As part of our Christmas celebrations, we have joined forces with Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice who are also based in Huddersfield. As well as providing an annual donation and bringing a donation bin into the office, we are also taking part in the Hospice’s ‘Magic of Christmas’ Campaign. The campaign raises money by conducting events such as quiz nights, jumper days & bake sales. Synergos have opted to run a ‘Lottie Shaw’ hamper sweepstake. The hamper which is full of delicious goodies is now situated in the ‘Sons of the North’ cafe, Brooke’s Mill Office Park, Armitage Bridge. Tickets are just £1 each.
We are delighted here at Synergos to be in partnership with the Audrey Spencer School of Dance and to be able to continue to offer their pupils, who wish to aim for a career in dance, the opportunity to win the Spencer Theatre School of Dance Scholarship Award. [Read more…]
