GUS GOES NORTH! – MR BENN’S MANCHESTER ADVENTURE

Mr Benn and his friends had a great time visiting Waterloo station a couple of weeks ago. Along with The Shopkeeper, Gus the gorilla and some special helpers, he was fortunate to meet Londoners, hand out a whole host of free special gifts and offer the opportunity to win a once-in-a-lifetime gorilla safari holiday in Uganda! It was a fantastic experience and inspired Mr Benn to begin another adventure immediately but before he could, Gus got loose and escaped! Fortunately for everyone, that mischievous gorilla made his merry way to Manchester and delighted the locals with his monkeying around. Find out more in our magical new blog!

Anarchy at the Arndale!

Alongside the Westfield in Stratford, Manchester Arndale is the busiest shopping centre in the entire country, with over 42 million visitors a year. So, we saw this as a great opportunity to meet and treat some of the public! Once again, people were able to go through our very special jungle experience, guided by Mr Benn in his safari costume and introduced to a thoroughly enthusiastic Gus the gorilla. Meeting the cult cartoon character in person clearly brought back a lot of memories for some of the people we spoke to. One gentleman told us “It was my favourite cartoon growing up, absolute favourite!” while another laughed as he said “Loved it. Yeah, absolutely loved it. I watched it every day.”

Prizes galore!

Launching The Insurance Emporium has been a rollercoaster ride and so much fun. We’ve met so many new people along the way and we wanted to reward those friendly faces with some special gifts. Just as we did at Waterloo, we provided our own take on the wheel of fortune. Each spin won a prize and many delighted contestants left with umbrellas, solar-powered phone chargers, tote bags, mobile phone power banks and many more excellent prizes. Not only that but we offered them the opportunity to win a chance to visit the endangered mountain gorillas of the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in Uganda, a luxury trip for two that would be truly unforgettable. Our competition doesn’t finish until 14th October 2017, so you’ve not missed your chance either – just enter here!
