As the sun sets on another remarkable year, we can't help but reflect on the incredible journey that 2023 has been for our business and workforce. This year, we didn't just meet milestones; we surpassed them, leaving a trail of compassion, generosity, and heartwarming celebrations in our wake.
A Year of Giving Back
One of the highlights of 2023 was our commitment to making a positive impact in our community. We're thrilled to announce that we donated over £6500 worth of stock between the Douglas Macmillan and Alice Charity . But that's not all – we extended our support to Shelter with a generous donation of £150. Our dedication to addressing homelessness didn't stop there; our very own Ricci participated in the Homelessness Big Sleep Out, contributing a significant £1000 towards this vital cause.
And then there's Gracie Tudor, a beacon of inspiration. Our hearts swelled with pride as we fundraised to help her battle with cancer, aiming to provide her with treatment abroad. To support her cause, we donated a Ring doorbell worth £102, which was used as a raffle prize. It's moments like these that remind us of the profound impact we can have when we come together for a common purpose.
The spirit of giving continues at Fenn's. As we approach the festive season, we're gearing up for Christmas hamper donations, Christmas Jumper Day, and a toy appeal. Additionally, we're hosting a Christmas raffle with generous contributions from our suppliers. The joy of giving will undoubtedly shine brightly throughout the holiday season. All donations for the festive period are to be announced in early 2024.
Celebrating Milestones and Life's Joys
Beyond our philanthropic endeavours, 2023 has been a year of joyous celebrations within the Fenn's family. We welcomed two beautiful babies into our fold – congratulations to Dee Clarke and Chris Coveney on the arrival of your little ones! Mark Williams celebrated not only his 42nd year with Fenn's but also the joy of becoming a grandparent. The bonds of our Fenn's family grew even stronger as Jade Harper and Ricci Gretton marked an impressive decade with the company.
But the celebration doesn't end there – Steve Wiles reached an extraordinary 30-year milestone with Fenn's, a testament to dedication and loyalty. Sue Colclough is set to join the 30-year club in 2024, and we can't wait to celebrate this remarkable achievement. And let's not forget the special birthdays – we cheered for Will Heaney's 40th and look forward to raising a toast to Neil Dale's 40th at the end of December.
A Year to Remember, A Legacy to Uphold
As we bid farewell to 2023, we carry the memories of impactful giving, joyous celebrations, and a commitment to making a difference. At Fenn's, we're not just a company; we're a community united by shared values and a passion for leaving the world a better place. Here's to a spectacular year and the promise of an even brighter future in 2024!
Vis unita fortior.
