What’s Floating Around Cloud 9? 30 April 2018

My Sight Nottingam

Welcome to another week and we are very excited to be working with a new client here at Cloud 9 Towers, My Sight Nottingham.

My Sight Nottinghamshire, formerly Nottinghamshire Royal Society for the Blind (NRSB), is the only charity dedicated exclusively to improving the lives of people living with sight loss in Nottinghamshire, and they provide support services, leisure opportunities, information and advice to thousands of local visually impaired people and their families – and there are so many inspiring stories. Celebrating their 175 Anniversary this year, we have an exciting schedule to put in place for this amazing charity and at this stage we are calling out for your help!

One of the plans we have is to launch an online Auction of 175 prizes and experiences – and – we know that many of our generous suppliers and clients will be stepping up to help.

So if you have anything that you feel would make a great addition to the auction, please do let us know – simply email paula@cloud9em.co.uk

In other news this coming week, we are also helping some of our clients and industry friends with their websites. It seems that Cloud 9 has become a bit of an expert in this area having developed sites for lots of events and news has clearly spread – so if anyone fancies a new website, we have a range of really inexpensive solutions all on hand.

Finally this week, Thursday will see World Press Freedom Day. This is a time to recognise the importance of free media around the globe and sometimes here in the UK we forget how lucky we are to live in such a democractic society. Held on the same date each year, the day celebrates the press and the role they play worldwide. The day also acts as a time to pay tribute to those who have lost their lives in the pursuit of journalism.

May 3rd was first declared World Press Freedom Day in 1991 by the United Nations. It now acts as a poignant reminder to people who take the freedom of the press for granted, while in countries around the world publications remain censored and journalists live in fear when reporting the truth.

Each year there is also a special theme for the day. In 2017 the day will focus on the theme of ‘Critical Minds for Critical Times: Medias role in advancing peaceful, just and inclusive societies’. With the focus on the need for free and quality journalism.

The day is now in its 27th year, and it is more important than ever to recognise the work of the media and that’s what the day is all about. So visit the World Press Freedom Day website and find out just what you can do to get involved.

Don’t forget our free venue finding service, and, have a great week – with the Bank Holiday looming, lets hope we have some sunny weather!
