Meet the Team – Christmas Special 2015 – Simon Corner

Favourite Christmas song?

Who would your Father Christmas be?

Who would your Father Christmas be?
There’s only one Father Christmas! Just in case he reads the Kerfoot Blog I don’t want him to think I don’t believe and take me off his list.

Most embarrassing Christmas moment?

A masterpiece in development

2015 saw an exciting development in The Kerfoot Group History books with the progression and development of Project Van Gogh taking place in Goole, East Yorkshire.
With Sunflower oil demand rising, greater supply was needed and a £1.6million pound investment was made to further storage facilities available within Goole in order to meet those rising demands.
Fondly named Project Van Gogh due to the artist’s famous works involving sun flowers, the development has provided

Race day gallops to success

Despite the forecasts, the sun shone down on the 5th September in North Yorkshire, when The Kerfoot Group hosted their 2015 Race Day at Thirsk Racecourse courtesy of Chief Executive Jennifer Kerfoot.
Dapper hats, smart outfits and few slightly more bronzed folk filled The Kerfoot Marque and that’s just in reference to the men!
Teams from both Goole and Northallerton descended on the racecourse, where of course oil was at the forefront with each table named after an oil source

Have you tried Kerfoot’s African Black Soap yet?

African Black Soap originates from West Africa, where it has been used for centuries by Ghanaians to help with skin issues. Indigenous techniques of creating African Black Soap have been passed down from generation to generation to keep the natural black soaps close to Mother Nature.

Children in Need 2013 – Bare Faced Ladies and the Kerfoot Glamour Girls (or boys!)

It’s no secret that we are a charitable bunch here at The Kerfoot Group and we love nothing more than raising money for good causes, particularly as an excuse to eat cake and be a bit silly! So on Friday 15th November the whole team were thrilled to take part in Children in Need 2014.

There was plenty going on…It goes without saying that Mary (Berry) Robson, Group Receptionist baked one of her delicious cakes using Kerfoot Oils, in the shape of Pudsey Bear of course.

Magic Numbers

3 is a Magic Number sang de La Soul, so that got me thinking about other magic numbers, for we have associated numbers throughout history to things which have now become so interlinked that there is almost a magical connection. Other tunes with a number in the title include 99 Red balloons, 76 Trombones, When I’m 64… and some popular music combinations have a number in their name:

Kerfoot Argan Oil Challenge

Argan Oil is all over the media, it really is the hot topic as the “new super oil for hair and skincare.”

Kerfoot Speciality Oils stock Argan Oil & even we are shocked by how popular this product is proving.  Our own Elizabeth Kerfoot, Executive Director, has been using it for the last few months & now swears by it – forget Creme de la Mer & Lancome apparently!

So the KSO girls and Jennifer Kerfoot have taken up the challenge too.  Instead of
