2021 has been another very challenging year, but one that our staff have tackled with hard work, flexibility and determination. As another Christmas Party season passed us by, we wanted to make sure we squeezed in a few celebrations and treats for staff to say thank you.
Instead of a Christmas Party, a selection of Christmas Hampers were on offer, focusing primarily on supporting local businesses. Staff could choose from Arundel Sussex Gold from Arundel Brewery; cheese from the High Weald Dairy; sparkling Brut from Tinwood Estate; an organic veg box and a handmade hamper filled with all sorts of goodies…all gifted in a Tristram Plants tote bag.
As well as hampers, we celebrated Christmas Jumper Day raising money for Save the Children and Perennial; had a cake sale, with several people showcasing some exceptional baking skills; and cooked or bought bacon and egg baps for staff on the last day. From the jumpers and cakes we raised over £200 for our charities, so a massive thank you to everyone who donated and participated.
Here’s to a restful Christmas, and maybe even a good old fashioned Christmas Party in 2022!
Thank you and Merry Christmas everyone…x
