Christmas lunch with Devmito

The “turquoise company” with whom we share our office, Devmito, treated the European Sign Language Centre to a lovely Christmas lunch!
A very nice gesture.

Although – we’re sad to say that it was the last day working for ETC for our staff member Edona.
We wish her the very best with her other plans!
