Christmas at Abacus 2022
06 January 2023 by Justin Rush
As we slowly start to take our Christmas decorations down, Team Abacus reflect on a very memorable and festive December.
Client Event at Café Parisien
We started the festivities with our valued clients at Café Parisien with cocktails and canapés to celebrate a successful 2022.
Abacus Christmas Party 2022
Abacus Christmas party 2022 was one to remember! The day started with a tasty breakfast prepared by our very own Stuart John, which was an absolute treat! After attending all the important calls with our candidates, celebrations began by recognising top performers of the year, followed by Secret Santa. Stakes were set high for Santa after the Directors presented everyone with generous gifts! The team enjoyed a lovely Christmas lunch at Stix & Stones and drinks at Rita’s.
Christmas Charity Challenge
The Christmas spirit was at a peak during our Christmas Charity Challenge. Team Abacus set out in 4 groups to support charities that are close to their hearts. Local charities are vital to communities and with the rising cost of living, they are facing varied challenges. To help them continue their important work throughout Christmas and into the New Year, the 4 teams reached out to their chosen charities and donated Christmas hampers, toys, warm clothes, cash donations and more!
With the support of our Directors, we were able to donate £2300 total to the following charities;
– Age NI
– Cash for Kids
– Simon Community Northern Ireland
– Women’s Aid
– Christian Against Poverty- Through Greenisland Presbyterian Church
– Light and Life Church Glengormley
– Marie Curie
– National Deaf Children’s Society
– Yew tree butchers
– Emmanuel Church Lurgan
– Leukaemia & Lymphoma NI
In December, we celebrated our lovely Operational Manager Emma Coulter’s 1 year anniversary with Abacus! We are very grateful and continuously impressed with Emma as she organises fun activities for the team and ensures smooth running of all operations!
We are thrilled to welcome Mary Kurian, our new Marketing Executive, to join our growing Abacus Team! Mary graduated with a Masters in Marketing, with a background in Psychology. She brings fresh marketing and business development knowledge after working in the legal and banking sectors. We are excited to have Mary on board – Welcome to the team Mary!
