So It’s official, the summer is nothing but a distant memory now and we’re getting ready to go into the Christmas season all guns blazing. Before the Christmas craziness kicks off I thought I’d take a moment to reflect on what has been nothing less than an AMAZING summer season for team Office Rocks.
Not only did we get to enjoy an absolutely fabulous weekend away in Ibiza (which you can read all about here), but our team also grew and we gained three new Rocks! This took our TOR family from 18 to 21. Crazy to think I only joined in May 2016 to a small team of 5. It wasn’t long before we out grew our little office and moved into the palace that is the TOR HQ serving us today.
End Of Summer Social
Anyways enough reminiscing, back to the summer! So a big stand out event for us has to have been our end of summer social. What an amazing night this was filled with beer, beats and banter what more could you want from a marketing party? We absolutely LOVED mingling with other local businesses and couldn’t have asked for a better crowd.
A personal highlight for me had to be the beer pong tournament. If there’s one thing The Office Rocks is good at, It’s throwing a party. The catering was absolutely to die for, the rest of the team were eating BBQ food for days. Life was good! We even had a live band providing the music. Oh we really do go all out. The only challenge we’re going to be faced with is trying to top it all next year.
Macmillan Coffee Morning
So on Friday 29th September we decided our office was going to take part in the world’s largest coffee morning. We all set to work on our masterpieces and then opened our doors to let people sample the goods when the clock struck 12. The Oreo cheesecake cookies are literally the best things I have EVER tasted in my life and that is one bold statement. Thanks to everybody’s amazing efforts and donations we managed to raise an impressive £130 to go towards an amazing cause, the Macmillan Cancer Trust.
Jeans For Genes
And we didn’t stop there! We had so much fun raising money for Macmillan we decided to get involved with the Jeans for Genes day too. The money we raised went towards helping children with life – altering genetic disorders. We quickly realised that nearly everybody in the office wears jeans on a daily basis anyway. We aren’t the formal office type you see. So to spice things up a bit we went for double or even TRIPPLE denim! Well everyone except for Pagey that is! ? We had such a laugh in the office we’re already looking for the next thing to get our teeth stuck into.
The Mussel Club Show Your Mussell Event
And finally we had an amazing time at the Mussel Club ‘show your mussel’ event in Sunderland’s stadium of light. Of course in true Office Rocks fashion we had to take our office mascot with us. Our unicorn hoopla went down an absolute treat with everyone! Call me bias but our stand was definitely where the party was that day. There were even presents to be won in the form of special Office Rocks chocolate! ? We loved mingling with other businesses and members of the public, spreading the word about our recently launched Office Rocks Academy. So much fun!
What’s next for the Office Rocks?
This year has been a HUGE year for The Office Rocks and we have no intention of slowing down now! We have lots of exciting things in the pipeline at the moment. And one HUGE thing which we can’t wait to share with you all. It’s all systems go at the minute. We’ll be back with another round up after Christmas but in the mean time you can keep up to date with our antics over on our Facebook Page.
