Highlights from 2018
In January we selected our chosen charities for 2018 which were: The Elizabeth Foundation, The Rosemary Foundation, HART Wildlife Rescue and RNLI Lifeboats. It’s been great to share the latest news from these amazing charities across Hampshire, and to do our bit to raise awareness.
We donated over 50 Easter eggs to Southern Energy Training & Assessment Ltd who passed these on to local food banks for families in need.
On the 3rd April we celebrated The Directory Group being in business and helping to promote local business for 13 years!
In May we celebrated the 2nd anniversary of our sister publication Beautiful South Magazine! In this edition, we interviewed Dame Esther Rantzen DBE had two exciting competitions to commemorate two years of the lifestyle magazine you all love!
In July we got feedback about our directories from our lovely readers to make sure we continue to produce a great local magazine!
Our loveable office dog Barney celebrated his 6th birthday, which is 40 in dog years!
In October we did our bit for Breast Cancel Awareness month, and took part in Wear It Pink day! Everyone in the office donated £5 towards this cause, and we all sat down for a delicious soup lunch.
The TDG and Beautiful South marketing team enjoyed a relaxing press day at the Ageas Bowl Eforea Spa, and had a luxurious day enjoying the spa facilities and treatments.
Christmas cheer took over the TDG office throughout December, and the team were all hands on deck to make sure our January Directories and Beautiful South January/February got to the printers ready for distribution in 2019! We also took Reverse Advent Calendar donations once again, and thanks to your generosity we had over 50 boxes which were donated to food banks across Hampshire.
