‘Business Brain of Britain!’.
Michelle Payne from The Upstairs Gallery, Beccles is celebrating this week after the news that she has won a competition run by Heart Radio and Aviva Insurance ‘Business Brain of Britain’!
An online entry sent to the gallery, had Michelle answer 10 timed out questions about business and general knowledge, with the entries being listed on a leader board from businesses around Britain.
A cash award of £1500 for the top contestant to spend on their business was given, and the gallery received a phone call by Chris Marsden to say that the Gallery had won!
‘I am so pleased for the gallery’ says Michelle. ‘As we are a not for profit organisation supporting artists from all over East Anglia, the award means that we can further our promotion on a daily basis to overseas clients via the worldwide web’.
With further plans in 2010 to find businesses to hold a sponsorship for artists with their logos on all promotional material involved, the gallery has expanded for both tourism and business in the area, winning the 2008 Sunrise Tourism Award, and the Eastern Daily Press Extra Mile award, and currently nominated for 4 further awards in 2009, it’s a very busy time for the gallery!
If you are a business that would like to sponsor an artist in 2010, please contact the gallery on 01502 717191 or email [email protected], for further information.
