We would like to say a big thank you to our catering partners apetito who recently provided delicious food at several tea parties that were held across the HICA group to celebrate the Group’s recent success recent at the Hull Daily Mail Health and Care Awards.
The tea parties gave an opportunity for management and colleagues to come together in celebration of the winners. Our Client Development Manager from apetito, Mark, was on hand to prepare the sumptuous treats which were enjoyed by everybody. Our grateful thanks to Mark for all of his efforts – true partnership working!
