With Christmas just around the corner, the Arena team have been spreading some seasonal cheer amongst residents at every centre by hosting a series of festive events!
The celebrations started at Lancaster Court, with Silent Pool Gin visiting the centre to offer residents the chance to sample some of their finest gins! Residents were also able to make progress with their Christmas shopping at the event with plenty of gift sets and merchandise available to purchase. The event was hugely popular amongst our clients at Lancaster Court, and Silent Pool hosted a further two tasting events at our Basingstoke and Farnborough centres – which were also very well received!
In addition to their gin tasting event, the team at Farnborough encouraged their clients to don their favourite Christmas jumpers on two separate days for more festive fun at the centre! Clients snapped photos in the charity photobooth to raise money for local charity and Arena client The Lisa May Foundation and also took part in a Christmas competition organised by our residents Wordery to win a bumper bundle of books!
Meanwhile, the teams at our Poole and Southampton centres chose to champion local independent retailers by holding their own Christmas Fayres. With flowers and plants, fashion and jewellery items, confectionary, cards and beauty products on offer, clients at both centres were able to find gifts for all of the loved ones on their Christmas lists without leaving the office!
All centres also chose to observe the annual Save the Children ‘Christmas Jumper Day’, which helped everyone get into the festive spirit whilst raising money for a wonderful cause.
As the countdown to Christmas nears its completion, all that remains is for us to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all at Arena!
