Shellybobbins invites Theo Paphitis #SBS winner Lock-Loop to share his fabulous news !!

Just a short note reference the Small business Sunday #SBS that is run by Theo Paphitis I was taking note of what Theo has said over the past years of watching him on TV and my new product lock-Loop need to be out there in the public eyes, as it was all very well to have a great product just sitting on my shelf fro me to admire but wouldn’t earn me any money!!

I had decided to advertise the most cost effective way via social media and on the third week of trying I got Theo to RT my tweet and my world went mad.

This for some reason (I think many other people who have won this recognition for such a businessman) it gave me massive pride and a new belief in myself and my product.
Since then I have got the Lock-Loop on the Halfords web site and is due to go on the shelves at the end of September, I have had very serious discussions and visited a very large German lock manufacture (unfortunately couldn’t agree on terms) am in talks with people in USA, China, SouthAfrica New Zealand and many other countries.

As you can see I have been very busy and in fact to busy to write this Blog for one of my best supporters ©Shellybobbins™ that I have promised her for many a week.

Over 4 years ago I designed a product call the Cool Laptop Stand www.coollaptopstand.co.uk of which I have sold over 60,000 of them but at the start of its life there was no social media and I had to do it all the hard way going to see companies etc. I only said to my wife the other day that I recon we could have sold 60,000 in the first year if Twitter etc had been around then, so come on everybody if you have an idea just try it you never now unless you try.

So my thanks go out to Theo Paphitis, Shelly and all my followers (always looking for more check out my web site www.Lock-Loop.co.uk )

TODAY :- My friend murry from Lock-Loop has just tweeted this !!


VERY PROUD Theo Paphitis #SBS Winner !!!!

How fabulous to see your product on Halfords shelves !!! YIPHEE

I had to share you story today of all days & share your amazing news

thank you murry good luck in the future & thank you for being a guest on Shellybobbins blog

Royal Manchester Children's Hospital & Waterloo Road Stars Supported by Ryman

 Waterloo Road Stars Have Been Seen in Green

Waterloo Road stars Jason Done, Rebecca Ryan and George Sampson are backing Be Seen In Green Day in support of Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital charity.

The stars donned green wigs to launch Ryman’s Be Seen in Green Day, which is a fundraiser for schools that takes place on 4th November and asks pupils to make a small donation to the charity in return for being able to wear something green to school.

Schools that register for the event sponsored by Ryman before 14th October will be entered into an exclusive prize draw in which four winning schools will be visited by the cast members of Waterloo Road, who will take part in a question and answer session. Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital charity patron Jason Done said, “Be Seen in Green is a great way for school children to get involved with the charity. I’m sure the children will have lots of fun finding green clothes to wear like a sock or bobble, some may even want to put on a silly green wig like us!” Charity Chairman, Maurice Watkins said “I hope a lot of schools sign up for our event. For just a small donation schoolchildren can have lots of fun while making a big difference to the lives of the young patients at the hospital.”
Be Seen in Green is being supported by Ryman, the UK’s leading specialist stationery and office supplies company, whose chairman is Theo Paphitis, star of BBC’s Dragon Den.

To register your school for the event please call the charity office on 0161 276 4522 or visit http://www.rmchcharity.org.uk/event/86/be-seen-in-green-.php  
For more information on Ryman please visit www.ryman.co.uk
One event we have is called Ryman’s Be Seen in Green day which asks schools to support the charity by either allowing pupils to wear something green or non uniform on 4 November 2011.  The event is sponsored by Ryman and schools that sign up will be entered into a draw to win a visit from stars of BBC drama Waterloo Road .  Four schools will receive a flying visit (stars normally land at the schools by helicopter) and the stars will take part in a question and answer session with pupils.

All schools that register will also be entered into a second prize draw to win £250 of stationery from Ryman.   I have attached the press release and image that has been issued about the event and the event is on our website and schools can register online - http://www.rmchcharity.org.uk/event/86/be-seen-in-green-.php

The second event is called Pyjama Day, which this year takes place on 26 October asking nurseries, crèches and play groups to wear their pyjamas in exchange for a donation.  Every nursery that registers to join in could win a bumper goody pack from Ryman, a Pyjama Drama session and a visit to their nursery from a very special guest simply by getting involved in PJ Day.
PJ Day is a simple way for nurseries, crèches and play groups across the North West to help us to raise vital funds, that this year will go towards the cost of clown doctors, who help to distract our poorly patients.
For every child that wears their pyjama, a suggested donation of £1 is made by the child's family and friends.
Those that register before the 7 October 2011 will be entered into a free prize draw to win:
  • A bumper pack of goodies courtesy of Ryman, which includes adorable pyjama bears.
  • A Pyjama Drama session at a later date.
  • A visit to your nursery from a very special guest on 26 October.
All organisations and groups that register, regardless of date will receive a free PJ Day pack.  Organisations can download a registration form from our website at http://www.rmchcharity.org.uk/event/87/pj-day.php
