26.01.16 - Thousands Flock to Bank Mick's Prize Fund
The annual exhibition Lamma16 took place in Peterborough last week and as ever proved a major attraction for Landowners, Farmers and industry professionals within the agricultural sector.
The event which predominantly showcases the latest technology in machinery, vehicle or agrochemical and seed displays had an extra dimension this year as Mick George Ltd were on site to demonstrate additional revenue streams outside of the norm for Landowners.
The business lead with the ‘Cash Under Your Feet’ slogan which specifically considers the opportunity to earn royalties by extracting surplus aggregates from beneath the surface. In association with the notion of reaping financial rewards, the company also had a roulette wheel on its stand to provide visitors the opportunity to take home £1000 as part of the ‘Bank of Mick’ campaign.
Local farmer, Mark Gilbert of J.Gilbert & Son, Butchers Hill Farm was the fortunate contestant to take home the prize fund. ‘’As well as viewing shiny new machinery in and around the showground, I always make a point of viewing the inside stands and I’m particularly glad now that I did. Having got over the disappointment of missing out on the recent £33 million lottery rollover, this was a pleasing replacement. Where possible we like to work with local suppliers, and I am impressed with the level of professionalism Mick George Ltd brings to the Waste Disposal and Aggregate supply industry. We look forward to using Mick George Ltd services in the future’’ Said Mark Gilbert.
Jon Stump, Finance Director at Mick George Ltd commented: ‘’The audience that attends Lamma comes from the breadth of the UK, all of which won’t be as familiar with Mick George Ltd and our services as the immediate local community. The business recognises that with the sheer abundance of exhibitors and product displays to see at the event that we had to make a little extra effort to stand out from the crowd.’’
Stump continued: ‘’Feedback from event organisers was that our stand was far and away one of the busiest which gave us the opportunity to promote our brand in an important industry for us. Visitors to the stand certainly appeared to enjoy themselves, and we’re pleased that one local businessman has managed to take home a nice cash bonus.’’
