Company Updates

  • Today is #FootballShirtFriday. So to help raise money for the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK and our own local charities, the EBA and RMCH, we wore our football shirts with pride.

  • The first day of our Wellbeing Week was a great success with lots of people getting involved. We ran an engaging ‘managing stress’ workshop to try and give our people some great tools to come out on top in stressful situations, as well as a lunchtime walk and run to help get people out enjoying the sunshine that seemed to have been in hiding for the last six months! Walking and running isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, that’s why we ran dance, kickboxing and personal trainer sessions for those who liked to mix it up, and to top off a great first day, our team over in Gibraltar competed in a mini office Olympics on the terrace. We’re looking forward to seeing what the rest of the week will bring! #WellbeingWeek2018
