925 Challenge | Display For MS-UK
“The 925 Challenge will see regional businesses, armed with nothing more than a countdown clock and a head full of creative ideas, going head to head in a race against time.”
For 9 weeks, 2 days and 5 hours – we have been taking part in the 925 Challenge for MS-UK. We wanted to take on the challenge and raise money for MS-UK whilst encouraging other local businesses to display their products and all for a great cause.
We decided to take one of our most popular products – the classic ‘roller banner’ and sell them for a discounted price. Donating 50% from every sale to MS-UK.
We have had small and large displays from local businesses including The Tabor Group, Electrosonic, University of Essex, Charles Derby, Cambridgeshire Army Cadet Force — Chatteris, Newmarket, Burwell, Waterbeach, Longstanton, Linton & Soham, VXS Gym Wear, Essex Fire Sprinklers, Jez Coan Design, SVC Group, Phil The Rhythm, Swim2Swim, Lola’s Hair Boutique and Sassi Lift Systems.
One of our clients even pledged to donate a ‘top up’ donation at the end of our campaign – and kept his promise.
Adding #DisplayForMSUK to our busy production schedule has been.. Satisfyingly rewarding. We have been able to support the charity whilst supporting and encouraging the success of others, which sits with our business values perfectly.
Large format production brings everyone together at Direct Solutions, and with the added excitement of being able to make the donation after we have printed, produced and delivered the #DisplayForMSUK product, it makes it all worthwhile.
The campaign has been a great success. We have exceeded our target goal of £925.00 — and raised £2250.00.
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to take part in the first corporate challenge for MS-UK – it has been a blast competing with other local businesses and we highly recommend everyone to get involved next year.
A special thank you to Laura, Lucy and Jill from MS-UK who have offered endless support, guidance and a cracking selection of motivational posts throughout the entire duration of the challenge — your enthusiasm is contagious and we cannot praise you enough.
