Our PR, Digital and Team Highlights for April

Kicking off the second quarter of the year with a bang! Check out what we’ve been up to in April…

Moda Breaks Ground at Great Charles Street, Birmingham
In April we celebrated the ground-breaking of Moda’s latest rental neighbourhood ‘Great Charles Street’ alongside contractor John Sisk & Son. Great Charles Street in the Jewellery Quarter represents the beginning of a pioneering master plan for Moda Living in the City.

The team organised the event for stakeholders, council members and press. The event kicked off with lunch at Saint Paul’s house, followed by speeches from SISK, Tony Brooks from Moda Living, Mayor Andy Street, Cllr. Ian Ward and Prof. Carl Chinn who discussed the history of the area. To wrap we took event-goers on-site for the official groundbreaking.

Business press secured included Insider Media, Business Desk, and Business Live.

BOXPARK Liverpool
Award-winning dining, retail and leisure operator BOXPARK Liverpool, which is opening Autumn 2023, announced that applications are now open for prospective food traders.

Focussing on emerging and independent street food businesses on a regional and national scale, the team work to secure the call-out with a media release and sell-in. Coverage highlights included The Guide Liverpool, Explore Liverpool and YM Liverpool.

Global Award Win

It’s always great to get an award win and this month we won a Global Social Media Award for our campaign with Paddington Bear - ‘Paddington’s Royal Visit’ for Best Use of Social Media for Entertainment.

We tapped into the national celebrations around the Jubilee, posting content to complement the clip of Paddington enjoying tea with the Queen, and took a subtle, respectful approach to the Queen's passing later in the year.

Team News
We are celebrating three promotions this month! Congratulations to Alex who has been promoted to Account Executive, Hugh who has been promoted to Senior Account Manager and James who has been promoted to Senior Account Executive. What a way to begin the second quarter, we can’t wait to see them excel in their new roles.

Carousel Charity Run
We are so proud of the four members of our team who ran in the relay in the Manchester Marathon to raise money for Natalie Kate Moss Trust.

The team surpassed their goal and raised over £1,000 for the charity, set up in 2012 by the Moss family after the sudden death of Natalie at the age of 26 due to a sudden brain haemorrhage. A massive thank you to everyone who donated, if you still haven’t and would like to, you can donate to our JustGiving page here.
