Meet Millie, our Santa Paws competition winner

We're delighted to announce Millie the pug, winner of our company-wide Santa Paws pet competition!

To spread a little festive cheer, we asked our people to send in their pictures of their furry friends at Christmas for our inaugural Yuletide pet contest, Santa Paws.

And they certainly did not disappoint. Dogs dressed as elves, cats half way up Christmas trees, even a guniea pig in a mini hard hat; we had some truly inspired and incredibly cute entries.

There was no way we could choose between them, so we whittled it down to a shortlist and let our @WeAreMcAlpine followers on Twitter and Instagram decide in a public vote.    With her slightly crestfallen look, little Millie was a huge hit with the public, romping away with more than 50% of the vote on Twitter and ending up the choice of the vast majority of our @WeAreMcalpine followers on Instagram.

For many of those who commented or voted, Millie’s picture perfectly encapsulated what 2020 has meant to them, especially with the introduction of new lockdown measures.

As one voter commented: “Millie is a whole 2020 mooooood.”

Our thanks go to all those who entered and voted, and we send huge congratulations to Millie and her owner, Graduate Engineer Christina Stylianou.

If you don’t already, we’d love you to follow us on Twitter and Instagram (@WeAreMcAlpine) and LinkedIn (@Sir Robert McAlpine).

Wishing you a Merry Christmas!
