It’s the time of year to be grateful and we’d like to thank all our clients for the chance to work with them this year. We really appreciate all of our partnerships and look forward to working together again in 2018 and beyond.

The festive season is also a time for giving. So, instead of sending our partners our season’s greetings on a printed card, we’re sending them an ecard (featuring the animated GIF above, which our team had fun creating) and donating the money we would have spent to Centrepoint, our business charity of choice. Centrepoint is a charity which provides accommodation and support to homeless people aged 16-25. We have been proud supporters of Centrepoint for the last three years and can’t think of a better use of our budget this holiday season.

This year alone our London team braved the autumn elements in the name of charity, taking part in Centrepoint’s annual Sleep Out event. We also held a silent auction at one of our events with all proceeds benefiting the charity. Overall, we raised almost £4,000 for Centrepoint in 2017, contributing towards giving homeless young people a future.

You can also help keep a homeless young person safe during the holidays by contributing to Centrepoint’s Christmas appeal.

We wish everyone at Centrepoint and all of our partners and their teams a very happy holiday and a prosperous New Year!
