The Glitz, The Glam, The Christmas Party!
Written by Positive Care Social Care Worker, Matthew Hughes
With success, comes celebrations – and what better way to meet the new staff on board and celebrate with your regulars than to partake in some festive fun. On December 2nd, the staff of Positive Care took to the ‘marble city’, Kilkenny in order to embrace the success they achieved as team members throughout 2016. Having reached the Pembroke Hotel in the early evening, the team underwent the transformation from rags to riches as they glammed up in the fantastic facilities partly subsidised by the wonderful Management of Positive Care.
With the meet and greets out of the way, the ambiance was electric with staff members mingling and reflecting on their experience with the ever growing company. Glasses were raised and laughter echoed throughout Statham’s Bar @The Pembroke Hotel! Those in need of a lift learned to dance by waiting for the bathroom, while it was apparent that others were no stranger to the dance floor as they started the ball rolling with Whitney Houston’s iconic ‘I Wanna Dance with Somebody’.
Being no strangers to fun and games, the partygoers endured numerous games of Giant Jenga whilst also portraying themselves in the limelight as they hogged the ‘InstaFabulous Selfie Frame’- and yes, the lighting was just on point!
Moving throughout the night, a huge success was the initiative to collect much needed funds for Crumlin Children’s Hospital. The team managed to raise a whopping €1,000 in a brilliant raffle with the top prize being a hotel weekend away. This donation serves to provide patients with life-changing treatment to improve the quality of life for them and their families. A sincere thank you to all those who donated and always remember, “Winning is not everything, but the effort to win is!”
Drawing the night to a close, the natural caring gestures of the team were demonstrated when their caring skills enabled them to finish one another’s sentences whilst serving as a crutch as they escorted one another to their room. The night was finished with a well-deserved ‘night cap’ followed by a chorus of Westlife lyrics, ‘Let me go hooome’.
Happy Christmas Everyone! Thanks for all your hard work this year and here’s to making 2017 an even bigger success.
We couldn’t do it without you.
