Toolkit Websites’ Jack Manley skydives for charity

Jack Manley, Toolkit Websites’ Sales Executive is skydiving on the 5th June to raise money for The Rainbow Centre for Conductive Education Ltd in Hampshire. (Charity Registration No. 1096603)

Jack has previously thrown himself from a plane in the name of charity, raising money for children's cancer charity CLIC Sargent in 2007, Jack was only 16 – the youngest skydiver in the group.

He is now repeating this terrifying feat for a really fantastic cause:

"At The Rainbow Centre we help children with Cerebral Palsy and adults with Parkinson's, MS and those recovering from a stroke learn to overcome their motor impairments through a system of learning called conductive education. It costs £45,000 a month to run The Centre where we currently help over 60 amazing children and 25 inspirational adults from all over the south of the UK."

The Rainbow Centre was established in 1990, and offers Conductive Education services to aid children with disabilities which cause delays in development such as Cerebral Palsy.
The centre also helps motor-impaired adults to gain mobility and independence. The charity relies solely on donations and receives no other financial support, raising money is the only way The Rainbow Centre can continue its amazing work. However, they require £400,000 a year to operate, so fund raisers like Jack are essential to the continuity of the charity.

Jacks target is £250.00 help him meet this by donating here at justgiving.com.

Facebook launches new Deals application

We all like to get a good deal, and finding one may just have got easier. Facebook has announced a new application called ‘Deals’, allowing brands to offer promotions directly to customers through the Facebook site.
Users who ‘check in’ to locations using the mobile version of the social network can see all the local businesses nearby offering a deal. This can range from discounts to free merchandise, loyalty schemes to meal deals.
Imagine that while looking for a place to eat lunch, you could see offers from restaurants nearby on your phone. Or you’re after a new wardrobe; the application could tell you all the shops offering discounts! It’s the ideal tool to get customers in through your doors.
Big names such as Starbucks, O2 and YO! Sushi have already signed up meaning Facebook Deals is an application worth embracing for any business owner. Perhaps your customers could be missing out on your latest deal because it’s not on Facebook Deals? Maybe your clients are just waiting for your merchandise to appear on their phone!
It all sounds very promising, and with Foursquare and Google offering similar services this is a competitive market already. So potentially this could be great for companies and customers alike!

We can help you get your business on Facebook. Get in Touch!
