Central London

Company – Global Brands Group

Staff from Global Brands brought some early festive cheer to a North London charity that supports isolated older people.

Dressed in Santa costumes, staff took a few hours away from the office to spend time with some of the people who go along to the centre and gave the place a festive makeover.

The team joined in with games of bingo and an art session before dressing the Christmas tree and decorating the reception area and main hall with fairly lights, garlands, glitter and tinsel.

“It’s been so refreshing.  Something completely different and nice to spend time with colleagues who work in different parts of the business” said Marie from the Sales Team. “I’ve really enjoyed helping the charity out and would love to take part in other days like this.”

Abi the Age UK centre manager was so happy with the team’s efforts as well as the donated 8ft Norwegian spruce Christmas tree. “It makes such a difference to our centre.  We really appreciate you all taking the time out to come here.  I can’t wait for our service users to see the place all lit up for Christmas.”

“It’s good to have fun, take time out and give a little back” said Allan Gibson, HR Manager who took part in the day.  “As a business, it’s important we show our corporate social responsibilities. Days like this are great for our staff to take part in.  We hope to offer further days for other teams to volunteer and do different activities with other London charities.”
