Live Your Life Weekend
25 Jul 2017
You’re invited to join Live Your Life Weekend in partnership with Beds and Bars and Team Margot
Friday 27th July - Sunday 29h July
Hostel and bar-operator Beds and Bars led by CEO Keith Knowles is proud to announce that its upcoming annual charity event, Live Your Life, will be taking place this July, and for the first time ever it falls across a whole weekend Friday 28th July - Sunday 30th July.
The chosen charity for Live Your Life Weekend is once again The Team Margot Foundation, a charity that aims to raise awareness for the vital need of bone marrow donors to help save lives on those suffering with illnesses such as blood cancer.
The prime aim of the Live Your Life campaign is to drive more sign-ups of potential marrow/stem cell donors in a fun, engaging way. Together we, along with our employees and our customers, can each help make a lifesaving difference for someone with blood cancer, by doing something as simple as joining the register.
To support Team Margot, venues across Europe including Belushi’s and St Christopher’s Inns will be hosting fun, in-house summer parties and events over the Live Your Life Weekend such as beer pong, full moon parties and live music. We are inviting you to join us in celebrating, wherever you may be - and with a feature of theme and style that’s entirely up to you. It’s bound to be a memorable one. If you would like to take part in the event - you can find the full brief and assets here.
This year, a main aspect of the campaign is a photo competition to raise awareness for the cause. The prize is a trip to Amsterdam/Barcelona (all inclusive) for the best photo shared with us from the day via email (LiveYourLife@teammargot.com) and on Instagram using the hashtag: #LiveYourLife17. All the photographs will be included in a montage, to be displayed in a Team Margot photographic exhibition at City Hall later this year, so spread the word.
The Team Margot Foundation aims to increase the number of potential bone marrow donors in the UK by encouraging 2.2 million people to sign up by this time next year: they need 900k more to achieve this so let’s help make this happen.
Thank you for taking the time to consider this invitation and for all your support to date. We hope you will join us to honour the passing of our loved ones, to celebrate life with our families and to raise awareness for such an important cause that’s close to our hearts here at Beds and Bars.
Don’t forget to show your support by sharing all related photos on social media using the hashtag #LIVEYOURLIFE17. We want to inspire as many people as possible, from all corners of the world, to register as a potential stem cell/bone marrow donor.
