Hasn’t 2018 flown?! We had a Royal Wedding, a memorable summer in terms of the heatwave. And football NEARLY came home! GDPR came to pass and nothing came to a halt as a result. Brexit still has us scratching our heads!
Within the business, 2018 has been really positive. The team have performed brilliantly and we have focused in well on what we are best at doing; working closely with clients on generating ideas and seeing those through to production.
We ran a very successful coffee cup pledge campaign which saw over 50 coffee lovers go disposable cup free for a month – helping to reduce landfill and money in discounts from using the Steel City travel mug. Also between September and December, MD James Biggin was part of and completed the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business Programme, a challenging and valuable course for both James and the company.
We are delighted to support The Children’s Hospital Charity again this Christmas. The charity’s snowflake campaign has raised a record-breaking amount towards its Emergency Department appeal. The Steel City team donned their Christmas attire and baked festive treats to support the charity’s Building a Better Future Appeal.
The team were also pleased to be able to support Russell Richardson’s ‘collect 40 challenge’ to gift useful items to youth homeless charity Centrepoint. Thanks to the generosity of our suppliers, we were able to provide boxes of gifts such as travel mugs, notepads and pens for the 60 young people living in the temporary accommodation provided by Centrepoint in Barnsley.
We would like to thank you once again for your continued support and we wish you all the very best for 2019.
