A Charitable Cause: Thank You

The Marketing People have proudly raised money for Black Country Women’s Aid, by organising a Wear Purple Day. Thank you so much to everyone who supported us and helped us raise a fantastic amount of money to help the deserving charity.

On 9th October we held our Wear Purple Day at The Marketing People’s offices in aid of Black Country Women’s Aid (BCWA). We all wore purple and welcomed clients and friends with tea and cake in exchange for a small donation.

BCWA supported over 8000 women, children and men last year who were victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse. Many of these fled home with nothing but the clothes on their back, and scars from their trauma.

The charity offers refuge accommodation and counselling, plus love and support to help the victims look towards a safer future.

With over 24 calls an hour to BCWA’s helpline and their 6 refuges almost full, we knew we needed to do something to help, and we encourage you to do the same.

How the money raised is used by the charity

Thank you so much to everyone who supported our Wear Purple Day and, with your kind donations, we have raised an astonishing £255 for Black Country Women’s Aid. We know this money will make a huge different to the lives of those less fortunate than us.

Thank you from the children who have benefited from BCWA

David’s appointment comes after the Chase Chamber of Commerce unveiled its new name as Cannock Chase Chamber of Commerce, to give it a stronger geographical standing. David has campaigned for this change during his time on the council, and believes it is essential to have a central location to clarify the business community this Chamber represents. Their new offices were also revealed on Queen Street in Cannock town centre.

David’s new role was revealed at the Chamber’s AGM, held at the Roman Way Hotel on Friday 8th November, by Chris Plant, Director of the Chamber. David will work alongside the Chamber’s President Martyn Jupp, who confirmed he will be extending his tenure for another two years, and fellow Vice Presidents Gill Durkin from Performance Through People and Chris Wheeler from Auditel.

Blitzworld Buggies: A Thrilling Meeting

Blitzworld TMP

It’s always great to have client meetings; there’s nothing better than a face to face to talk business. Some are more fun than others however, and last Friday’s meeting at Blitzworld Buggies was certainly one to remember, as we got to speed the buggies around the track.

We met with Steve Malpass, Managing Director at Blitzworld, at his premises in Stoke-on-Trent to go through various elements we have undertaken for him so far.

Steve engaged The Marketing People to help him present his business more effectively, starting with a more professional brand logo and scoping to suggest edits to his existing website, alongside a digital advertising campaign.

Steve was extremely happy with the work we have done so far, so it was time we got first-hand experience of the buggies and the exhilarating experience they provide.

Extremely easy to drive, built for safety, and able to handle any twist and turn of the track, Blitzworld buggies are resilient, safe and real good fun to drive.

Thanks to Steve for letting us experience the thrill of the buggies, and ending our week on a high.

Can you handle it? If you’re after an adrenaline-filled adventure, look no further than Blitzworld for road legal and off- road buggies that pack some punch.

The Charlie Ramsey Research Fund: Help Us Help Them

Here at The Marketing People, we recently met with The Charlie Ramsey Research Fund to see if we could help. Did you know? This very worthwhile local charity raises money for research for complex congenital heart defects, donates defibrillators to schools in the West Midlands and promotes vital organ donation.

Our SEO Manager John Hoey has worked with the charity for 5 years and our Videographer Kerry Hatfield’s brother was born with a congential heart condition, so the work The Charlie Ramsey Research Fund does is very close to our hearts.

2nd November – Meeting with The Charlie Ramsey Research Fund

On 2nd November The Marketing People had the pleasure of meeting with The Charlie Ramsey Research Fund and we are now committed to helping the charity, and raising awareness of the fantastic work they do.

The charity was set up to raise money for research into congenital heart disease in the hope that one day a cure can be found for all babies and children living with this terrible condition.

They also donate defibrillators to schools in the West Midlands, as this vital piece of equipment increases the individual’s chance of survival following the onset of a cardiac arrest.

Another objective of the charity is to promote organ donation; this amazingly generous act saves thousands of lives in the UK every year. To check if you are already on the organ donor list, or to register, click here.

Thank you to all the volunteers who selflessly give up their time to help those less fortunate.

We look forward to supporting The Charlie Ramsey Research Fund and hope that you will consider doing the same for this fantastic charity.
