Impact of winning Marler Haley’s competition This is Marler Haley’s fourth year running this competition to help charities to gain more funds and awareness for their cause through displays. We have already helped three amazing charities – Camp Nibble, Pop ‘N’ Grow, and most recently, the Orpheus Centre. The Orpheus Centre, which is an independent college for young disabled adults that specialises in the performing arts, won our competition in 2013. Jo Bega Head of Development at the Orpheus Centre told us that since winning, “We have been using the display materials as much as possible! They have travelled to football pitches, schools, colleges, magic shows, cake sales and rock gigs. This summer they will be even be camping at Redfest. They have been warmly received wherever they have been and the Orpheus message has been spread far and wide.” Having a reliable display that you’re proud to show is at the heart of what we do at Marler Haley. We’re pleased that Orpheus has been making good use of their display at multiple venues and that it’s still going strong to help them raise even greater awareness of their fantastic charity. We hope that many charities take advantage of our charity competition, and good luck if you are entering! Charity Survey Also, if you do work or volunteer for a charity, I’d greatly appreciate it if you could complete our short 5 minute survey on ROI from face to face marketing – we hope the results will help charities to determine which display equipment delivers the greatest ROI for different types of events.
