Hanson Zandi 30 Year Challenge Charity and Sponsorship

30 Christmas Boxes Charity and Sponsorship

Hanson Zandi packed and wrapped 30 Christmas boxes for Operation Christmas Child on behalf of Samaritan’s Purse www.samaritans-purse.org.uk and Link to Hope http://linktohope.co.uk/. Both charities do amazing things to help and support vulnerable families across the world. We packed the boxes with pens, pads, small games and toiletries. Meanwhile we are tracking our boxes online and will soon know where they have ended up. Exciting!

 

The Dash Ball Sponsorship

The Dash Charity (Domestic Abuse Stops Here) is a local charity that provides refuge for domestic abuse victims at risk. Last year their grant was cut completely so they now 100% reliant on donations. So we donated £2,500 for their ball, which made an additional £4,000 from the auction and ticket sales.

 

MS Chiltern Centre

Hanson Zandi was proud sponsor of the Chiltern MS Centre 30 Year Anniversary Celebration Party. The Hanson Zandi team also walked the Chiltern MS Centre Marlow mile in the pouring rain. Great fun. Great people. Check out our previous blog for more details and the team pic.

Season’s Greetings

This is the last blog of 2015. It’s been a great year. We have challenged ourselves and been inspired by the strength and positivity of those who are less fortunate than ourselves. It has been our best ever awards year – we won 4 creative awards including Gold and Bronze. Plus we have just heard that we have been nominated in the Digital Patient Initiatives category of the Pharmaceutical Marketing Society awards 2015, which is fabulous news.

So all that is left for me to say is thank you to our clients for continuing to believe in us. We feel privileged to work on life-saving and life-changing brands that make a real difference. Thank you to our supplier partners for their excellent support throughout the year. 

Have a wonderful magical Christmas and continued success to all in 2016.
