‘Do Your Food Friday Thing’ for BBC Children in Need

‘Do Your Food Friday Thing’ for BBC Children in Need

In October, Marsha Ramroop from BBC Radio Leicester contacted us to talk about an idea to publish a recipe book to raise funds for BBC Children in Need.

They had 50 recipes, from local home-cooks, accumulated during four years of producing and broadcasting a weekly cookery slot called ‘Food Friday’ on Ben Jackson’s mid-morning show.

Could these recipes, along with photos of varying quality, be somehow transformed into a shiny, printed recipe book… in little over three weeks?!
Remarkably the answer was yes.

BBC Children in Need were delighted with the draft design, and in particular our flair and interpretation of their brand marketing style guidelines. Radio Leicester were equally ecstatic and so it was all systems go.

Down to the hardwork and creativity of the Tudor Rose team, alongside the wonderful folk at Radio Leicester, 2,000 copies of this beautiful recipe book were delivered in time for BBC Children in Need day on Friday 17 November.

A wonderful project which we are pleased to have been able to execute in rapid time and contribute a valuable donation that will hopefully benefit children who need it most.

Happy cooking!

Taking a trip with BC Ferries

Taking a trip with BC Ferries

This July, our designer Libby was invited to join BC Ferries onboard Queen of New Westerminster she crossed from Tsawwassen in Vancouver to Swartz Bay in Victoria. On her return journey, Libby was lucky enough to join the captain for a bridge tour onboard Spirit of Vancouver Island and learn some of the secrets of the trade.

According to Libby, it’s easy to see why BC Ferries’ crew say they have the best offices in the world – they are surrounded by stunning views and they regularly spot whales, porpoises, seals, eagles and other wildlife from the bridge. Meanwhile, the tasty food, comfortable seating and friendly staff make for a great passenger experience.

We look forward to sailing with BC Ferries again soon!

Playing golf from dawn ‘til dusk

Playing golf from dawn ‘til dusk

While most of us were still in bed at 4.30am on Friday, two members of the Tudor Rose team were up at the crack of dawn ready to play a full four rounds of golf (that’s 72 holes) to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Read more...

Benedict Pask and Christian Jones headed to Glen Gorse Golf Club in Leicestershire to take on the almighty challenge, which saw them walking and pushing a trolley over 22 miles, taking around 400 shots each and swinging their golf clubs over a thousand times as they aimed to complete the course a total of four times.

Sixteen hours later and the pair successfully played their final shots before heading to the clubhouse for a well-deserved pint or two. Sadly no holes in one, but they did smash their fundraising target. Well done guys!
