Putting a child in charge of Mother’s day

Posted by Amelia PuttTagged , ,

Our work with Florismart showcases the talents of independent florists, so for Mother’s Day we put that to the test by asking 4-year-old Aariyan to pick the flowers for a special bouquet for his mum.

Mother’s Day is a key date in the floristry calendar, and independent florists have the edge on supermarket counterparts with their ability to create amazing bespoke gifts. With Aariyan in charge, could our florist rise to the challenge and still create something beautiful?

Is a good speech enough for our party politicians?

Posted by Hattie HughesTagged , , ,

With the end of the SNP party conference on Tuesday, most of the major parties have had their time in the spotlight for this year. In both Manchester and Brighton, Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn had a lot to prove in their keynote speeches. Conferences consist of a vast range of events, from Russell Brand and Labour MPs discussing problem gambling, to a discussion at the Conservative conference on supporting Armed Forces children’s education, but the leaders’ speeches are always a key moment in the timetable. Not only do they offer a chance to speak directly to the party faithful, but also to reach the wider public and lay out plans for the future.

Blisters? Check! Achy limbs? Check! A combined 490,000 steps? Check!

Posted by Katie ElliottTagged , , , ,

And yet Stand lived to tell the tale! (Never underestimate the endurance and enthusiasm of Stand-ees).

Whilst the nation enjoyed a lazy Saturday morning lie in, Stand were up alive and kicking, aboard the 6.30am train from St Pancras – Bamford, Derbyshire. Why you may ask? To embark on the first-ever DofE Adventure Fundraising weekend, trekking a limb aching 25km in the Peak District!

At Stand, we’re all about practicing what we preach and this weekend saw the team donning their hiking boots and dusting off the sleeping bags in support of one of our clients, The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
