In celebration of Father’s Day, all-new UK-based brand Daditude is launching to help consumers celebrate the father figures in their lives by offering them a truly unique and personalised collection of gifts. Acting as the one-stop-shop for dads, Daditude has been created to provide a wide range of bespoke items for that special someone, including items for camping and BBQs alongside stunning whisky tumblers and grooming products.

With Father’s Day being a time to celebrate the huge contribution, guidance and advice that dad’s provide, UK-based brand Daditude is launching to help make finding the perfect gift for them even more accessible. However, dads should be thanked all year round, and the all-new Daditude brand is the gift shop for fathers, allowing sons and daughters the chance to purchase truly unique and meaningful products at any time and for any celebration.

No matter whether it is a birthday, special occasion or they simply just want to thank him for everything he has done, Daditude is the all-new company specifically designed to fit all dads. The brand provides consumers with a full range of products that are ideal for any father, at any time. Currently stocking nearly 300 products, the Daditude collection offers a huge variety of products and the current range includes:

  • Cards for all occasions
  • Fully customisable gifts (such as chocolate, lighters, notepads, keyrings and photo frames)
  • Personalised coffee mugs
  • Cufflinks
  • Bespoke alcoholic packages and tumblers
  • BBQ equipment
  • Camping essentials
  • Gadgets
  • DIY Tools

These are just some of the huge array of topics that the brand currently offers customers. Of course, there is the obligatory pair of socks; however, Daditude has been established to say that fathers do not just need socks. Instead, the company is giving customers a modern twist by providing them with a vast choice of gifts for dads.

Daditude was officially launched this week and has been created by a passionate and dedicated team that truly understands the importance of fatherhood. The all-new company has been established to provide consumers with a unique range of gifts that help to differentiate from the standard, mundane gifts traditionally offered. The brand will be focusing on ensuring that consumers will always be able to enjoy the most stylish, unique and never-before-seen gifts on the marketplace.

Speaking ahead of the launch, [RAJ DHANDA, OWNER] at Daditude added, “We are really excited to finally be launching Daditude. For a long time, the marketplace has been full of novelty items that are often cheap and hold no real significance to those special dads in our lives.

That is why we wanted to provide an alternative for consumers. Daditude has been created to act as the one-stop-shop for consumers that are tired of giving a dull pair of socks every father’s day, birthday or Christmas. Instead, they can now show how grateful they are by giving their dad a truly personalised gift that speaks straight from the heart.”

Conspicuous Crowdfunding workshops set to give businesses a boost

START-UPS, individuals, charities, and entrepreneurs are being offered a unique chance to master the art of crowdfunding.

Ian James, managing director at Conspicuous Marketing, and Dave Kelly, who heads up Graphene Business Solutions, are running ‘Conspicuous Crowdfunding’ workshops to share the best ways to access this alternative financing resource.

Crowdfunding is a way of raising money from multiple smaller investors rather than a large contribution from a single source, such as a traditional bank loan.

Keynote speakers from legal, financial, sales, marketing and video production sectors will come together on the workshops to guide attendees through every stage of the crowdfunding process, including the different types available. Attendees will also take part in Q & A sessions with business owners who have been through the procedure, sometimes more than once.

Ian said: “There is a misconception that crowdfunding is simple, all you have to do is set up a crowdfunding page, create a pitch video, add a £50,000 target and watch the money come in. This is just not the case.

“The strategy is the most important part of a campaign. Mapping out each stage of the process and ensuring you have built a marketing communication plan often starting months before the campaign even begins.

“Our workshops bring together leading experts to share their knowledge and experience, enabling businesses, charities and individuals to launch their own campaigns.

“People have seen how successful BrewDog and Monzo have been. Even during this pandemic, individuals and businesses are still investing when they see the right opportunity as shown with Captain Tom Moore’s campaign that raised over £32 million!

“As banks are being so cautious about who they lend money to, businesses and charities need to review their strategy to focus on driving their business in the new world after lockdown.”

Dave explained that it had been frustrating to meet so many inspirational people with fantastic businesses or ideas that could not realise their potential – simply due to a lack of funds.

The pair are currently in discussion with a company that had tried to raise £250,000 on its own but fell well short, securing just £450 in three and a half weeks. And while the proposition was “phenomenal”, the pitch, the introduction and the video were “so wrong” that only friends and family ended up giving cash.

Dave added: “Crowdfunding enables entrepreneurs to get access to much-needed funding without being limited because they do not fulfil the box-checking criteria most commercial lenders use.

“We are passionate about supporting these business leaders to harness those ideas and turn them into a reality as this can only foster positive implications for the community around them.”

Participants complete a questionnaire before the start of the course, allowing Ian, Dave and the team to offer tailored advice to individuals as the program goes on.

