100 Club member wins the holiday of a lifetime!

Every year the top 20% of Newcross staff are rewarded for their dedication and hard-work by being entered into the 100 Club. Being a member of the 100 Club offers a host of rewards; recent members have visited both River Cottage and Rick Stein's Padstow Seafood School. Newcross is a business that strongly believes in rewarding its exceptional members of staff, which is why our 100 club members are also entered into a prize draw with the chance to win the holiday of a lifetime!

Suzanna Button was lucky enough to win the choice of an all-inclusive holiday in Spain, a luxury cruise or a thrilling skiing trip in the French Alps. Whilst this would be a difficult decision for some, Suzanna was certain of her decision to go skiing in Valmorel and fulfil a lifelong ambition, stating "It was something I have wanted to do since I was a child, but had not had the opportunity to do so".

Suzanna, a Central Support Senior Staff Allocation Officer in Bristol, received excellent feedback in her role and showed the attributes and leadership abilities to excel within Newcross. As a member of the 100 club she was entered into the random draw and became the fortunate recipient of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Suzanna was understandably shocked and delighted to find out that she would soon be headed for the picturesque Valmorel region in France.

So Suzanna packed her bags for the Tarentaise Valley in the heart of the French Alps, and was joined by her partner Matt. Having never skied before both Suzanna and Matt found themselves beginning their one week stay on the beginner slopes, or as the locals may have called them, 'le debutant'. However, with lessons included in this fantastic package, it wasn't long before they were both taking on the more advanced slopes as if they had been skiing for years.

When they weren't experiencing the high-octane thrills that Valmorel had to offer, Suzanna and Matt had the chance to relax in the resort's spa and Jacuzzi facilities, or unwind in the swimming pool. They took full advantage of the breath-taking views by taking leisurely walks amongst the beautiful scenery, fully absorbing the tranquil atmosphere of the local area.

Though Suzanna was long in disbelief that she had won the holiday (which she describes as a 'dream come true'), by the end both she and Matt did not want to leave, vowing to one day return to 'le piste'. The holiday was clearly a memorable one, a reward that Suzanna (and Matt) greatly appreciated.

The 100 Club, and the opportunities and rewards that come with it, are just one of a host of incentives for Newcross employees. Stephen Pattrick CEO said:

"The 100 club is all about rewarding our exceptional members of staff and giving them a chance to develop and innovate within the business. The holiday prize draw is another way for us to recognise the hard work and dedication our employees show, and I'm delighted to see such a worthy winner."

As Suzanna herself can testify, anything is possible for the dedicated staff we are proud to say work for Newcross.
