We had the pleasure of attending and exhibiting at the Leicester Mercury Motor Show recently, at Oadby Racecourse. Thousands flocked to the motor show, with more than 40 brands of classic cars on display for enthusiasts to pore over as well as car manufacturers from across the glove showcasing their latest models.
As well of hundreds of beautiful cars to peruse there was also a number of retail stalls, including our own, and some fun activities for the younger ones, such as a fun fair and a football competition. Not to mention crazy golf, go karts and the free inflatable rides – we found it a struggle to stay on the exhibition stand!
Over 10,000 people came through during the day and it was a great opportunity to introduce the Bear Grooming range of cosmetics and nutraceuticals to a large number of new people. Both of the founders were out and about with the rest of the Bear Grooming team, introducing the Bear Grooming brand, ethos and testers of our beautifully scented beard oils, moustache waxes and beard washes.
With over 10,000 people passing through we did meet quite a few people and made a number of sales as well. All of the proceeds from our day out at the Leicester Mercury Motor show have been donated to Coping with Cancer, who are a local charity operating in Leicestershire and Rutland. We are very proud to support such a great and important charity.
Moving forward we will be taking this a step further and donating a percentage of every sale of a product in our cosmetic range, to Coping with Cancer in Leicestershire and Rutland. We hope that through these means we can help to support the Coping with Cancer charity moving forward, a charity very close to the hearts of a number of the team here at Bear Grooming.
