Much is made of providing value for money. But how is it measured? Some companies measure value for money financially – something we’re delighted to say we can offer – whether public or private sector.
Only last week, Stockton Borough Council announced considerable financial savings made when they joined forces with Darlington to develop Xentrall Shared Services – basing their collaboration at Lingfield Point.
Other companies base value for money on customer care and service, employee retention and/or productivity and once again, we think we come top of the list for these too. Events, promotions, networking and partnership briefings all help organisations and individuals get the best from their business.
One of our most productive, charitable partnerships is with St Teresa’s Hospice – a fantastic local charity – and we’ve been delighted to host a number of events in conjunction with the fundraising team including the spectacular once-a-year ‘Christmas Cracker’ carol concert that took place on Saturday. The annual event – celebrating its 10th anniversary – featured over 200 performers attracted an audience of hundreds and raising thousands for charity.
Drawing together a huge range of choirs and musicians from across the area, led by musical director John Forsyth they perform together for one night only. The audience was particularly moved by a special performance of The Snowman, the full film was shown with the orchestra playing the score and Cockerton Primary School choir performing Walking in the Air.
We love working together with any of our partners ensuring that all our friends, colleagues and even neighbours to get the best from Lingfield Point and the Tees Valley. Watch this space for the soon to be released annual calendar of events and promotions with our cafe ‘canteen’.
