Brewfitt recently attended a golf day hosted by the Brewing, Food & Beverage Industry Suppliers Association, also known as the BFBi.
The BFBi is the only international trade association representing the entire value chain supplying the food and drink industry worldwide. As members of the association, Curtis Paxman, Managing Director of Brewfitt, attended the day on behalf of the business.
The golf day provided a great opportunity for Brewfitt to meet fellow members of the association and reinforce their partnership with the BFBi. The event was enjoyed by all despite the typical British weather supplying torrential conditions for the golfers!
Curtis Paxman said “It is important to be an active member of such an influential association, the BFBi has helped the industry meet many challenges over the years and events such as the golf day allow Brewfitt to meet other members whilst maintaining a strong relationship with the association itself”.

Some leading local businessmen put their contacts and influence to use to raise over £8000 for the Huddersfield Town Youth Academy and Yorkshire Air Ambulance, and also donated their free season ticket allocation to local charities, The Hollybank School and Forget-Me-Not Children’s Hospice.
Glenn and Curtis Paxman of Brewfitt and Paxman Coolers had committed to support the Pedal 4 Pounds bike ride from Yeovil to Huddersfield raising money for the Huddersfield Town Youth Academy and Yorkshire Air Ambulance. Glenn had the idea of using their company’s trailer to support the riders and Curtis decided to raise additional money for local charities by asking local companies to sponsor the vehicle and trailer. This was fully designed and supported by Fantastic Media along with the generous contribution of CV Graphics that provided all the livery and application for the support vehicle.
Sponsorship was also supported by Mark Ronan of Ronan Developments and a number of his business contacts, which resulted in over twenty local businesses joining forces to raise funds.

Curtis and Mark endured the 260 miles from Yeovil to Huddersfield in the saddle in some tough and enduring weather conditions, but thoroughly enjoyed the challenge supporting such a good cause.
Glenn offered full support to all the riders ensuring that those who were stranded, injured and had mechanical failure were all up and running or brought home safely. The Hollybank School and Forget-me-not Trust have the fundraising efforts of these businesses to thank for a number of Huddersfield Town season tickets which will provide severely disabled children and adults and terminally ill children the opportunity to watch the newly promoted Championship team during the 2012 / 13 season.
