RAIDING CATS AND DOGS

Posted on 6 December, 2013

Cat or dog? A question that divides the nation. Thieves, however, are less picky, with new research from our client MORE TH>N today showing how intruders are nabbing valuable pets from all over the UK at an alarming rate – whether they come with nine lives or a reputation as man’s best friend.

The findings, from the first Pet Theft Census, revealed how one in every five cat and dog owners have experienced the theft of a pet during their lives and that the equivalent of three pets are stolen each and every day in the UK. Sadly, of all the cat and dog thefts in Britain, over a third (38%) of owners have never seen their four-legged companions again. Coverage for the story was secured in today’s Times, Sun, Daily Express and Daily Mirror.

Littlewoods Unveil Bedtime Story Winner

Posted on 3 December, 2013

We love working with Littlewoods.com, and when the story includes magical ladybirds, mystical trousers and Natasha Hamilton – it just gets better! So it was wonderful to see the conclusion of the brand’s recent ‘national children’s bedtime story’ campaign generating coverage in the Daily Star, Best Online, Liverpool Echo and plenty of others on top of the initial burst of coverage from its initial inception back in September.

And as for the competition itself, inspired by a Littlewoods.com survey, which revealed that one in three parents had never read a bedtime story to their children…? Well, it was a massive success, with 19,000 primary school children submitting their own illustrated tale…. Which made judging very difficult as you can imagine.

The winning story, written by six-year-old Ellie Statham, is free to download as an e-book or audiobook format voiced by pop star and mum of three Natasha Hamilton, who helped to judge the campaign.

THE PERFUME SHOP CHIMES FOR CHANGE

Posted on 25 November, 2013

Shoppers in Birmingham would have been forgiven for needing a double-take yesterday as they walked into The Perfume Shop in The Bull Ring shopping centre. Standing on the wrong side of the counter, serving customers – and signing autographs – was Jamelia.

Birmingham’s favourite TV star was joining the retailer in its support for Chime For Change, the new global campaign founded by GUCCI to raise funds and awareness for the empowerment of girls and women worldwide.

Although she may be more accustomed to the studio than the till, Jamelia was a natural salesgirl and turned on the charm as she informed customers how they could choose from causes aimed at supporting justice, health or education for women

In addition to pulling in the crowds for selfies and the chance to have their very own Jamelia-giftwrapped purchases, the popstress and TV presenter pulled in the press with coverage across the Birmingham Mail and Post, and more due in the Express and Star series and local lifestyle websites and magazines.
