A Very Datesand Christmas
As usual, the Datesand team had plenty going on during the festive period. Amidst the big move, we still managed to fit in a fantastic Christmas Party, a sponsored Christmas Jumper Day for Hits Radio Cash for Kids and our usual ‘Christmas buffet’.
On 11th December, we all turned up in our best Christmas Jumpers to do our best in raising funds for Hits Radio Manchester and their charity partner Cash for Kids. At Christmas, the charity aims to distribute gifts to children and young people in Manchester who would otherwise miss out on a ‘normal’ Christmas. We were able to donate a big box of gifts to the charity as well as £65 that went towards even more gifts! With help from business and residents, they were able to provide gifts for 41,836 children in Greater Manchester!
2019 was a great year for fundraising at Datesand. We raised over £465 for 5 different charities throughout the year and there’s plenty more to come in 2020.
On 13th December the whole team got to celebrate another great year as they started off the weekend with an evening out in Manchester City Centre. We were treated to a delicious 3 course meal at The Anthologist in St Peter’s Square and there were plenty of drinks flowing as everyone could sit back and have some fun after a year of non-stop hard work. After the meal, we moved on to K2 Karaoke bar where everyone really let loose! It was a night full of loud singing and hysterics and overall brilliant happy vibes. And only one or two sore heads…
Before we all head home for Christmas, there’s usually a Christmas buffet laid out at the office for everyone to sit back and enjoy while we exchange Secret Santa Gifts and try our luck in a raffle. This year, after already pressing hard to get into our new premises, we ordered in plenty of pizza to go around and enjoyed a little pizza party, ending an absolutely brilliant year on a high!
