If you’re anything like us, you’ll know that there’s never a USB drive to hand when you need one, although you’re sure you have one somewhere… on your desk, in your bag, maybe at home? To make sure we always have one to hand, we decided to make some of our own.
Produced in Michon colours, these 4GB USB drives give our team and our clients a safe place to store their files. And because they look so good, we like to think they’re less likely to get lost too!
If you don’t already have one, get in touch with your Account Manager and they’ll pop one in the post to you. Or, if you’re not already a client of ours, give us a call on 0115 933 1000 and we’ll see what we can do for you.
Now, the only question is, which colour do you go for…?
There’s been a lot going on for our 30 Good Things as the summer’s hotted up and this weekend sees some of our team kayaking 30 miles along the River Trent in aid of Cancer Research.
Rach, Cath, Tony, Andy B, Chris, Dan and Stu will all be setting off from Barton in Fabis on Saturday to arrive at the end of their trip in Newark on Sunday.
They’re hoping to raise £1500 in total but still have a way to go so if you’d like to support them please go to Kayak 30 Miles to make a donation and wish them luck.
Just to say ‘thank you’ to everyone who came along to the Epperstone summer festival last month. We can now tell you that we raised a whopping £7,418 for the charities involved! A good day was had by all, especially Daks the dog, a part-timer here at Michon – he swept up in the dog show at the Cross Keys pub! Proceeds from the festival will go to Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance, Rainbow’s Children Hospice and the Epperstone church.
They did it! Kate, Kim, Beth, Tony, Jeff and Ollie took on the staggering challenge of completing the three highest mountains in the UK – Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon. 600,000 steps walked, 11,000 feet climbed, 1,065 miles driven in a minibus, and countless jaffa cakes consumed all in just over 24 hours.
At 5pm on Friday they set off up Ben Nevis full of enthusiasm. By 11.30 they were done and you would think they’d be ready for a nightcap, but instead it was straight back in the minibus for the five-hour journey to Scafell Pike in the Lake District. At 5am they began the next ascent, finishing this leg in just four and a half hours. Then it was back in the minibus again for another five-hour journey to Snowdon to begin the third and final climb. They reached the final summit at 7.10pm, a little over 24 hours after starting the challenge. Jeff said, ‘it was a fantastic experience that pushed us all to our limits, the team really pulled together and supported each other through such a difficult challenge’.
We’re proud to say our intrepid explorers raised over £1,300 for Maggie’s Centre Nottingham, a lovely local charity very close to our hearts. And with a few more promises of donations yet to come, they’re hoping to reach their target of £1,500. The whole team will be popping in to Maggie’s soon to say hello and see the invaluable support the centre offers to people living with cancer.
They’d all like to say a big thank you to everyone that’s donated so far – the support has been incredible and they couldn’t have done it without everyone’s words of encouragement! The Just Giving page is still open for donations for a short while, so if you fancy showing your support please visit Michon Three Peaks and help them raise even more money for Maggie’s.
