It’s already 2012 and we’re all left wondering where 2011 went. It seemed to pass really quickly so we’ve decided to put together our most memorable bits.
In January and February we were hit by one of the worst winters imaginable, pipes everywhere were freezing, roads closed, public transport was cancelled. Winter 2011 was dubbed The Big Freeze by the media.
In March some of our staff braved the icy waters of the River Tay to raise money for Chest, Heart and Stroke Scotland and made it back in one piece.
We all had a lovely Easter in April and even had an Easter egg hunt in the office! Once May arrived we finally saw some good weather up in Scotland where we’re based, even if it was the only good weather we had all year!
June was a great month, we attended Lettings Agency of the Year Awards where one of our Partners, Romans, won Overall Winner of the Lettings Agency of the Year and our MD, Chris Gauld presented awards to a few other letting agencies with Dame Kelly Holmes!
We also had a wacky fancy dress day and bake sale to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis which was great fun!
July didn’t bring us very nice weather but August saw the beginning of our Monthly Meter Reads Lottery and a band night to raise some more money for Cystic Fibrosis.
In September we had a charity race night to raise a final amount of money for Cystic Fibrosis. This also goes towards the tandem skydive our staff will do this year for the charity.
In October we decided to have a party at the end of the month for Halloween but were far too lazy to dress up so just went as ourselves…
November saw us raising some money for Children in Need. We had a tasty bake sale and our Karen from the Resolutions Team donned a bright yellow jacket and was launched skywards in a cherry picker!
We gave away an iPad 2 to one lucky customer in our December competition and of course it wouldn’t be December without….you guessed it, snow!
All in all we had a great 2011 here at Spark Energy and hope you all did too. We can’t believe it’s February 2012 already. We’re looking forward to all kinds of things in the next few months but most importantly, the launch of our new website in April. Look out for more details coming very soon!
