Thorne-based kitchen manufacturer Omega continued its tradition of supporting its local community during the festive season by sponsoring the Thorne and Moorends annual Christmas lights switch-on event for the second consecutive year.
Omega says it places the highest value on its employees, their families and the local community and throughout the year it sponsors and raises money for organisations and charities that it believes align with its core values. Every year Thorne and Moorends Council organises a local event centred around the Christmas lights switch-on creating an opportunity for everyone in the community to come together and celebrate local spirit at the most festive time of year.
Recognising the importance of this occasion Omega supported the event by sponsoring the enchanting Santa's Grotto, selection boxes and face painters – an integral and much-loved part of the celebration which also includes fairground rides, entertainment, late-night shopping and other food and craft stalls and fun festivities.
In the lead up to the festive season, the mayor of Thorne, Susan Durant, visited Omega head office and met with the social committee team to thank them for their invaluable support and sponsorship.
