Convergys Halloween Fancy Dress Comp!

Convergys staff took part in a spooky fancy dress competition on Halloween!

Staff went all out and made a huge effort with costumes ranging from more traditional costumes like witches and skeletons and more unusual choices like Mexican Day of the Dead face painting, ‘Hell Boy’ and Zombies! Overall winner on the day was Lee McCutcheon who dressed as Teenage Ninja Turtle bad guy, Krang.

Convergys Communications Manager, Andrea Valentine said ‘We had a great day celebrating Halloween, as well as the Fancy dress competition we had prizes for the best pumpkin decoration and individual departments competed to decorate their work areas as spooky as possible! We all loved how unique and fun Lee’s costume was and were confident he deserved 1st Prize, but he did have some stiff competition!’

Movember Shave Down

Quorum staff treated to free Shave Downs ahead of Movember
Staff at Quorum Business Park are raising funds for men’s health this October for The Movember Foundation, which challenges men to bring the moustache back during November.

On Friday 31 October, the Q9 reception area wastransformed into a pop up barbershop, courtesy of Gosforth based Wilson Barbershop Co, who provided free ‘express’ wet shaves for 12 Movember participants across the park to de-fuzz ahead of the challenge.

Appointments were booked in 20 minute slots with drop in sessions in between. A number of Movember goodies and literature about Men’s Health was handed out in the waiting area.

Once Movember is fully underway, Quorum’s ‘Mo Quo’ Team will keep in touch with participants and chart their progress through to a Movember closing party at the end of the month where prizes will be awarded for the best, and worst, efforts.

Founder and owner of Wilson Barbershop Co, Robyn Wilson, said: “Being a barbershop with a male-only clientele, we’re constantly surrounded by beardy blokes, so we’re really excited about Movember this year; it’s all about ‘the mo’!

“As well as fundraising at the Quorum shave event – the shaves are free but we’ll be accepting donations – we’re also running 10k at the MoRunning event at Exhibition Park on November 9th. We’re hoping to raise over £500 for the Movember cause, and we’re sure we can smash this with the help of our amazing clients!”
