What a month! Here are some of the things the 5-9 family got up to in December 🤩

1. P-A-R-T-A-Y 🎄

A group of people at the Welsh ICE Christmas Party

Friday the 10th December we did what ICE does best and came together to celebrate the festivities with a Christmas party like no other!

There was an exchange of presents in the form of a ‘Secret Santa’, handed out by the man himself! 🎅🏻

And of course, there was Bandaoke 🤘🎙️ So many people took to the stage to serenade us with SO many amazing songs! From Tenacious D to Bing Crosby, all of us were up on that dancefloor shaking our booties having the times of our lives!

2. Awards Galore 🏆

Trophy and stars
We’re so so SOOOOO proud of all our 5-9 Club alumni for following their dreams and absolutely smashing it! But when they get nominated for awards as well… Cherry on the cake right there! 🍒

Shout out to a bunch of our 5-9’ers whose work has been recognised this month:

3. Christmas Blog 🎄

Christmas Party
It’s been a challenging year and we wanted you to end 2021 on a high note by spreading the Christmas cheers far and wide! So, we wrote a blog underlining some easy peasy ways for you to do this within your organisation! 🎄

We gave you our top six tips on how to get the best out of your staff and their Christmas spirit ✨

If you’ve not read it already, here’s the link!

4. Christmas Market 🎁

Danger Doodles exhibiting at the Welsh ICE Christmas Market

We always like to try our best to give our members an opportunity to exhibit their products and earn a couple of bob at the same time, so we decided to host a Christmas market!

What was extra special for us was the number of 5-9 Club alumni who had products on display 😍

A BIG 5-9 shout out to:

Zoë Gable of Cyhoeddiadau Lemonêd
Jen Danger Harding of Danger Doodles
Georgina Kent of Georgina Doodles
Beth Trevett of The Wonder Bar
Mim Gibbs of Mim Gibbs Creates

And of course, our very own 5-9 Club facilitator Janine Jones, selling her amazing Boudoir Dolls

5. A Look Into 2022 👀

Dan Spain, Janine Jones, Lesley Williams and Tomas Phillips. Welsh ICE 5-9 Facilitators

2021 was an awesome year for the 5-9 Club… with new partners, LOADS of new and exciting entrepreneurs, and of course our team quadrupling in size, it’s been a wild ride!

But now we look forward to 2022, a year destined to be bigger and better again 🚀

18 – The number of 5-9 Club cohorts we’ll be delivering

4 – The number of new partners already signed up to deliver an exclusive 5-9 Club for their customers. And more in the works to follow!

Workshops 🖥️ This year we’re looking to do things a little differently, with workshops running less frequently, but packing a much heavier punch when delivered! They’ll be bigger, better, and more beneficial than ever! 🙌

That should be enough good news for you all… for now!

5-9 Club family – we are in awe of your drive and passion to chase your dreams 🚀✨ You’ve made our 2021 a year to remember 💖 Keep going! We believe in you!

Stop by again at the end of next month, to get the low-down on January’s news!

Cheers to 2022! 🥂

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year 🎄 🎇
