Our staff have embraced the Christmas spirit by generously raising £575 for Save the Children via a series of fundraising events throughout December.
On the 11th December staff from Hewitsons’ four offices in Cambridge, London, Milton Keynes and Northampton, congregated online to take part in a festive fundraising bonanza.
To kick off the fundraising Hewitsons partners Susanne Hinde and Rachel Sims began by hosting a firmwide Would I Lie to You quiz which, like the popular panel show, tasked staff with discovering which of a series of eccentric staff stories were true.
Hosted on Zoom this quiz drew in over 90 staff who had to collectively vote on which story was true or false. The staff audience were master sleuths as they managed to correctly guess every story, including a true story of how a Hewitsons partner played Our Graham in a west-end production of Blind Date.
On the same day, HR consultant Sue Gibson and marketing manager Sarah Head hosted the annual Christmas jumper contest. This event saw several staff members dress in their best, and most colourful, holiday jumpers in the hope of being crowned this year’s Christmas champion, of which agriculture partner Gareth Williams was voted the winner.
The festive series then ended with the big reveal of a special video rendition of the 12 days of Christmas by Hewitsons staff.
Managing partner, Colin Jones, said “We continue to be impressed with the way that people across our firm are responding to the challenges of life during the COVID-19 pandemic and this particular piece of work has been particularly pleasing due to the funds which have been raised for Save the Children. It has been a difficult time for many this year and we hope that our donation will help with the work of this well-regarded charity.”
Save the Children is a UK based charity that helps vulnerable children in over 120 countries stay safe, healthy, and educated.
