Wingfinger partner Richard, along with his daughter Becky and friends completed the 24.5 mile Yorkshire Three Peaks Walk on 17 March 2012.

Becky is fundraising for her trip to Bangladesh in April, as part of a Voluntary Services Overseas (VSO) Global Exchange group. Global Exchange is a Global Volunteering Experience which supports young people from all backgrounds to make a real difference to some of the world’s poorest people. VSO is an International Development Charity that works through and with Volunteers.

Whilst in Bangladesh Becky will live in a community in a host person’s home, learn first-hand about the culture and share skills, creativity and learning. In Bangladesh she will contribute to VSO Bangladesh’s Model Village concept – where poor and excluded people benefit from economic growth and social development. In the model village, community groups (Youth Clubs and Citizen Committees) are mobilised to work for the village development on issues affecting their communities. The aim of VSO Bangladesh is then to share best practice outcomes from these villages with many more in the same geographical area to maximise impact.

You can donate on her Just giving page (the money will go directly to VSO):

A guerilla gardening update – the birthday flower grenades have been deployed.

Pictured above are the Seedboms being prepared in a little water (although apparently they don’t have to be wet beforehand) and also a shot of the target area.

Well we’ve finally had time to sit down and join the masses with our very own blog, Wingfingerponderings. We hope this will be a happy place, where we can trumpet about new projects, share our passions and concerns (including some that are clients care about, too) and ponder on The World and Everything In It.

This will be a spot for our Wingfinger spirit to take off – hopefully with more success than this pigeon, who tried something similar outside our office a few months back (we think he walked it off and lived to fly another day, though).

To find out more about our graphic design studio in Leeds, the services we offer and the sort of jobs we are doing, have a browse through the Wingfinger website. Learn more about the Wingfinger team and our company ethos, our history and our clients – and have a look through our portfolio of work.
