2016 so far for GEM Inks

So I am writing this realising that we have just entered June and appear to be half way through 2016 without blinking.

We (that is a massive royal ‘we’ I must add!) promise that we will be bringing more up to date content throughout the coming months and not leaving it so long between posts!

2016 has so far seen us and our team of amazingly crazy friends take on the Royal Marines designed Born Survivor event in the Lake District.  If you have had chance to read our previous blog post you will know we did this for two amazing charities in Galloway’s Society for the Blind & Kidney Research UK.

We raised a grand total of £2742.50 which we are ridiculously proud of!  The day was tough, and in brutal cold conditions we all made it through and really pulled together as a team.  This is the second event we have entered on behalf of Galloway’s and I cant wait for their next task. If you have any thoughts for challenges tweet us using the hashtag #ChallengeGemInks we look forward to hearing your ideas!

Here is a challenge, see if you can spot me?

Going back to February we decided (very last minute!) to exhibit at a great local event ‘LoveLocalExpo‘ which was run by a very good friend Rachel from LoveLocalNetworking events.

We met some great people at this event, putting faces to existing customers names and meeting a few new ones along the way.

If you are a Lancashire business person and want to speak to someone who knows all about networking then Rachel is that person!

2016 has been a challenging yet exciting time, we have had highs and lows and negotiated them as best we could.  The one thing I do believe in is that hard work and dedication will bring results.  I am really looking forward to each day and its possibilities.
