Playing a Peaky Blinder!

Digital agency +24 Marketing transported the people of Burnley back to the roaring twenties at a Peaky Blinders themed event launching an ambitious fund-raising challenge for Pendleside Hospice.

Managing director David Walker, together with marketing manager Sam Keenan and head of creative Rik Holden, staged a dazzling night at The Palazzo restaurant in the town.

It was transformed into The Garrison, home of the ruthless Thomas Shelby, the main character in the hit BBC1 series. The 100 guests included the mayors of Burnley and Padiham.

Calling themselves the Three Peaky’s, David and his colleagues, based at Burnley’s new digital collaborative workspace The Landmark, are set to tackle the National Three Peaks challenge.

They are looking to climb to the summits of Ben Nevis, Scafell and Snowdon in 24 hours over the last weekend in June in a bid to raise £5,000 for the charity.

David said: “What a fantastic event to launch our challenge and the feedback has been incredible.

“We are delighted to have raised close to £3,000 on the night and to work with so many great people and businesses on this.

“Our entire team back at +24 really threw themselves into the Peaky Blinders theme, coming up with all kinds of creative ideas to help make the night such a great success.”
