29 years ago, I joined Protective Packaging Ltd and over the years it has grown with me. As operations manager I am responsible for ensuring that everything runs smoothly every day but my responsibilities do not end there.
Protective Packaging provide their employees with a themed quarterly company lunch, a time for us all to get together, scoff some good food, play some games and get rewarded for our efforts but who arranges these company lunches?
The Social Committee, there are 5 of us currently and I am one of them! This quarter’s company lunch was held on the 4th July so what more an appropriate theme than Independence Day? Myself and the committee members pulled together to arrange for the company lunch to be held outside, weather permitted!
A BBQ was sizzling away with Beef Burgers and Hot Dogs on the day, as well as a Popcorn Machine popping, Candy Floss being spun and of course the famous Cosco Pizzas going down a treat…I told you we scoff some good food!
We then celebrated our hard work with a game of stand up Bingo, lucky dip balloons where there were prizes be won and finally, our Managing Director presents the Employee of the Month and Employee of the Year with their certificates!
Everybody thoroughly enjoyed the company lunch and the weather stayed dry! All of the proceeds raised from the day will be donated to our charity of the year, Wood Street Mission.
