Chris Pennell is an English rugby union player who currently plays as a full back or wing for Worcester Warriors in the Aviva Premiership. He is a former captain and lives in Worcester with his wife and young family. Each season, a handful of players are honoured with a Testimonial year in recognition of their long and outstanding service to the game and their Club. Chris Pennell’s 2018/19 Testimonial year was celebrated through a programme of fundraising events to raise money for 3 charities – Diabetes UK, Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer and Acorn’s Children’s Hospice.
What we did
Modus have worked with Worcester Warriors for many years and are leading supporters of The Wooden Spoon which is a rugby-based charity that raises funds for disabled children’s projects in the UK and Ireland. We already knew Chris so it was a pleasure to support him with marketing material, support and advice throughout his Testimonial year.
The year officially started in July 2018 but by that time Modus had already built a website specifically for Chris’s Testimonial year. This was great because it was the focal point for anybody who wanted to see what it was all about and to keep up to date with the events and fundraising initiatives.
How it worked
From the creation of the website, we were able to support major fundraising events with adverts, pull-ups, raffle tickets, artwork, table plans, place settings. In addition, we also produced letterheads, comp slips, brochures and wall calendars that were sold to raise further funds for Chris’s chosen charities.
A Testimonial year is a very significant year for a professional sportsperson. Chris very much enjoyed working with Modus and we worked closely together to make sure that everything went smoothly. It was a pleasure to work with Chris in his fundraising endeavours, and we wish him well in his continuing successful career.
