Forget the John Lewis advert and the Strictly final, the Mercer & Hole Christmas photo competition has dished up more heart-warming Christmas feels than mulled wine round the fire with Santa!
Picked from amongst the festive selection was Caroline Mockett’s mouth-watering photo of mince pies being dusted with icing sugar, which the judges felt was in the calibre of a professional photo or a Christmas advert and beautifully portrayed the festive spirit. Caroline from Mercer & Hole’s Rickmansworth office has won £100 for her office charity of the year – The Cure Parkinson’s Trust – a charity dedicated to funding research looking to slow, stop and reverse Parkinson’s disease. Her winning photo can be seen on the banner of the homepage to get you into the Christmas mood. The runner-up photo was taken by Emily Summers and featured some rather naughty Christmas Elves in Mercer & Hole brand colours munching on chocolate mousse. Emily won £50 for the St Albans charity of the year – Open Door – a charity dedicated to helping those at risk of homelessness in the local area.
We would like to thank our Charity Champions who encouraged the teams to send in their Christmas photos as along with raising money for our chosen charities, they have really put us in the Christmas spirit and taken our minds off the not so positive news. The competition has also shown a rather creative side to our firm. We loved the table decorations, festive dogs, a snowman through to Sarah Sparshott’s cute kitten photo which inspired many others to enter. Well done to everyone who took part!
Caroline’s winning photo has been displayed on the Mercer & Hole homepage banner during the festive break.
