Supporting Wessex Cancer Trust

Ferndown Business Network is delighted to announce that it has supported FBN Member Wessex Cancer Trust by making a donation of £1000 as part of the Wessex Cancer Trust crisis appeal. 

Wessex Cancer Trust believes that there should be help and support available to everyone living with cancer, when and where they need it.  Every year around 23,000 people are diagnosed with cancer within the Wessex region. A diagnosis can be a shock and have a huge impact on an entire family. Wessex Cancer Trust helps and supports anyone affected by cancer regardless of age, gender or type of cancer.  

Maria Tidy from Wessex Cancer said: “ I’d like to say a massive thank you to Ferndown Business Network for their donation to Wessex Cancer Trust Crisis Appeal. We really are truly grateful for your help and support.”

Richard Morris, Ferndown Business Network Chairman and owner of Signs Express Bournemouth said: “We are delighted to continually support Wessex Cancer Trust.  Wessex Cancer Trust and specifically Maria Tidy from the charity is a major reason FBN is so successful.   As such we are always looking for new ways to support the charity and its fundraising initiatives including our recently announced new donation of £1 per member per month.”

The next time FBN will be supporting Wessex Cancer Trust is at their big fundraising event at Castlepoint on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th January.  Wessex Cancer Trust needs to raise £600,000 by the end of January 2020 or they risk losing their support centres. So they are asking you to save your £1 coins over the next couple of weeks and bring them to Castlepoint Shopping Park on Saturday 25th or Sunday 26th January to add to their  “Line of Gold”.  If they can fill the line from Asda to Sainsburys in one day they could raise £22,500 and they are going to try to do it twice.

Signs Express Bournemouth link with local businesses

Industry professionals and local business owners gathered yesterday evening for the Digital Décor Opportunity workshop, hosted by Richard Morris, Managing Director of Signs Express Bournemouth.The evening explored the revolution of bringing digital art, which was until recently only available online and in galleries, into the liveable space.

An insight to the endless opportunities around us kickstarted the evening, before attendees enjoyed a live demonstration and showcase of the technology available in branch, taking away their very own bespoke artwork printed onto specialist substrates.

The atmosphere on the evening was one of a keen desire for knowledge from an enthusiastic and interactive audience. Overall the workshop was a success with much positive feedback having been received from the audience. Deborah Jones, of Deborah Jones Design Ltd said:

‘I have nothing but praise for Richard in the visionary approach to both his products and the service he offers. He has taken time to reflect, consider and really examine his offering in order to elevate it above his market at large. He is looking to see what will give his business the edge in light of what is a saturated market. He has invested both in his people and his technology to ensure he is delivering the best product possible to his customers whilst also caring about their customer journey and experience. Last nights workshop still further demonstrated Richard’s obvious passion and commitment to his business. I very much look forward to working with this innovate company in the future on some of my interior design projects.” Deborah JonesDeborah Jones Design Ltd

Based on the success of this first training workshop, plans are currently underway to host another event at our unit based in Christchurch.

Richard Morris comments,

We are very pleased and inspired by the enthusiasm shown at our first event. We are passionate about bringing art lovers, interior designers and technology together to create and enjoy the new art forms of tomorrow. Digital printing means wallpaper can be whatever you want it to be, and to take tradition into the future is a very exciting time
