Christmas at the GW Hotel

Posted in News

Christmas may have been a few weeks ago now but we would like to say a massive thank you to Gavin and all the staff at GW Hotel who made Christmas 2019 extra special for our clients. Headway Swindon is close to Hotel manager Gavin’s heart so he decided to host a Christmas party for all of our clients, staff and volunteers which was spread over 2 days. The GW staff had decorated and laid the tables with crackers, hats etc and provided an excellent service throughout. For the first of the parties ex Swindon Town Footballer, Phil King kindly gave up his time to lead us all through some fun festive games. On the second day, support worker Charlotte stepped up to the microphone to entertain. Clients were able to enjoy a beautifully cooked Christmas dinner and pudding and they all received a decorated box with chocolates and mince pies to take home.
All the clients were extremely grateful (they are still talking about what a lovely time they had) and cant thank Gavin and his team enough.

Please read what Debbie R had to say about her time at the Christmas party on the Tuesday:

Tim and Gavin were partners. Tim had a stroke, then Headway got involved, but Tim had now passed away, and Gavin decided to do something good for Headway.
He then teamed up with Phil King and decided to do a
Christmas meal for Headway.

The GW Hotel Christmas Lunch was on the Tuesday 10th December 2019 and Thursday 12th December 2019. When I went I thought WOW! What a place! It was beautiful, nice presentation. I had a coffee and we had a cookie, but I didn’t because I had slimming world.

Jane (CEO, Headway) who told all of us that Paul Pratt had died, I was shocked and stunned, but rest in peace, Paul. Phil King who hosts GW Hotel. We had a game of Christmas quiz, bingo, Christmas movie picture quiz and singing along with xmas songs.

I had a roast dinner and fruit salad, it was most appetiser and brilliant. To take home and gift box with contains mince pies, heroes chocolates and Ferrero Rocher.

Thank you to the staff, client and everyone that made the day special.
