Josh and Anna complete the Southampton Half Marathon

Well done to Josh and Anna, who both took part in the Southampton Half-Marathon yesterday and finished with excellent times.
Josh completed the half marathon in 1:36:02, placing 276th out of 3750 participants. Anna finished in 01:52:41, placing 1101th out of 3750 participants.

The half-marathon started on the High Street, shortly after 10am, with the course taking in a range of the city’s highlights, including the gruelling Itchen Bridge, a packed Riverside Park and even an inspiring detour alongside the pitch at St Mary’s stadium, home to Southampton Football Club. Runners finished outside Southampton’s Guildhall, where they were given their goodie bags, bananas and alcohol free beer!

Despite feeling very sore today, Josh and Anna are still over the moon with their achievement and can’t wait to take part again next year.

We’re off to Goodwood!

Our tickets have arrived for Goodwood! We’ll be heading to the races on Friday 4th August in our best attire, ready to place our bets. Keep a look out on our social media throughout the day to see what we get up to.

Easter biscuits

We’ve been spoilt in the office this morning with these delicious, homemade Easter biscuits. Our new graphic designer, Caroline, kindly brought these in and we can’t get enough of them. We’re looking forward to seeing what other goodies she can make!

Spending a Morning at the University of Southampton’s Computer Labs

After an exciting meeting at the Uni of Southampton about future events for our clients , Josh was given a tour of the Uni’s newly refurbished computer labs.  The facilities received a £4 million investment in 2015, which went towards more than 200 high-spec multi-core PCs, as well as iMacs and self-studying areas. The state-of-the-art labs were specifically designed for students studying Electronics, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, IT and Web Science.

We Escaped from Alcatraz!

It’s not every morning that you get locked in a cell with only 60 minutes to escape! The team had a great time at Houdini’s Escape Room, in Southampton, and managed to break free with only 2 minutes to spare.

Camkids: Sreylim Update

As proud sponsors of Camkids- The Cambodian Children’s Charity, we were delighted to receive this update video from the Charity to see how Sreylim, the girl we sponsor, is getting on. Camkids helps many orphans and abandoned children like Sreylim grow up in a happy and stable environment. Now 16 years old, Sreylim enjoys spending time with friends and her studies are going well. She also hopes to go to University soon. Most recently her orphanage received a new cooker from Camkids, which the staff and children have both been enjoying.

Brussel sprouts invade the office

Things are getting sprout of control this afternoon at TLC headquarters!

Ready to be #spooked!

Previous visitors of our TLC Life page will know that we are very adventurous and like to take part in several team activities throughout the year.
So, we have booked our third team activity for next month.

14th October – is the day when all of us here at TLC are attending Thorpe Park’s Fright Night.

We’ll be discovering a huge amount of fear and terror, whilst walking along the island’s deserted railroad, in the newest scare maze – Platform 15. We will also be trekking along the overgrown railway line, hoping not to lose our tracks and avoiding disturbing the haunted souls that were once aboard.

Not only will we be stumbling through a live action maze but also going on thrilling rides in the dark including The Swarm, the UK’s first winged rollercoaster, Saw – The ride’s 100ft ‘beyond vertical’ drop and Stealth, one of Europe’s fastest and tallest rollercoasters.

Can we outrun what lies at the end of the line?

We’ll be sharing our scares with you very soon…
