Ready Freddie Go Wins Marler Haley Charity Competition 2014

After two weeks of public voting, the winner of our annual charity competition with 65% of the vote is the Freddie Farmer Foundation!

Inspired by 10 year old Freddie Farmer who was born at 28 weeks with cerebral palsy, the charity was set up in 2011 to raise funds to set up a specialised physiotherapy centre in south-east London for children and young people with cerebral palsy and serious mobility problems.

Their prize for winning is £346 worth of Marler Haley vouchers to spend on new display stands.

Making a difference to Freddie Farmer Foundation

Speaking about the competition Anita Catchesides, charity officer at Freddie Farmer Foundation said: “Thank you all so much for voting for the Freddie Farmer Foundation.”

“Our faithful old banner stand has buckled under constant use and is no longer serviceable so this prize has come at just the right time.

“We entered the competition to win £346 worth of Marler Haley display vouchers to pay for a new exhibition stand and we were delighted to reach the final of the competition, and to subsequently win! Thanks so much for your support.

“We’ll use the new banner to promote the Freddie Farmer Foundation to the wider community, it’ll help raise awareness to help us support more young disabled children in the community.

“As soon as we get the new banner, we’ll share a picture of it on our Facebook page.”

Proud to support charities

Our charity competition has now been running for four years. Andrew Pocock, sales and marketing director at Marler Haley said “We’re very pleased to have announced the winners of our fourth annual charity competition as the Freddie Farmer Foundation.

“Our competition is a way of us celebrating charities to help further the work that they do. We understand the hard decisions that charities are often faced with when it comes to fundraising and marketing displays. Purchasing new displays when every penny can make a difference toward their core aims can be difficult.

“By supporting one charity a year to create great new displays without the cost, we can allow this difficult decision to be negated and allow them to make a real difference to their fundraising and awareness efforts.

“We’re so pleased to add the Freddie Farmer Foundation to our growing list of charity winners, joining previous winners of Camp Nibble, Pop ‘N’ Grow and Orpheus. Since winning, our previous victors have gone on to continue the great work they do with their displays still in action.

“As well as celebrating the victory of Freddie Farmer Foundation, we’d also like to thank the runners up of the competition who took the time and effort to enter – Womankind Worldwide and Winston’s Wish. As well as to everybody who voted for their winner – thank you!”
