It's been another challenging year for everyone; but one good thing that came out of us not being together at Stopgap last Christmas, was that we decided to our "Secret Santa" a bit differently again this year...


Here is a full list of the charities that benefited from our Secret Santa this year... Crisis, Cool Earth, Grand Prix Trust, Open Door, Force Cancer Charity, Paws Animal Rescue, Cancer Research, Macmillan, Glasgow Peek Project, Samaritans, Asthma UK, Snow Camp, Dachshund Rescue, Smile Train, The Running Charity, Pug Dog Welfare & Rescue, Young Minds, Save Our Spaniels, Chirpy Chickens from CAFOD, Cinque Ports Rescue, Cat Cuddles, GOSH, Battersea Dogs & Cats, Kingston Churches Action On Homelessness, Play For Change, Ridgeback Rescue and The Voices Foundation.

Deck the halls...


Before we were discouraged from going to the office again we were also delighted to welcome back Ann, our receptionist of over 20 years who retired in 2020 and as is tradition, decorated our tree at the London office in Richmond. For those of you who have been to see us in Richmond over the years, you will have been welcomed by the wonderful Ann. It was great to have her back and she is the embodiment of the "Stopgap Family". 



We'd like to wish you all, a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year!
