Boxed Off goes Gung-Ho! with new client

Boxed Off is going Gung-Ho! to celebrate the agency’s second birthday.

Gung-Ho! is putting on three 5k races across the UK featuring a number of huge obstacles including Europe’s largest inflatable slide.

Boxed Off has developed a proactive PR campaign to raise the profile of the brand and each of the events.

It’s the idea of CBeebies presenter Alex Winters and kicks off later this month at Aintree racecourse, followed by events in Newcastle and Windsor.

Richard Clein, founding director of Liverpool based Boxed Off said:

“Getting Gung-Ho! on board shows how Boxed Off is itself continuing to bounce along and win new clients.

“It’s been another year of success getting quality coverage for Heritage Great Britain plc including the launch of the Shaun the Sheep Experience at Land’s End and a special carriage naming ceremony for Katherine Jenkins OBE at Snowdon Mountain Railway which both attracted national coverage.”

In May Boxed Off organised the ‘Holker Homecoming’ for Barrow AFC, following the football club’s promotion to the Vanarama National League.

Both BBC’s North West Tonight and Granada Reports were on hand to cover the event live and in the run-up to the new season Jamie Reid, director, Barrow AFC said:

“It’s no mean feat to get both major regional broadcasters up to Barrow and it was fabulous night to end a fabulous season. We are continuing to work with Boxed Off as the club targets a return to the football league.”

Richard Clein continues:

“Year on year the business has grown by 30% with a healthy pipeline of new business. The agency is currently recruiting as it embarks on the next phase of growth.”

Boxed Off can also count global logistics company Suttons, independent financial adviser Acumen Financial Partnership and charity Liverpool Lighthouse amongst its clients.

The agency has also launched a new website developed by Ident Creative. You can also follow on Facebook and Twitter @boxedoffcomms.
