It’s official, BIDBI has been struck with Christmas Fever!

Symptoms are not limited to but may include:
Excessive talk of a potential White Christmas
Tendency towards humming Christmas songs
Wearing of Christmas jumpers

Treatment:
Lots of Mulled Wine (warm cider may be an alternative)

We’ve been feeling very inspired by some of the designs our customers have had for their Christmas and Winter bag styles – the girls in the office have become smitten with Bertie penguin, a bag we printed for Oliver Bonas (available exclusively at www.oliverbonas.com)

As Christmas is about the act of giving, our Charity Committee came up with some fun fundraising activities for local organisation Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity: http://www.wphcancercharity.org.uk/

Weston Park is one of only four dedicated cancer hospitals in England and is a charity close to the hearts of many staff members working here at BIDBI. The money raised will go towards all aspects of cancer research, treatment and care.

We have organised two fundraisers – a raffle and a ‘Who’s that Baby?’ competition. The latter went down very well with the whole team getting involved and bringing in photos of their younger selves (something that brought a wave of chuckles across the business). Can you guess who these two bonnie babies are?

We are committed to raising more money throughout 2015 so watch this space!

As well as charity ideas, BIDBI has many exciting plans for the New Year - with an ever growing team and new plans to expand our product range - we’ll be thrilled to share our news with you throughout the year.

All that’s left to say is Merry Christmas from everyone here at BIDBI and let’s bring in the New Year!

We will be staying at home and enjoy the holiday season from Wednesday 24 December 2014 and will see you next year on Friday 2 January!
