Making a Difference: Team Whitehall at The Big Purple Games 2023

On the bright morning of June 30th, the Whitehall team arrived at the Colchester Rugby Club, eager for a fun-filled day at ‘The Big Purple Games’. The event, created by the MS-UK, is a wonderful way to enjoy team-building activities while also raising critical funds for those battling multiple sclerosis.

Still filled with excitement from last year’s victory, our team was optimistic about this year’s games. We brought ten of our our people, all primed and ready to engage in friendly competition. Every team member was excited to compete, equipped with a high level of energy and a spirit of competitiveness!

A Day Filled with Team Spirit and Laughter

Though the atmosphere was competitive, there was plenty of laughter and good sportsmanship. Each team member played their part, bringing their A-game to the event! While we didn’t clinch the top spot this year, our team demonstrated strong spirit and resilience. Everyone involved gave it their all, and had a smile on their face throughout the competition.

The True Victory: Raising Funds for MS-UK

The Big Purple Games isn’t just about fun and games; it’s a platform to raise awareness and funds for multiple sclerosis. We at Whitehall are proud supporters of this cause. The true victory of the day was in our collective efforts against MS. Despite not winning, our contributions, along with our competitors, helped raise an impressive £6,000 for MS-UK!