The main course takes place at over three half days (8.30am – 1.30pm) on the Zoom platform (June 16, 18 and 23), at a cost of £295 + VAT.

In addition, the founders of Conspicuous Crowdfunding, together with Tech Manchester, are offering a free 90-minute Q&A at 10.30am on June 30. The session which will give start-ups a taster of the crowdfunding process, with five key areas to build their strategy on.

Places for both courses are limited and can be booked on Eventbrite.

[Phoenix, AZ – May 13, 2020] Fullbay, the leading shop management software for heavy-duty repair shops, is pleased to introduce Fullbay Cares, the company’s new initiative designed to give back to the heavy-duty repair community. The ongoing program will provide assistance via charitable donations, educational resources, employee volunteering, and more. To kick off the program, Fullbay Cares is currently hosting a month-long contribution to help those who have been impacted by COVID-19.

Throughout May, every time a U.S.-based shop signs up with Fullbay, Fullbay Cares will make a donation to Feeding America; for each Canadian-based shop that signs up, they will contribute to Food Banks Canada. Both hunger-relief organizations stock hundreds of food banks across North America, helping to feed hungry families and raise awareness.

“This isn’t just the right thing to do; it’s the only thing to do,” said Jacob Findlay, CEO and co-founder of Fullbay. “Those in the heavy-duty community continue to put themselves on the front lines to ensure trucks keep running and people keep receiving food and supplies. We knew we had to do something. Too often we see something going wrong and say, ‘Why doesn’t somebody help?’ This is our chance to help – to do something.’”

Interstate Billing Service, American Diesel Training Center, and Find a Wrench have also jumped aboard, partnering with Fullbay Cares to support its mission to give back.

“Interstate Billing Service is proud to participate along with Fullbay in this campaign to give back to the charitable organizations serving our communities and feeding families in need,” said Jason Windham, president of Interstate Billing Service. “Our mission is to help our customers and team members prosper, and that is only possible when our communities prosper. We have been amazed to see how our customers and team members are giving back during this time, and we are proud to do our part.”

Fullbay Cares is a long-term initiative to bring together the heavy-duty repair community, connecting partners and providing assistance to the essential workforce keeping commercial fleets operating in good times and bad.

About Fullbay
Fullbay provides heavy-duty repair shop management software to streamline workflows and improve efficiency. Launched in 2015, Fullbay helps shops increase technician productivity, invoice faster, better manage parts, connect with other applications, and more. By reducing administrative and management tasks that have slowed down shops for years, Fullbay customers have better-run and more profitable businesses. For more information, visit

Two British mums, whose lives were transformed when IVF treatment helped them have children, have set up a global circle of help that will enable a dozen more people to have free IVF treatment.

Tracey Bambrough and Sara Marshall-Page will announce the recipients of their latest IVF Babble initiative at the Fertility Show Africa in Johannesburg in March.

Tracey and Sara set up IVF Babble, an online portal where those going through fertility treatment can seek support, advice and information just under three years ago.

In 2018 they had the idea of persuading IVF clinics around the world to give away free treatments as part of the celebrations to mark the 40th anniversary of IVF being invented when Louise Brown was born in 1978. Louise Brown selected the recipients at random.

That initiative was so successful that the women decided to repeat the giveaway and this year people seeking treatment have until January 31 to register their interest to be in with a chance of one of the free treatments.

So far four babies have been born and five more are on the way as a result of the previous giveaway. There will be 12 more giveaways announced in Johannesburg and a link to a Spanish clinic has already been announced.

Tracey Bambrough said: “Cost is still one of the main barriers for many people needing fertility treatment. In the UK NHS treatment is a postcode lottery and in many other parts of the world it simply depends on whether you can afford private treatment, have an insurance policy that will cover costs or are lucky enough to live in the right place.

“Sara and I hear every day from those going through their fertility journey about all the barriers they face. By organising this giveaway we are providing practical help for a small number of people, hope for others and highlighting the problem worldwide.

“It started as a UK initiative but now we have clinics all over the world getting in touch asking how they can join in. We also have people from all over the world coming forward in the hope of receiving one of the treatments.

The free IVF cycles have been donated by Bourn Hall, Lister Fertility Clinic and Belfast Fertility in the UK, Vios Fertility in the USA, Bloom Fertility in India, IVF Turkey, IVF Spain, Nadezhda Fertility Clinic in Bulgaria and Hart Fertility Clinic in South Africa. Some of the clinics have donated more than one cycle.

Tracey has twin girls born by IVF, created the online portal with her friend Sara Marshall-Page from London who also experienced fertility issues and finally became a mum in 2010 after several rounds of specialist treatment.

IVF Babble is the go-to source of information, support and advice for anyone struggling with fertility or undergoing treatment and has gained over 3m readership and an army of celebrity advocates including Fearne Cotton and singer Sophie Ellis Bextor since its launch in 2016.
