Hot on the heels of our Gambella refugee project of 2019 I am delighted to announce that in 2020 Jellybean is supporting a new initiative for educating adolescent girls in Zimbabwe. Plan International’s project aims to give 21,780 of the most marginalised girls, in one of the world’s poorest countries, the chance to advance their education and go on to earn a fair wage and make a safe living.
We can talk the talk but can we walk the walk? An evening in the kitchen with the Beans…
Anyone who knows or knows of Jellybean, knows that we can most certainly boss our way through the marketing and PR of any food brand… But can we cook?
On Friday 11th January, as a late Christmas celebration, the Beans ventured to The Underground Cookery School in Old Street.
Jellybean is proud to be the PR partner to the Quality Food Awards, supporting the prestigious awards programme with social media management, throughout key judging days and managing its press office throughout the campaign year. It was with absolute delight that we got to spend the evening, last Friday, at The Brewery, London, amongst the great and the good of the food and drink industry to celebrate the awards 40th anniversary, none more special to us than our lovely clients, two of whom were shortlisted for an award!
As a leading foodservice agency, we have long been supporters of the great work Hospitality Action does. And as Christmas is of course a time for giving, we jumped at the chance to celebrate the arrival of the festive season and at the same time give back, at a time of year when those less fortunate often feel it the most. So it was glad rags on and off we headed to London’s Chino Latino within the Park Plaza London Riverbank for the Hospitality Action Christmas Fundraising Dinner.
The recent Extinction Rebellion protests have focused our minds on a global problem and if I have learnt one thing from them it is that “We can choose to be affected by the world or we can choose to affect the world.” Heidi Wills. The XR cause is undoubtedly a worthy one and critical to the future of our planet and I am not here to challenge the essence of their goal or to speculate on their questionable (and sometimes hypocritical) methods, but rather to reflect on another critical world problem that is deserving of the same level of attention – child poverty.
