The festive season is fast approaching, but it’s business as usual here at Softwire which means we’ve been up to plenty of fun shenanigans. We thought it was time for a bit of an update on our recent morale activities.
There really has been something for everyone in the last couple of months. From our regular pampering slots with massages and manicures through to the slightly more unorthodox bubble football trip we had down to Camden.
It’s not all fun and games though, sometimes we do fun and games for a good cause and we did just that at our charity RockStock evening where a number of bands played and sang classic hits in aid of Broken Rainbow and SCI Schisto Control. The performances went down a storm and we raised over £1843 for our charities, which was a great achievement.
We’ve also enjoyed some exciting culinary treats in the form of sausage salad and obatzda (apparently it’s a Bavarian cheese delicacy) at our somewhat tongue-twistingly named Sofctoberfest, where we also enjoyed a range of German beers and learnt a lot about German music. One could have been forgiven for believing you had stumbled through a portal to Munich. It isn’t just German beverages we’ve been exploring recently either. Our whisky club had yet another successful evening of whisky tasting, but this time we paired it with artisanal chocolate from around the world. A delicious and slightly intoxicating evening!
We celebrated Back to The Future day in style with an impeccably planned and timed screening of all three films in the brand new projector room. You can’t beat the classics shown in HD with surround sound and pizza! If all of that excitement wasn’t enough for you we also celebrated Halloween in style, with lots of great activities like haunted gingerbread house decorating and apple bobbing, and the bar was certainly raised by this year’s fancy dressers.
So all in all we’ve been having a great time and we still have plenty to look forward to before the year is out, like our charity pub quiz our Romanian festival and all of the usual festive activities. It’s not a bad time to be working at Softwire.
