Our Christmas 2018 Review

As 2018 draws to a close, we take a look back on what we have been getting up to this Christmas, from raising money for Save the Children on Christmas Jumper Day to having our very own customer competition for the best-dressed office, we really have been getting festive this year!

Christmas Jumper Day 2018

On Christmas Jumper Day 2018, RFM Group threw on our festive jumpers and oven gloves to bake and raise money for Save the Children.

As tradition every year, our team came in our craziest Christmas jumpers to get festive on Christmas Jumper Day 2018. To get in the festive spirit, our keen bakers brought in some Christmas themed goodies to sell so we could raise as much money as possible for Save the Children.

Save the Children are a fantastic worldwide charity who’s vision it is that every child thrives and goes on to change the world. They believe that every child should be able to make their mark on the world, and help build a better future. Together, they fight for children every day. Find out more about the amazing work Save the Children do.

Staff ‘Santa and his Sleigh’ baubles decoration

To get our staff involved with Christmas this year, we held our very first competition with our very own baubles decorating competition! Our staff had to follow the theme of ‘Santa and his Sleigh’ so it was their chance to get festively creative and shine for our competition! Full of weird and wonderful creations, our winner was Jackie Mark whose winning artwork you can find at the top of this page and on our Twitter page.

Martin House Christmas Tree Donation

As tradition every year and as part of our ongoing commitment to charity work, we gave their Martin House Children’s Hospice their own Christmas Tree. Located in Weatherby, Martin House do fantastic work in providing family led care for children with life shortening conditions. It’s a place where children, young people and their families can stay from time to time along their journey and find support, rest and practical help. Martin House were delighted with their tree and we look forward to working with them in 2019. Click here to find out more about the amazing work Martin House Children’s Hospice get up to.

Sending their pictures through our social media channels, our customers sent their ‘Santa’s Grotto’s’ to us to have the chance of winning £100 for their chosen charity. Our winner was Arcadia who you can find their winning festive office pictures on our Twitter Page.
