who dedicated the month of March to fundraising for the Charlie Watkins Foundation (CWF). Here’s a round-up of all of the fun activities they got involved in! We’d also like to extend our thanks to the Colchester branch who’ve been fundraising for CWF for the whole of 2022.

All employees from Aston Lark, an industry-leading independent broker with more than 55 offices across the UK and Ireland, took part in a wide variety of activities.

Take a look at what they got up to below:

  1. Tuck shops

    A few Aston Lark offices set up tuck shops – the Colchester office included breakfast crumpets in their offering while the Stourbridge office opted for a healthy buffet.

  2. An After Eight Challenge

    The Colchester office also hosted an After Eight Challenge with employees. If you’re not familiar with the challenge, you simply pop an After Eight mint on your forehead and try and slide it down your face. The first one to get it in their mouth wins!

  3. Bake sales

    Many of the Aston Lark offices held bake sales with lots of yummy treats on offer. The Colchester branch held a bake sale for Halloween 2022, raising £115 for CWF.

  4. Games events

    The Caterham office hosted a games week in their office with cakes while the Stourbridge office enjoyed a games afternoon. The Maidstone office and Renovation Plan in Burnham-on-Crouch also set up a Nintendo Switch to play with colleagues. The Surrey office similarly hosted a three-day Retro Mario Kart Play off!

  5. Dress-down days

    A few offices who held dress-down days have donated the proceeds to the cause.


Plus many, many more!

We’d like to say a big thank you to Aston Lark who raised a fantastic £1,600 for CWF throughout March.

We’ve so enjoyed seeing and sharing all the pictures from the Aston Lark fundraising activities and have loved the creativity and dedication of all the staff.

While every Aston Lark office supported CWF in March, their Colchester office is continuing to fundraise for CWF throughout 2022 – we are so thankful for this.
