This year T J Evers Ltd celebrates 100 years of trading and to mark this achievement we hosted a summer party in the beautiful grounds of Braxted Park Estate.
250 guests attended including clients, consultants, subcontractors and suppliers who enjoyed garden games such as rifle and pistol shooting, archery, falconry and Segway racing before a gourmet BBQ accompanied by music and string quartet.
Alan Evers, the great grandson of the Founder Thomas James Evers gave a Short speech about the company’s heritage and future plans saying “100 years is something that we are all extremely proud of as there are not many construction firms that have been around for that long”. He stressed the need to continue working in a non-confrontational way summing up by saying “the company is in great shape, busier than ever and keen to remain working in the East Anglia for the next 100 years”.
Evers held a raffle to raise money for the company’s two chosen charities; the Ark Centre and Big Picture Charity Films. Prizes were kindly donated by some of the companies attending.
The Ark Centre supports young children with autism and/or social communication difficulties and is the only multidisciplinary early intervention centre for children with autism in Essex and the surrounding area. http://www.thearkcentre.org/
Big Picture Charity Films are a UK based registered charity which works exclusively to help existing charities and organisations raise awareness of their causes. The Big Picture Charity receives no external funding and produces films relying solely on donations. http://www.bigpicturecharityfilms.org/
The total money raised from the Raffle alone was £2000 which has been split evenly between the two worthy charities,
We would like to thank all of our guests joining us in our celebrations for making it a truly memorable day for us. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of our staff past and present, for their massive contribution over the years!
