But since we’re all about making complicated things simple, we decided to take a more direct approach. In our case it was as simple as taking some of the office and getting down in the mud, together.
Number 8 – garden gate!
On a rainy day in early May, the entire Agency Inc office took the tube down to the Yalding Day Centre in Rotherhithe, for a day of planting, weeding, quizzing and getting way too into bingo.
It was a great day for lots of reasons – not only did we get to help Age UK Lewisham and Southwark provide a much-needed social hub for older people in Southwark, we also got to take some important out-of-office time.
41 – time for fun
Speaking of what’s important, here are some of the day’s highlights
- Nikki (Strategy Partner) met and hit it off with Betty (Retired) – now they’re text buddies
- Our Account Manager and allotment expert Fiona teaching us all what was – and wasn’t – a weed.
- An absolute dedication to bingo from everyone involved – from the bingo ladies heckling our designer Tom’s number calling to introducing Lauren (a proud Kiwi) to British bingo slang
- A truly wild trip to the garden centre – where a white van mysteriously appeared to transport us back.
What a day. It’s definitely something we’ll be doing again. And thanks to Hands On London, it’s never been simpler to be part of something good.
