We were delighted to be invited to work with Rape Crisis Scotland on their Equally Safe at School project which officially launches today.
Equally Safe at School has been developed for secondary schools to help them take a whole school approach to preventing gender-based violence, with staff and students working together with a shared understanding and commitment to equality and safety for all. It's a project which is very close to our hearts.
ESAS was developed by Rape Crisis Scotland and Glasgow University. It was designed and piloted in several schools in Scotland with support from Zero Tolerance and a wide range of other voluntary and statutory partners and stakeholders.
We first worked with the sporting memories project when we were asked to create them a website many years ago. The organisation started with football and then began adding different sports and there are now 14 different categories to choose from.
The idea behind Replay Sporting Memories is to tackle dementia, depression and loneliness through the power of sport.
Many people have a favourite sport and memories around particular sports or clubs or events may spark engagement with other people and allow a conversation to start or experiences to be relived.
It's been a few years since we worked with Deborah and Steve Macken on a website for their stunning holiday cottages at East Cambusmoon in the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. The holidays are really luxurious and eco-friendly in the most beautiful setting - would definitely recommend having a look if you fancy a staycation or follow them on instagram or facebook to keep up-to-date.
We were delighted to be invited back to develop a website for their other business, Lomond Energy - an independent onshore wind farm company based in rural central Scotland. Unfortunately Covid stopped us visiting this time but the advantage of our business is everything can be taken care of online.
We always love to work with charities supporting good causes and we were delighted to be invited to work with Aura, an inclusive domestic abuse support service in North Lanarkshire.
Support is available regardless of age, gender identity, sexual orientation or ethnic/religious background.
In deepest darkest lockdown 2 - or was it 3 - we were in desperate need of a night out with friends but had absolutely nowhere to go. Even the real struggle to get a taxi home from Christmas nights out was beginning to feel nostalgic. We were all Zoomed out with no end in sight.
We eventually accepted our fate and enlisted Guy Chatfield to host a tutored wine tasting for us. And it was the best decision we could ever have made.
