Earlier this week, we joined the rest of the nation in supporting the Save the Children charity, by wearing our most festive woollies! The whole office got involved, with guest appearances from Rudolph, an Elf and even a Penguin or two. With Ben’s pyjama bottoms amongst the sequins and pom pom’s, it’s fair to say Woodhouse had some laughable entries this year.
Charity is an important part of the Woodhouse culture, and knowing that our small yet festive fundraising can actually make the world of difference to children in desperate need, gives us a fuzzy feeling inside! If you’re yet to get involved, you still can at https://christmasjumperday.org/ or simply text MERRY to 70050 to donate £5.
We also had a surprise visit from Santa, perhaps rewarding us for our charitable behaviour, filling up our very own Woodhouse Grotto. Some of the ladies received some cosy Ugg slippers, whilst others were gifted with Gin – perfect presents for this time of year, I’m sure you’ll agree!
Matthew, our Marketing Director, also received a very special gift… a meat thermometer. You may ask why so special? Well, as the photos show, this was put to immediate use during the prep of our annual Christmas lunch where we enjoyed a pulled pork joint with all the trimmings. Oh yes! Crispy buns, halloumi cheese, slaw and triple cooked chips. We can only hope that this gift will encourage Matthew to prepare future lunches as delicious as this.
And it wouldn’t be Christmas Jumper day without some fun on the way. Our idea of fun this year… An 8 lane Scalextric track! A 10 lap race, where the fastest time would take home a golden trophy. Naomi and her purple car proved a strong contender throughout the afternoon, but it was ultimately Greg who mastered the tracks to become the winner.
We’d love to see how your Christmas Jumper day went down recently, you can share your highlights with us by using #woodhousewoollies otherwise, that’s a wrap from us! Have a merry Christmas and cracking new year.
