Our event this year was themed around producing a HOP advert or a depiction of a HOP memory in connection with Mr Jon Orrell, HOP Founder and previous Managing Director who has recently stepped down from the role.
Although there was some apprehension at first, everyone was soon invested in the competition and some hilarious short films were produced during the course of the afternoon. Thanks must go to The Team Building Company for supplying the equipment and their staff who provided help and guidance during the course of the day.
We then headed to Horatio’s Bar on Brighton Pier for the evening celebrations and award giving ceremony. Congratulations to ‘Team Champs’ who picked up 1st prize for their short film. The team was led by our most recent HOP employee and Degree Apprentice.
During the course of the evening, we undertook a raffle in aid of StrongMen and raised over £250. Some fabulous prizes were on offer and thanks must go to Brighton Pier, Grand Brighton Hotel and Ridgeview Winery for their prize donations.
A fantastic evening was had by all. We have some fantastic pictures courtesy of Fresh Booths. A real treat for staff was Jon Orrell joining the Soul Messengers for a few musical numbers and what a show it was!
We await next year’s surprise!
