Last Friday, Wickedweb joined the world's largest coffee morning in support of Macmillan.  With the theme - bake or fake - we presented a table full of home baked cakes and shop bought goodies and collected donations throughout the day from the army of cake lovers.  We raised just over £60 in total.

Simon's banana and walnut cake stormed the event, closely followed by David's rum and chocolate torte. 

Evidence below to tempt you...

Triathlon 1

The brave duo - Wickedweb's Denis and Stuart - were up extra early on Saturday 25th September.  They were participating in the Hever Castle Sprint Triatlon, covering 400m open water swim, 20km cycle and 4km run.

Setting off in the 9am wave, trying to spot their orange swim hats in the water was like a live Where's Wally.  Quick out of the water, Stuart was the first of the two running uphill to the bike transition, and maintained his lead throughout the run with Denis only minutes behind.

Hever Castle and the grounds looked stunning in the early morning sun, but the wind chill was freezing so it was a relief for the chaps to cross the finishing line.  Results are out, and well done to our two triathletes who completed the course in a very honourable time:

Stuart - 1:22:44

Denis - 1:37:08

I will be on the competing side next year, I promise...

The Glass House

The Glass-House Community Led Design is a national charity working with community groups across the UK to promote a wider understanding and practice of community led design.  The organisation provides free project support and design training to community groups who are leading regeneration projects in their area.  This includes projects focused on local housing, public spaces, community buildings, play areas, facilities for young people or entire neighbourhoods.

With a website that is underperforming and inconsistent brand communication online and off, Wickedweb's brief is to develop the brand identity, presenting new brand guidelines that demonstrate a clear understanding of the complex range of services the charity offers to communities across the UK and the varied audience that The Glass-House needs to engage.  Refreshing and clarifying the brand  to provide a set of guiding principles will ensure clear communications and successful marketing campaigns long-term.

Wickedweb's next focus is to develop the charity's digital strategy and reflect the new branding online to raise awareness and the profile of The Glass-House amongst key audiences, generate interest and new clients for The Glass-House’s paid services and encourage online donations through the Just Giving link. In addition, Wickedweb will deliver key benefits to the organisation's administrators, including an intuitive content management system (The Glass-House will be using the WickedwebCMS platform), enchanced data collection mechanisms to grow the subscriber database, exciting feature functionality and a superior hosting solution for maximum uptime and quick loading.

Check back soon for news on the website launch and more information about the WickedwebCMS modules that will deliver an impressive user experience.

Macmillan Coffee Morning

We've joined the World's Biggest Coffee Morning on Friday 24th September to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. 

We're getting the kettle on for a cuppa, and donating money to Macmillan Cancer Support at the same time.  We've pledged to bake cakes, bring biscuits and collect money for the charity whilst I, having promised to make the tea round (no, really...!), dunk 27 tea bags in an effort to serve everybody at the same time.

Find out more about the World's Biggest Coffee Morning, put a smile on your mug and help raise money to improve the lives of those affected by cancer.

An all time favourite viral of mine has been the subservient chicken. The chicken who, as he rightly should, re-enacts the actions you type into the commands box.

Successive virals have tried to recreate this feature, however to a lesser affect.

Now, 2010 has been hit with a new kind of viral. One where the video content actually reaches out of the confines of the video frame to remove part of the video title.

Again this features the same command text box as the subservient chicken, but the associated clips are brilliant.

Try a few of these command words: eat, shoot, kiss

Well done Tipp Ex, top marks for your viral!
