Lockdown Activities for Staff

There’s lots happening at Fold Hill, so we’ll pop it all here for you to check out…!

Storytime at Fold Hill! (Friday 20/11/2020)

Lockdown relief,  we would like to invite those who are in the office or working at home to a coffee teams meeting with a bit of a difference.  We would like you to take 20 mins out of the day to forget about work and lockdown and have a bit of fun…

The Team Story Game

You to provide the story, Vicki (HR Manager) will provide the story telling!
The Team Story Game (also known as the “Once Upon a Time…” game) is a funny game involving creativity and a group of people making a story together.

We will construct the story. Each person is allowed to write up to 4 sentences and must continue the story.  Person 1 will start and send a paragraph to me, I will send the first paragraph to person 2 so you know what was written the paragraph before. Person 3 will get paragraph 2 only and so on. 

The idea for the story is the Queen asking Fold Hill Foods to make something truly unique for her dogs… We shall see you there…!

Our third Virtual Staff Quiz (26/06/2020) went down a treat!

With Kelly, our previous winner, alongside her niece as the masters of our quiz night, we had a great time. From the latest in sport to dog-breed names (of course!) the questions were great fun.
It goes without saying, these virtual staff quiz nights are very important as they are all in aid of the Guide Dogs Charity, UK, meaning we can raise funds for a great cause while having fun and learning lots of new and very random information…!
Congratulations to Kate Hogan, our winner of the night! We look forward to even more quizzes to come in the future…

Please Join our Second Virtual Staff Quiz!

…The next virtual quiz for Fold Hill staff and families to get involved in will be this Friday (22nd May 2020)! We look forward to seeing even more staff members there! To join, simply call marketing, message us via the Fold Hill Facebook or Instagram pages, or send an email to bakery@laughingdogfood.com.
We’d love to see you there!

…A massive thank you to everyone who has made a donation to our Just Giving page so far, which helped us to raise more vital funds for our charity partner, the Guide Dogs, who are providing lots of incredible COVID-19 support packages and helplines for those living with sight loss.

A Dog-Happy Twist on the Loo-Roll Challenge…!

Further to this, our hard-working staff members have been very keen to bring smiles to our customers with their very own dog-happy twist on the Loo-Roll Challenge! Thank you to everyone who took the time to bring this idea to life! This is now live on our Youtube channel!

Our First Virtual Staff Quiz Night!

On Friday (01/05/20), we celebrated the start of May with a virtual staff quiz night! It went down a treat with Cass as our brilliant Quiz Master! Our reigning champion, Nick, stole first place with a solid 48/50 correct answers! Winning a Laughing Dog food Guide Dogs Charity hamper, Nick has volunteered himself as our next Quiz Master!

Nick enjoyed winning his Guide Dog hamper!
Keeping fit for Charity!

In addition members of Fold Hill staff have come together to walk, run and cycle for our charity partner, the Guide Dogs. Each week we add up the team’s mileage and keep a running total of miles covered….we aim to cover the equivalent distance of John O’Groats to Land’s End. Pop to our Laughing Dog food page here to find out more (and watch the team’s YouTube videos!). If any members of staff would like to join, simply pop us a message using the contact details above! The more, the merrier!
