The countdown to Christmas has well and truly commenced and we are feeling very festive here at Sprechen!
All week our Director Steve has been out and about with the Winchester Santa Sleigh, provided for the residents of the city centre and surrounds by Winchester Round Table and the many, many kind volunteers who don their elf outfits and brace the cold (and often, wet!) weather to spread a bit of Christmas joy to the children!
At the same time as spreading some festive cheer, they have been raising funds for numerous charities and community projects. Some nights, if you really looked closely, Santa might have looked incredibly familiar...
There has been a brilliant turnout and a fantastic amount of money raised which got us to thinking how grateful we are to be able to support such worthwhile initiatives in our local community and the city we call home.
Sprechen have had a great year, and we are truly thankful to all of our clients and the people we've worked with throughout 2017. Without you, we wouldn't be able to support our community in the way that we do.
We feel privileged that we have been able to work so closely with Winchester Round Table again this year - Not only was our Director Steve Cross Bonfire Chairman for Winchester Bonfire and Fireworks 2017 but he has also been an integral part of Santa's sleigh visits around Winchester.
Through these events, Winchester Round Table raise an incredible amount of money for local community projects, charities and people in need.
Without our loyal client base we wouldn't be in a position to be able to volunteer our time to these projects, and so we are immensely grateful to each and every one of you.
So as Santa rounds off his Winchester trips, our thoughts turn to gift wrapping, turkey preparation and spending time with family, friends and loved ones.
All of us here at Sprechen would like to wish you a very Happy Christmas, a restful and rejuventating break, and a successful and exciting New Year.
