Our account manager Tamsin Robinson has had all her hair chopped off for charity!

Tamsin wanted to ‘go grey’ gracefully and decided to step out of her comfort zone on her 45th Birthday and have it all shaved off. She says: “I’m excited about this hair liberation, but it’s taken courage so I’m raising money for charity at the same time.”

Her chosen charity is Womankind Worldwide which is working to change the discrimination, poverty and violence that some women and girls are facing every day just because they are female. Tamsin says: “These women have so much more to worry about than the colour of their hair.”

Every penny donated on BT MyDonate goes to the charity and you can still donate here.

Reach Timelapse was featured on BBC’s The One Show

Reach Timelapse is a leading provider of construction timelapse services for mid to long-term construction and civil engineering projects across the UK.

We recently installed a timelapse camera to film the construction of  a major new 52 metre bridge in South Wales, which was then installed overnight over the London to South Wales railway line, in Slough. Our camera was installed on top of an adjacent car park, which gave us the ideal position to view the full construction area.

For long term timelapse projects, Reach Digital are also on hand to create a bespoke and responsive online viewing portal. This enables our clients and their customers to watch the project develop in real time. The portal is branded to match the client’s logo and colour scheme, and furthermore can be embedded within the client’s own website.

A poster campaign has been launched to get people behind Leicester’s bid to become the next UK City of Culture . The poster, which has the strapline “It’s our time to shine”, was unveiled outside the city council’s offices yesterday by city mayor Sir Peter Soulsby.

He said: “We’ve pledged to come up with a programme of events for 2017 that’s simply dazzling. But we’re not investing all this energy and money into a flash of activity that lasts for 12 months.”   The campaign is part of a final push to get people to show their support for the bid.

Leicester must hand in a detailed report on its bid to the Department for Culture, Media and Sport at the end of this month.   We are up against Hull, Swansea Bay and Dundee on a shortlist for the title.   People are being urged to show their commitment to the bid by signing books provided by the council or through social media.

The poster has been designed by agency Reach and features three of its employees, Reema Patel, Leon Jackson and Maggie Goodman.

Maggie said: “Winning the UK City of Culture title would be brilliant for Leicester because it would give us an opportunity to show the world what a creative and cosmopolitan city we are.”

Shops, businesses and schools are being encouraged to print off their own copies.

The city council is proposing to underwrite £10million for the cost of the artistic programme over the four years from 2014/15 to 2017/18, plus an extra £2million to cover the associated costs of delivering it, if Leicester wins the title.

Arts Council England has confirmed in principle to commit £3 million to the artistic events programme. The city’s two universities are discussing the possibility of becoming event sponsors, with further sponsorship expected from local businesses.

Celebrity backers of Leicester’s City of Culture bid include Lord Attenborough, author Bali Rai and Adrian Mole creator Sue Townsend.

We have been appointed to design Leicester’s bid brochure to become the UK City of Culture 2017

Our team have set to work immediately on designing the city’s final bid document, which must be sent to the Department for Culture, Media and Sport by the end of September.

Working alongside Leicester’s UK City of Culture team our role is to bring Leicester’s bid and our creative theme of ‘Illuminating Culture’ to life, ensuring it outshines the city’s competitors and with detailed plans for the events and activities that could take place during 2017.

Asgoo Pirbhai, Managing Director of Reach Marketing said: “We’re really proud to be involved in Leicester’s bid to be UK City of Culture in 2017.

“We were always backing the bid and now we’re thrilled to be part of the team that’s going to deliver it. As a communications business based in Leicester for the last 20 years, we have been involved in developing many initiatives in the environment, the arts and business that have positioned Leicester as a leader in the UK and beyond.

Winning this bid will enhance the cultural presence that Leicester has on the national stage.”

David Simms, Publisher, Leicester Mercury and City of Culture board member, said: “We are delighted that a local Leicester design agency has been appointed to design the city’s bid brochure to become the UK’s next City of Culture.

“During the appointment process we were impressed by Reach’s innovative approach to the brief and also the company’s deep commitment to their city and its goal to become City of Culture.

“We’re very excited to be working with them on our final submission over the coming weeks.”

Leicester will find out whether its bid has been successful in November. Dundee, Hull and Swansea Bay are the other three cities still in the running for the coveted title.

Look out for our ‘Illuminating Culture’ posters around the city soon!
