Around 1,700 employees based at Reading’s Winnersh Triangle escaped the workplace to spread the festive spirit together at a special Christmas fair.
A day of decorations, yuletide food, and gift stalls selling local wares at the business park collected hundreds of pounds for Age Concern and Guide Dogs – both of which have offices at Winnersh Triangle.
Organised annually by Winnersh Triangle, this year’s Christmas fair was the biggest yet as the 50-plus companies at the thriving business park were invited to celebrate on the first floor of the prestigious 1020 building.
Workers enjoyed a Christmassy lunch of German-style bratwurst hot dogs and chicken goulash, as they successfully raised funds to be shared between the two good causes.
Beverly Harrison, Winnersh Triangle marketing manager, said: “I’d like to congratulate everyone for showing such fine support for these two very deserving charities and business park neighbours.
“Our annual Christmas celebration is the highlight of our busy events calendar at the park and for some of our businesses here, it’s what kicks off the festive season. It was really heartwarming to see Winnersh Triangle’s occupiers get together like this.
“This year’s event was the largest we’ve hosted and shows how Winnersh Triangle is growing and developing. As well as great facilities, travel connections and top quality accommodation, there’s a real community of businesses here too.”
She added: “Many of our Christmas stall holders are local businesses and regulars at the event and we were delighted to welcome them back to the park for this festive occasion.”
