How many directors does it take to move a sofa?


Plus 2 Designers, a Head of Copy, an Account Director and a Data Analyst.

It'll be worth it for our new super meeting room basement though!

Clever banner ads

Having spent a few weeks looking for furniture for our new basement-come-meeting-room, these very clever banner ads have started to appear. Now, I might be reading too much into it, and it could just be a massive coincidence, but these ads for Habitat are showing me the exact things I was looking at on their site. Clever, eh?

More surprise and delight

I've just returned to my desk to find this lovely gift from Helena and Janna from Cancer Research UK.

I often find myself talking about the importance of surprising and delighting donors (see here). This is a great reminder of that.

So, Helena and Janna, thank you too, the pleasure was ours!

A nice start to the week

I got to do a nice thing today and it's all thanks to Linda from Action for Children. Linda was the winner of our Christmas Heroes Quiz and she decided to give her £500 prize money to a project on My Action for Children.

Linda wanted to support a place called The Grove in Aylesbury. They need a special removable seat for their minibus. It will enable young disabled people to access clubs, sports activities and other community events. You can read more about it here (and donate as well if you like!)

So, thanks to Linda, I got to go online and make the donation. It felt good. (Oh, and yes, I am aware it wasn't my money and it wasn't my choice but I enjoyed it nevertheless).
