This November, staff at the One Broker Group have raised over £350 for Children in Need by taking part in a trio of activities. From a Plank Challenge, to Painting with Pennies, topped off with a Bake Sale, the month has seen the One Broker Group engage in a flurry of activities to showcase its charity spirit.
Across all 5 offices, in Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire, One Broker Group staff have been challenged to 'Plank for Pudsey', holding the classic exercise pose, the Plank, for as long as possible. For those with an extra loud jangle emanating from their pockets and purses, pictures of Pudsey the Bear were coloured in with pennies by staff. The fortnight of activities was concluded with a Bake Sale.
Jo Harris, Scheme Manager of WeLoveLettings, a trading style of NWBIB in Cambridge, commented "Only for Children in Need would I hold a plank for 5 minutes straight!". Group Compliance Manager, Vivien Leeds, based in the One Broker Group’s Norwich office, KTIB, added "It’s been great fun taking part in activities, especially tasting all the delicious cakes and getting creative painting with pennies for Pudsey".

An office building with a cinema, spa and restaurant. Sounds too good to be true, right? Gibbs Denley Insurance Services’ client, Paragon Land & Estates Ltd, have thought of everything in their development of new office space, Blenheim House. Located in Cambridge Innovation Park, the building will welcome businesses from across the region to enjoy the innovative environment.
Attending the companies’ launch event yesterday to celebrate Paragon’s creation, Gibbs Denley Insurance Services (GDIS) were invited to see for themselves the new complex which offers a creative, high-tech environment for tenants. Spread over 30,000 sq ft, and housing a gym, spa and child care facilities, Blenheim House is set to be a first class working environment for workers and businesses alike.
The event, hosted at the new development in Waterbeach, saw business representatives from the area come together to admire the impressive business space. Joining them for the evening was entertainment pro Titan the Robot, an incredible 8ft tall partially-mechanised robot costume who has previously performed at the Commonwealth Games and with Rihanna.
Phil Smith, GDIS’ New Business Executive, who attended the launch commented "Blenheim House is a fantastic space that encourages social and collaborative working which I feel perfectly reflects Paragon Land & Estates’s ethos. It has been excellent seeing for myself the new facilities and I can’t wait to see what else Paragon are planning in the future".
