BRIGHTBULB’S MINCE PIE MARATHON RETURNS THIS DECEMBER

Brightbulb Design’s Mince Pie Marathon, which last year raised over £3,000 for charity, is returning bigger and better for 2020.

At the end of 2019, mince pie fever hit businesses on the Island with Brightbulb’s marathon fundraiser. The Island design studio sold and delivered over 3,000 mince pies, helping to raise a total of £3,100 for the Wight Brainy Bunch charity – a charity supporting families affected by brain tumours on the Isle of Wight.

This year the event has been opened to both businesses and the general public. Brightbulb has also drafted in the help of the Island’s fastest broadband provider, WightFibre, to help deliver the mince pies across the Island.

Matt Jeffery of Brightbulb Design has said:

“It’s been a tough since last year’s Mince Pie Marathon because of the COVID pandemic. But last year there was so much excitement, fun and cheer from what we achieved that we thought, let’s do it again and if we make a few people smile, then we can deem it a success.”

John Irvine, CEO of WightFibre, adds:

“We are really looking forward to being involved in the Mince Pie Marathon this year. It’s an innovative charity initiative that makes people happy. What’s not to like. Last year we bought mince pies. This year we can help Brightbulb deliver even more cheer across the Island.”

To take part simply log on to www.mincepiemarathon.co.uk and choose how many boxes of mince pies you want to be delivered and the team will take care of the rest.

no – this needs cancelling – handing out food to people like this, increases the risk of covid, it also means unnecessarily putting people at risk by making unnecessary journeys to places – if businesses cannot open due to covid, then this type of charity sponging should stop also

how about no – people are being made to wear masks, told to stay indoors, having their incomes trashed, their liberties stamped all over and charities expect to be able to continue sponging – no either all restrictions are off, or charity stuff stops completely.

And let’s face it, this is nothing to do with charity, it’s just a free advertising campaign for a company. Simple as.
