The battle of the The Resort Group teams came to an end last week as the Marketing and Accounts department closed the competition with a spooky Halloween Party. The night was a great success with everyone getting involved in the fancy dress competition, well done to Emily Hall for being the scariest one there and winning a bottle of Bollinger (this prize was donated by Old Street Marketing). Terri from Face Paint by Terri K helped to make everyone look truly terrifying with her face painting skills. The Beer Pong was a fantastic hit at the event and as expected, brought out everyone’s competitive side. A huge thank you goes to The Orange Tree for the cocktails they had specially created for the event, Hubble Bubble Toil & Trouble and Pumpkin Smash, where £1 from every cocktail was donated to the Foundation. The room looked amazing, thanks to the kindly donated balloons from Occasions by Us.
Even before the event had begun the raffle tickets were selling fast, which was no surprise given all the great prizes generously donated by several companies.
