Christmas Fun for EIC tenants

EIC tenants were treated to the annual Christmas party on Thursday 6th December.

It was a record breaking year for attendees, with over two hundred guests enjoying a buffet and range of games with prizes for the winners.

There was a ‘Pin the Nose on Rudolf’ competition, a Christmas jumper competition and also a virtual reality game kindly provided by VR Simulation.

There was also the raffle, which this year raised an incredible £304 which will be donated to local charities Stay, Newlife Telford and Age UK Telford.

A big thank you to all those that attended and to the catering team who provided an excellent buffet. Merry Christmas!
