As another working week draws to a close and everyone looks forward to another typical wet August weekend, we (as in the Royal we), reflect on the weekly stories behind the Connect PR headlines.

Thanks to Sue’s brush with The Queen last week we’ve all been practising our bows and curtsying, albeit with limited success.

Despite the gloomy weather the team has brightened up the lives of people and businesses across the UK.

As the team ventured far and wide for clients, Lee launched a search for images from young explorers to populate a charity calendar for Goodyear’s safety partnership with Mountain Rescue England and Wales.

The twelve chosen pictures will win an explorers pack featuring a pair of binoculars, mini first aid kit, compass and torch as well as a copy of the 2011 calendar. One overall winner will win a family (two adults) National Trust annual membership package.

Meanwhile Ben announced he was looking for Johnstone’s Paint Trophy’s best dribblers, which prompted Connect PR’s resident football pundit, Zoe, to throw forward a number of League One and Two players for the award.

The misunderstanding was soon cleared up as Ben explained it was second annual ‘Trophy Tot’ award in a bid to find the cutest young fan in this season’s competition.
Following the hugely successful launch of the 2009 award, Johnstone’s are replaying the initiative and it has already been featured on football websites across the land.

Becki's been working wonders with Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, organising lots of regional competitions and flooding the country with coverage.

So read your regional and local press for details on how to win VIP tickets to a race track near you.

Finally, just so everyone can be prepared, with Christmas just around the corner (127 days to go!) Lizzie has presented Uniball with the perfect gift. Creator of cute things, Carrie Lewis, has agreed to produce some festive items to support their Christmas promotion.

Carrie will be using POSCA marker pens and the Signo range to design greetings cards, crackers, baubles and table settings.

Look out for the range in stores near you soon!

Have a good weekend, if you can stay dry. I'm off to water my garden now the hosepipe ban has been lifted...
