It’s Christmas time and hopefully you are all enjoying a well-deserved break over the festive season. It’s been a busy year and now it’s time to hopefully get refreshed, re-energised and ready for 2017. The mince pies are indeed in sight, but just before you go we thought we would give you an update to let you know how we got on with the Raretec Christmas Raffle! This year our raffle was in aid of the Simon Community. The Simon Community is an amazing organisation who do great work all year round, as we are sure you are aware. However, Christmas time can be an especially trying time for many and we are delighted that we have the opportunity to give them a helping hand.

This year we decided to keep the prizes simple. Participants had the chance to get their hands on one of five restaurant vouchers worth €150. Winners had the option of choosing their favourite restaurant for the voucher, or alternatively of donating the prize to a charity of their choice. The lucky winners were: Emma Bradley, Kyle Walsh, Conor Browne, Sinead Doyle and Lizabeth McCoy. In addition to this, for every entry to the raffle we received, we made a one euro donation to the Simon Community along with our own donation. We would like to say a big thank you to all you actuaries  and trainee actuaries who participated this year. We hope you have a lovely Christmas break and we look forward to being in further contact with you in the New Year.

Wishing all our clients and contacts every success in 2017,

Jacqui van Teutem, Danielle Ward and the the Raretec Team
