Over the last few weeks the Arena Team have been busy hosting festive events at each centre and celebrating Christmas with their clients!
The festivities were certainly in full swing at Lancaster Court yesterday, with plenty of activities to help spread some Christmas cheer! The morning saw clients take part in a ‘Santa Hunt’ to win sweet treats for their office: Santa-shaped tokens were hidden around the building and each company were given clues to help them find their token, which could be exchanged for chocolates.
Later in the afternoon clients gathered in reception to enjoy some festive drinks, mince pies and stollen. There was also a Christmas jumper competition in collaboration with Digitoolbox (residents at the centre), with all proceeds for competition entry donated to Ronald McDonald House Charity. There were some truly impressive entries – including a troupe of Santas in matching costumes!
The winners of the competition were Danielle from MediaBase Direct and Becki from Compleat Conference Company – both ladies received a gift bag of Christmas goodies…and bragging rights!
Lancaster Court was not the only centre to embrace the Christmas spirit:
At Poole clients enjoyed mince pies and mulled wine whilst helping a good cause, donating presents to Amelia’s Rainbow Trust to be distributed to local children suffering with terminal, life-limiting and serious chronic illnesses. Meanwhile, our Fareham team collaborated with a number of their clients to offer a Christmas Gift Fair giving residents the opportunity to buy some ‘not on the high street’ presents! Southampton clients enjoyed some festive fare whilst donating food items to the local food bank, whilst in Basingstoke, Ferndown and Farnborough our centre teams also entertained their clients with some festive drinks and nibbles to spread some Christmas cheer!
A very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all at Arena!
