Life at CST

Alzheimer’s Cupcake Day

14/06/2018 - CST Offices - Elstree

In aid of Alzheimer’s research we took part in their Cupcake Day charity fundraiser and raised over £95 for the brilliant cause. We were very spoilt for choice with a wide variety of cakes, biscuits, pastries, chocolates, cheesecakes – and much more! We’re proud to be supporting such a worthy cause, who is dedicated to helping the 850,000 people living with Dementia in the UK.


28/03/2018 - CST Offices - Elstree

After a busy few months moving offices we finally settled in and celebrated with a range of Easter themed activities. We enjoyed a morning tea filling up on Hot Cross Buns and way too much chocolate as well as an Easter themed bingo and egg-decorating competition. Congratulations to Jan who was crowned egg decorating winner! 

Christmas Celebration

14/12/2017 - CST Offices - London

To celebrate the holiday season and the end of 2017, we all took some time away from our busy schedules and enjoyed a delicious spread of savoury and sweet cuisine. Once we were stuffed full of food we hosted our annual raffle with all ticket proceeds being donated to Crisis at Christmas. We loved seeing everyone in their Christmas jumpers and festive clothes!

Macmillan Coffee Morning

09/10/2017 - CST Offices - London

At CST we love any occasion for sweet treats and luckily there are many avid bakers amongst us.  We were spoilt for choice for this year’s Macmillan Coffee Morning with shortbread biscuits, red velvet cake, white choc cookies, victoria sponge cake, a wide selection of cupcakes and even savoury quiches as well. All together we raised over £50 for Macmillan Cancer Support and can’t wait to do it all again next year!

Guess the baby

04/08/2017 - CST Offices - London

This month we dug through photo albums to find baby photos of ourselves and stuck them up in the office for all to see. The team then had to guess who was who while enjoying some pretty embarrassing pictures! With some people unrecognisable to their baby self the task definitely wasn’t easy.

Summer Lunch

01/06/2017 - The Hare - Harrow

The team at CST were treated to a superb three-course meal at local brassiere, the Hare, to kick off the summer. Meals included summer veg risotto, tasty minute steak and perfect pork belly finished off with coffee and dessert. The occasion was perfect to get everyone together and celebrate a successful first half of the year.

Cancer Research Fundraising

25/05/2017 - CST Offices - London

We’ve had a fantastic few weeks of fundraising at CST, and we really ended it on a sweet note. We got very creative with our homemade bakes, with everything from banana bread and chocolate biscuit cake to coconut slices, crumble cake, icecream cone cupcakes and rhubarb cheesecake – we were very spoilt for choice! Everyone donated generously, and we were able to raise over £100 from the bake sale and our ‘Guess the Number of Sweets’ competition, won by Abbie Sheppard. All donations will all go towards Cancer Research UK’S life-saving research. 

Holi Festival with Dishoom

12/03/2017 - York Hall - Bethnal Green

Never one to miss a celebration, CST partied with Dishoom at their Holi festival in York Hall. It was an abundance of colour throwing, delicious street food and quite a few drinks! With over 2,000 revellers in attendance over the course of the event, it was a party not to be missed and we will be back next year. It's a few days later and we are still finding colour in places we didn't know we had places! 

Yoga Day

20/01/2017 - CST Offices - London

To encourage CST staff to keep their healthy lifestyle resolutions we welcomed a professional yoga instructor to teach us the art of the discipline. With four different classes to choose from, each with their own unique objective, staff got the option to focus on relaxation, flexibility, balance or re-energising the body. The taster classes gave us a great opportunity to wind down and left us feeling truly refreshed.

Christmas Party

10/12/2016 - The Village Hotel - Elstree

CST staff spent the night dining and dancing at our annual Christmas Party, a great way to celebrate the holiday season and the end to a successful year. With the Brazilian inspired theme, we enjoyed entertainment from salsa dancers and plenty of food and drinks. We can't wait to do it all again next year!

International Food Day

22/11/2016 - CST Offices - London

In aid of our Marketing intern's volunteering trip to India we asked the CST team to bring in their favourite International dish to share with the office. All the money raised was donated to ICS who run a government funded programme which provide volunteer placements for young people who want to make a difference. A big thank-you to everyone who baked and cooked, helping us to raise a total of £56.65 for ICS.


31/10/2016 - CST Offices - London

We had a spook-tacular day celebrating Halloween in style with plenty of ghoulish treats to enjoy. Thankfully there were no tricks played in the CST office...because we are definitely not a fan of spiders, even if they are only fake!

Macmillan Coffee Morning

30/09/2016 - CST Offices - London

Macmillan Coffee Morning

Thanks to the Great British Bake Off, CST staff have been honing their baking skills ready for the next company bake off, and what better way to show off our baking prowess than by fundraising for Macmillan Cancer Support. Our coffee morning, part of a national fundraising event organised by the charity, cooked up a mix of biscuits, cookies, cakes, breads and even a delicious lamb biryani! We raised a total of £125 for the worthy cause, which will go towards helping people facing cancer.  

Wellness Day

20/07/2016 - CST Offices - London

Wellness Day

Staff at CST enjoyed a day of relaxing, rejuvenating and re-energising with our very first Wellness Day. With an array of healthy food and snacks available throughout the day, a professional masseuse, yoga and a gym and nutrition Q&A session, we left feeling fresh and fabulous... we think our yoga posing might need a little bit of work though.  

The Lion King

02/03/2016 - Lyceum Theatre - Covent Garden

With The Lion King musical due to close in June, we grabbed our last chance to enjoy this mesmerising spectacle ourselves. A fantastic night was had by us and friends of CST. The talented stars of the show had us in the aisles singing Hakuna Matata! 

Bowling at Lava Lanes

29/02/2016 - Lava Lanes - Middlesex

Lava Lanes

CST descended upon Lava Lanes with the majority of people competing to be crowned bowling champion. Massive congratulations go to Account Manager, Laura Fell, who won with a massive 126 points! Enjoy your cheeky Nando's voucher and bottle of Champagne *hiccup*.
