It's that time of year again; the days are shorter and the nights are colder. But there is always a silver lining, or in this case, a red and green shiny lining. It’s Christmas and the time for Christmas parties!

This year Drewnion were given the chance to plan the Drew Christmas party.

Stephen reminded us of something we at Drew have always been a big fan of: random acts of kindness. So we went back to the drawing board and started to brainstorm how we could make this a part of our Christmas day. This Christmas, Drew have decided to do something different, something exciting, and finally, something to give back to the community. We believe that Christmas should be about making sure everyone is having a good time.

An idea we initially had was a sort of Christmas bingo where we try to tick off fun tasks, such as taking pictures with Santa, finding the largest Christmas tree etc. However the more we thought, from an act of kindness point of view we decided rather than having a “bingo” aimed at us, what if we used it to give back.

Rather than a picture of Santa, how about we give a rough sleeper a coffee and have a chat with them. How about we help people, and really get into the true spirit of Christmas.

Sorted, we are going to give rather than take this Christmas.

But what about our clients, our friends, and our family. We want YOU to all be part of this and to help us give something to the community this Christmas.

So we would like to introduce ourselves this year as the Drew Christmas elves. We aim to give back to those around us and we need your help. We want you to decide what we do. We want YOU to instruct US to do something to give back to the community.

Behind the scenes our developers, Joe & Nadeem have been building the Drew Christmas Elves website, check out the sneak peak...
