NEWS UPDATE SPRING EDITION Welcome to the Spring edition of our newsletter After recently experiencing a lockdown It has been a busy few months here Birthday, along with almost everyone at Kazzoo, as usual, with new clients else in the country, I am pleased to see on board, an Intern placement and us slowly starting to come out of this, on recruitment to the team. the other side. Let’s hope that the future continues to remain bright. Further details to follow soon! Charity News Easter Egg Run At the end of February, myself and Jenny Cross of Cross Productions, launched our annual Charity Easter Egg Run, asking local businesses to support and donate towards the cost of eggs for those children who may not be getting one this Easter, for one reason or another. We then distribute them to as many local charities as we can, to spread a bit of happiness to the kids. We were absolutely blown away by the support that we received and, in the end, we delivered over 1000 eggs to our friends at Focus, Menphys, Wesley Hall Community Centre, Generation Youth, Oadby Food Bank, Enderby Food Bank, Enstruct, YMCA, Zynthia Trust, Soft Touch Arts and Help the Homeless, for them to distribute amongst the kids that they work with. A huge thank you to everyone that contributed either with cash, eggs, and their time buying and delivering the eggs. We are so very grateful for your support. 0844 372 9893 • • [email protected]

Charity News Kazzoo support Leicestershire Women’s Centre The Shama Women’s Centre were looking for local businesses to become corporate business ambassadors of Shama Women’s Centre by pledging £1,000.00 in 2020. We were proud to be able to be a part of this initiative at the end of last year. Shama Women’s Centre is a unique centre of support to women in Leicester and Leicestershire. We have been delivering a wide range of holistic services for the past 35 years and are one of a very few dedicated spaces left around the country where women from all walks of life can safely express themselves and access support in a culturally conducive environment. We have continued the vital support around mental health, education and employment, childrens’ services and domestic violence referrals throughout the lockdown thanks to our fantastic management and staff teams, as well as our wonderfully dedicated volunteers. Our new mental health programme for people who are struggling with work (at home or out and about) and we look forward to sharing these essential resources with you soon.

Charity News Darren Bradbury’s Menphys Challenge During a quiet period shortly before Christmas, my good friend Darren Bradbury decided to put himself to good use and help local charity Menphys by delivering some Christmas presents for children with disabilities. The charity has helped thousands of families and their children over the years with the fantastic work it does and celebrated it’s 50th birthday in 2020, but with celebrations being fairly muted due to the current pandemic, Darren decided he wanted to do something and raise some money to show his appreciation for the amazing work they do. After a lot of deliberation, this came in the form of a two-part challenge that started on 18th January 2021 and will run until July 2nd 2021. In this time Darren will be either running, cycling or rowing at least 3 miles every day, 7 days a week. The challenge will then culminate in a wolf run on 3 July 2021 (this is a 10K run with manmade and natural obstacles that include lake swims and mud pits etc). So far Darren has raised over £6,000.00 for this amazing charity. With such a long way to go to the end of this mammoth 167-day challenge, Darren wants to raise as much money as he possibly can and still needs all the support he can get, so if you would like to donate please see his Just Giving Page below. Anything you can give is very much appreciated. We even got him a t-shirt! Kazzoo Golf Day On Friday, 1 October, we will be holding our very first Kazzoo Golf Day at Ramsdale Golf Course, in Nottingham, to raise funds for Hope Against Cancer. As the courses have reopened in the last week or so, I know those golfers amongst you will be keen to get back out there. What better way to catch up with your business contacts that you haven’t seen for quite some time, brush up on your golf and raise money for a fantastic charity at the same time! If you would like to enter a team, or talk to us about sponsorship opportunities please send us an email to [email protected] and Jo will be in touch. 0844 372 9893 • • [email protected]

Business News Kazzoo and DMU Graduate Champions Programme From 8th February to 19th March, we had the pleasure of hosting Karn Singh as an Intern through the DMU Graduate Champions Programme. Karn has been giving our social media a review and overhaul and has been busy creating and scheduling posts over the two platforms that we have not made much use of in the past, Instagram and Facebook. As well as this he has been helping us gain more connections and followers, something we all need in business. Due to the current restrictions, it has all had to be done virtually but Karn has been ready and willing to take on board anything that we have asked him to do and kept us updated on a daily basis. It has been a pleasure to have Karn join the Kazzoo team and myself and Jo have enjoyed being able to show him a little of the networking side to business too, with him attending an event with each of us. This was something he really enjoyed and had no knowledge of prior to his time with us. A few weeks ago we said goodbye and ‘Thank You’ to Karn as he will be continuing his search for a position to further his career in the business world. “In the last 6 weeks, I have really learnt the importance of social media for business. I have researched and understood what type of posts businesses require and need. Also, I have gained first-hand experience in what it’s like to research and create posts for a social media platform for a business that I had no knowledge of beforehand. In addition, the Network Blaby and BNI meetings gave me fantastic insight and experience into the real business world. In the future, the ideal job or experience that I would like to have is HR related, analytics or business consultant experiences. I am happy to reach out of my boundaries and try new experiences.” Karn Singh 0844 372 9893 • • [email protected]
