Just when we thought Christmas was over, one of our major FMCG customers have already been launching their plans for Christmas 2016, to their internal teams. Despite only being at the end of February, we joined them at their event this week at the Park Inn by Radisson, where they were already beginning to prepare themselves for Christmas, their busiest period of the year.
Along with a brief appearance over Skype from Santa, the team were gearing themselves up to make this year the greatest Christmas ever! We’re very excited to watch them put their plans into action.

Ronald McDonald House Charities is an independent charity that provides free ‘home away from home’ accommodation at Children’s hospitals across the UK, enabling families of seriously ill children to remain close by and maintain a degree of normal family life, whilst treatment is ongoing.
The Ronald McDonald House at Oxford’s John Radcliffe Children’s Hospital was the eleventh House to open in the UK, and the first UK House to be opened within the hospital building itself.
