Celebrations Spread Christmas Cheer

The Holiday season is in full swing with Christmas celebrations taking place over the last few weeks.


Employees felt the Christmas Cheer at the Enterprises Christmas Party.

CEO Drew Beswick said that everybody embraced the Christmas spirit.

“We like to celebrate the holiday season but also see these events as an opportunity to bring everyone together to reflect on the year and celebrate their own achievements. It is such a great time of year to enjoy a fantastic afternoon of food and fun”.

The celebrations began with a party for disability services participants, with 180 Oak and Possability clients, support, family and friends attending the Tasmanian Hockey Centre for a scrumptious two course Christmas roast lunch. The rain did not dampen the party spirit as guests enjoyed posing with a festive photo wall and crowd favourite rock act The Goodfellas had everyone out of their seats dancing!

For the first time, all employees from our enterprises came together to celebrate the season at one giant party. The newly constructed shed at Oakdale Industries was converted into party central with Coast to Coast Golden Roast putting together a delicious two course Christmas lunch.

The best dressed award went to Alex from Mailhouse Tasmania for her reindeer costume and several lucky door prizes were awarded.

Highlights included an impromptu game of cricket in the sunshine and use of a karaoke machine featuring several renditions of classic Australian anthems before dancing the afternoon away. Senior staff members also got into the festive spirit by manning the buffet and serving lunch to guests at both events.

We would like to thank everybody involved for making these events possible, from the staff and committees who give their time, effort and ideas, to the many vendors and entertainers who provide us with services, the support we receive for these events is fantastic and we are looking forward to another fun filled festive season in 2018.
