We all braved our commutes in to the office this morning, wearing our best (and worst!) Christmas knits to join in with National Christmas Jumper day and raise some money for STEM4. A lot of people in the office made a great effort, with around 25 people all donning a festive jumper, dress, tie and even some Christmas socks for the cause! Overall, we managed to raise £46.80 for the charity, a good effort for our final fundraiser with STEM4.
The annual Merton Chamber of Commerce Christmas lunch took place yesterday in San Lorenzo, for members of the chamber and local professionals in Wimbledon to get together and celebrate in festive style. Ian Mitchell and Ben Lee were present from WSM, and sat down for a festive meal amongst friends from Morrisons solicitors, GemFS, and Love Wimbledon.
For the month of November, sixteen of WSM’s manliest men set out to change the face of men’s health through growing a moustache. Movember is a charity and global men’s health movement which puts a fun twist on a serious issue. By growing facial hair for the whole month of November, we can not only raise money but awareness of the health issues that men face; specifically prostate cancer, testicular cancer and men’s mental health issues.
Last Wednesday, I attended an ICAEW “Speed Meet” networking event at Kingston Business School. The premise of the event is to invite along local employers and accounting professionals to undertake 3 minute speed interviews with final year accounting and finance students.
