Welcome

Welcome to this year’s Holiday Party! In this far from normal year, the uncertainty and challenges caused by the pandemic made it hard to connect to those we love. We created a schedule of games and activities to help bring us together to celebrate being with one another and doing what Next Jumpers love best… competing to win. I hope you had a blast over the course of the afternoon and wish you health, wealth and happiness for the festive period and new year.

— Becky, Chief Party Officer (CPO)

OUR TEAM

This event was organised by Next Jumpers for Next Jumpers and their loved ones. Having a mission outside of our core responsibilities gave us an opportunity to develop as leaders and practice our decision making in areas that won’t “sink the ship” if it goes wrong.

A good practice sets the bar high – we set out to host a party to beat all parties – providing a well-deserved celebration at the end of a tough year.

The party’s already begun

Gingerbread Competition
Compete to create the most original gingerbread creation. Doesn’t matter what shape or size, as long as it’s all edible! Voting is open to the public until Friday 18th, then the top five most ‘liked’ on the website will be showcased at the party to determine the overall winner.

Vendors

details of the local vendors we partnered with to bring you the Holiday Party

Peardrop​

Today’s food is provided by Peadrop, a luxury events catering company with a passion for cooking, for parties & people, for nature, the environment & for quality, seasonal produce. The company were recommended to us by Jessie, who is related to the founder, Rose. Having met Rose, her passion and excitement about food really inspired us! Peardrop have gone from catering weddings and large events pre-pandemic for some of the biggest names in fashion (Stella McCartney and Alice Temperley to name a few!), to almost no work over lockdown. Adapting and iterating in the latter half of the year has meant they are able to provide delicious platters and ultimate dine in experiences, direct to our homes!
