An Amazing Fun Day
What a fantastic first What's Right Fun Day we had today with more than 300 people celebrating What's Right and our Good Causes, Jessie May Trust, CCS Adoption, St Peters Hospice, Children Hospice South West, Penny Brohn, Young Enterprise and the Wild Place Project to name just a few. So many people to thank like Bradley Stoke radio who broadcast live and kept the event flowing, Pirate Pete from Piratewalks who brought tales of the Bristol Pirates in his own special way, the What's right Trusted Partners that we able to give their time to assist and to the master of event organising Julie Evans who did us proud and who not only took care of the logistics to ensure a smooth running day but also managed to arrange for the sun to shine!
We would also like to thank Chris and his team from Leap of Faith for getting everyone involved in the fun games and of course Kate and her team at the Wild Place Project who kindly gave us free acces to use their amazing attraction at Cribbs Causeway which is a must for everyone to explore. Get ready for a rerun next year with a twist

What's Right in Dragon Boat Race
Community networking group What’s Right were among the teams to take part in the annual Dragon Boat Festival on Sunday June 7th.
The group, which includes businesses from various industries, raises money for good causes by donating funds from work generated as a result of membership. Its crew of 17 came first, second and third in its three races and has already raised over £400.
What’s Right founding member John Tiley said: “It was a brilliant day and very well organised. We are looking forward to next year.”
The group, which has raised over £20,000 for good causes, also presented cheques of £500 each to CCS Adoption and the Southmead project on the day.
The annual Dragon Boat Festival is organised by the Rotary Club of Bristol Breakfast and held each June on Bristol Docks. It is the Club's major fundraising activity and this year’s main charity was the Stroke Association.
Teams compete and raise sponsorship to raise money for charity. This year was the 14th this event and to date over half a million has been raised.
Many of the teams are put together at places of work so that the day becomes a great team-building exercise.

Great Summer Drinks Evening!
What’s Right supported good causes explained how our demonstration of ethical corporate social responsibility has made a difference.
Sarah Hennessey CCS Adoption, Angela Emms Rainbow Centre for Children, Mike Pierce MBE Southmead Project, Reverend Dan Tyndall St Mary Redcliffe, Julian Withers Jessie May Trust, Edd Smith St Peters Hospice and Stephen Melanophy of Business in the Community all shared their feelings about our support in practical terms and everyone present were left suitably impressed with this well organised event at the magnificent Bristol and Bath Science Park.
Whilst this was a team effort, special thanks must go to our trusted partners Judith Heale of Gregg Latchams and Rebecca Jenkins of Results with Marketing for managing the process. Mark Evans our Co Founding Partner said a few special words of appreciation to our Founder John Tiley and it is rumoured that John welled up with tears.

Running for Fun
John Tiley from ITQ and Trevor Arnott of Choice Security runs the Bristol 10K. John was supporting St Peter's Hospice and Trevor was supporting the Southmead Project, two of our Good Causes and what great causes they are!
Run for the Future
Mark Evans from Kbase Connect runs the 5K as the character 'Whoarya' for the great cause "Run for the Future" that support research into Prostate Cancer.
It is a sad fact that more than 40,000 UK men are diagnosed every year with prostate cancer and over 10,000 die.
But prostate cancer research receives only 25% of the funding spent on research into breast cancer in women. The PSA blood test is a the diagnostic test available to screen for prostate cancer but, sadly, only 8% of men currently receive this potentially life-saving test so it's particularly important that men around the age of 40 to 45, with a family history of prostate cancer,make that fact known to their GP and request a PSA test.
To help raise vital funds for research into prostate cancer and post-operative care, in 2004, the Rotary Club of Bristol offered the Bristol Urological Institute a fund-raising event. Working with the staff of the BUI, the first Run for the Future, a 5 km "family based" walk, jog or run, took place on Bristol Downs in September 2006.
