We are always happy to help and support our local community and were delighted to enter a tree into the Aldridge Methodist Church Christmas Tree Festival. This was the first time we have entered, and we put in a lot of time and effort into the design and decoration of our tree. The theme was “face-to-face financial advice”. So, we sourced clear baubles and inserted photographs of each of our Advisers. We sourced toy money and made rosette Christmas decorations with chocolate coins as the centres. We then festooned the tree with baubles and chocolate.
We were amazed by the number of trees that were entered, well over 50 trees. The amount of work and imagination that had gone into them was incredible and the standard was very high. The trees were voted for by members of the public who purchased tokens for £1 and put the tokens into a jar attached to their favourite tree. We didn’t win this year, that accolade went to The Rock Choir and was well deserved because their tree was fantastic. We will be back next year though!
Thank you to Olivia and Lisa Arnold for your hard work. When they are not designing Christmas trees Olivia and Lisa are members of our support team helping our Financial Advisers who give financial advice in Sutton Coldfield and across the area.
