On Thursday 17th January Theo headed up to a very sunny Manchester to meet the winners of the 2018 Many Hands finals, We are Gntlmen.
Back in October We are Gentlemen were crowned the winners of the 2018 Many Hands Campaign. The initiative sees businesses compete to raise a minimum of £1000 for the charity in 6 months. Over the years Theo has been witness to all sorts of wonderful ideas and this year the competition was as fierce as ever.
For the campaign, We are Gntlmen created an exclusive shirt called the ‘Humphrey’ shirt. It was a white Oxford shirt with brand logo and the Many Hands charity mascot, ‘Humphrey’ embroidered onto the cuff. The shirt was sold for £40 and all the proceeds went towards their total. To add a bit of showbiz to their campaign they enlisted the help of singer songwriter Frank Turner, who backed the campaign and helped to raise awareness.
Theo visited the offices in Manchester, where they chatted through the different shirts and their inspiration for their campaign, the Humphrey bear. They even discussed an exciting plans for the business, launching soon.
It was a fantastic way to end Theo’s support for the campaign which has seen him judge 10 years worth of pitches and seen 180 businesses raise money for the charity.
