A Festive Round-Up With IOLLA

Amidst the whirlwind of the festive period at IOLLA, we thought we'd reflect on the heartwarming moments that filled our month. From festive celebrations to supporting important causes, we've been on a mission to make this holiday season special for everyone across our business. 

Christmas Jumper Day
House of Naf

The Christmas spirit kicked off early at IOLLA when we joined NAF! for their first ever Christmas event hosted at their amazing venue, House of Naf! Our stall at their festive fayre immersed us in the festive buzz, offering a fantastic opportunity to connect with local businesses and embrace the perfectly festive atmosphere the team had created so well.

Christmas Jumper Day

We then completely embraced the festive spirit with our company-wide Christmas Jumper Day! Our head office was buzzing with laughter and an array of the very best Christmas jumpers - think plenty of knitwear, sparkles and even some antlers too! The afternoon was spent enjoying our favourite Christmas treats and exchanging our Secret Santa swaps. More than just a celebration, our day was in aid of an ever important cause. Proudly raising funds for Save the Children, we were aligning with our belief in using our business as a force for good.

Social Bite
Social Bite - Tree of Kindness event

Our merry moments this month then extended to an invitation to an event hosted by local initiative Social Bite. We had the privilege of attending their Tree of Kindness event at their city centre cafe in Glasgow. The nights event featured live music from Fatherson's Ross Leighton and offered a glimpse into Social Bite's impactful Tree of Kindness. The initiative resonated with us deeply. Social Bite is a charity and social business committed to providing homes, jobs, food and support to empower people to transform their lives. At IOLLA, we truly believe in championing causes that drive lasting change and supporting Social Bite's mission to end homelessness once again aligned perfectly with our goal of using our values as a brand. We are so proud to support Social Bite and have been a small part of their huge movement to end homelessness. Keep an eye out for Social Bite's Tree of Kindness in Glasgow and Edinburgh and join us in supporting this wonderful cause by leaving a gift under the tree.

As we gear up for the rest of the Christmas season, we're excited about the opportunities to spread cheer, make a difference and continue using our platform for positive impact.
