Jubilee Hall Trust held their annual Staff Oscars night on Friday 20th May at G Casino in Leicester Square. The evening kicked off with the JHT Quiz and was followed by a motivational speech from Paralympic Gold Medallist, Giles Long, MBE. Staff then had the opportunity to ‘play the tables’ at the casino with fake money before the main event – the ‘Oscars.’
Club of the Year, was won by The Armoury, which had beaten net profit target by 61%, scored the highest in the recent Customer Survey and had made an outstanding contribution to the local community with its GP Referral programme, Active Ambassador scheme and support with the Outdoor Gym and MEND projects.
Class Instructor of the Year was won by Cheryl Burns, who was singled out for: ‘being full of energy, covering at the last minute and going the extra mile.’
In the main Staff Oscars, there were no less than 19 nominations. There were two Runners-Up – Rizan Niyaz, the Café Manager at Jubilee Hall who has worked for us for over 10 years. He was nominated for: ‘his big smile every day and his very good attitude to work’. The second runner-up was Jubilee Hall Fitness Advisor and TAG graduate, Erykson Mendez, who was nominated for: ‘being friendly, approachable’ and ‘showing his willingness to do work for charity, emphasising what Jubilee Hall stands for.’
The winner of the Jubilee Hall Trust Staff Oscar 2011 was Ruth Owen, who has worked as a Fitness Advisor and Services Manager at both Westminster Gym and The Armoury. Ruth was nominated more times than anyone else for: ‘her hard work with Health & Safety’, for ‘always being supportive and having a smile on her face at the worst of times’ and for having a ‘positive and optimistic outlook, no matter what the challenge.’
The Westminster Gym won the prize for the best club display. Congratulations to all the nominees and winners and we hope to see you again next year!
