Christmas Parties since 2015

We're waiting for Nathan Soper to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Health and Care Professions Council,

In 2016, the absolute boss that is Simon Hoyle, made an FOI request with reference FR04557, concerning the expenditure on Christmas Parties that the HCPC had made that year and for previous years.

Well in the spirit of continuity, it is now 4 years on from then and newer data is required.

1. Please can you give me the itemized cost of the HCPC Christmas Parties from 2016 to 2019 inclusive, and the total number of attendees.
2. Proposed budget for 2020 Christmas party if it has been made
3. In the previous FOI request (FR04557), a cost of £72 per person x 224 people and £145.15 on extra booze was disclosed. However this tally falls short of the total of £17,052.15 by a whopping £779. What was that money spent on?

Yours faithfully,

Nathan Soper

Dear Mr Soper

total amount spent on Christmas parties.

 

Your request has been handled under the Freedom of Information Act 2000
(FOIA).

 

Please find below our response to your questions.

 

1. Please can you give me the itemized cost of the HCPC Christmas Parties
from 2016 to 2019 inclusive, and the total number of attendees.

 

2016 - £17,748 for a three-course lunch and soft drinks for 266 attendees.

2017 - £872.40 – cakes and soft drinks at Park House for 250 attendees.

2018 - £95.00 soft drinks and mince pies at Park House, no record of
attendees.

2019 – zero cost as the Senior Management Team bought cakes for attendees
at Park House, no record of attendees.

 

2. Proposed budget for 2020 Christmas party if it has been made.

 

There will be no Christmas party in 2020 as the organisation made the
decision not to spend money on this type of activity.

 

3. In the previous FOI request (FR04557), a cost of £72 per person x 224
people and £145.15 on extra booze was disclosed. However this tally falls
