This year has been a tough one in the vaping world. The implementation of the TRPR meant there was a huge shift, a change that has rocked the vaping industry and meant we all had to adapt quickly.
But with the festive season fast approaching we have all tried to get into the Christmas spirit, decking the office out with our own TW tree adorned by a special Mr Wicked ‘angel’ created by our resident artist Mitch.
The xmas raffle begins
Then the announcement was made, the famous Christmas raffle was taking place. With very little detail given, we have spent the past few weeks guessing how they could possibly top last year. Well it turns out that our resident Santa (Fraser Cropper, MD) could.
A lot of credit has to go to the group of happy elves in our accounts team who spend a long time planning and organising to ensure we all have an outstanding afternoon and this year was no exception.
Entering the ‘grotto’ this year, we were greeted with delicious hot food, soft drinks and exquisite cupcakes; as well as a projected slide show, which was a nice new addition.
After everyone had filled their bellies and the live stream was up and running for our retail colleagues who couldn’t be there in person, the big event started.
Totally Wicked faces weren’t safe
It turns out some graphics designers had a giggle this year and decided to use our photos for the slideshow. The little scenes were hilarious and brought to life by faces of our colleagues.
The prizes this year were amazing. They ranged from luxury food hampers, Amazon Echos, an iPhone 8, Apple watch, MacBook Pro, 55inch 4K curve TV, Nintendo switch, Leeds festival tickets, Xbox ONE X’s, PS4’s, cash prizes up to £1000 and even an extra weeks holiday for next year.
But what really set this year aside were the travel prizes. There was a shopping trip to Europe, a shopping trip to New York, a weekend in Morecambe (With a £1000 spending money) and an F1 weekend away with the tickets included.
Dougie is seen here mid-air, after winning the F1 prize. It’s safe to say he was happy.
The top three prizes this year were out of this world holidays, all expenses paid. A family trip to Orlando Florida, a cruise and a 10 day luxury trip to the Maldives!
All of the prizes went to really deserving winners. Are we lucky to have this opportunity each year? Of course we are, but we know it. So I like to think that everyone gives just a little bit more through the year.
Merry Christmas from everyone at Totally Wicked. We look forward to 2018 and what the next year brings.
