Duo show their love for Manchester

Following the riots in Manchester the 'I Love MCR' campaign aims to show the world that the people of Manchester are proud of their city and united against anti-social behaviour.

With an 85 mancunian strong workforce, the whole Duo team were keen to show their support for the campaign and love for the city of Manchester. To help promote the campaign within the city Duo manufactured 10,000 I love MCR branded polythene bags which were kindly donated to the campaign for use in the Manchester stores and stalls throughout the week.

Duo serves many of the UK leading high street retailers who were heavily affected by the rioting that occurred earlier this month and they were keen to assist in any way they could to help recover confidence in the community, get people back shopping the in city and help the retailers recover.

Brand Manager Zoe Brimelow said, "As a local Manchester business we were keen to help support the campaign and promote positivity within the city. It was a great effort from the Duo team who truly pulled together to ensure the bags were ready for the launch day and we are exceptionally proud of the result. In true Manchester style the weather didn't disappoint and the rain was present, thank goodness the bags were polythene and waterproof!"

On behalf of the Duo team Zoe expressed "There is a great feeling of community within the city today and we are happy to have been able to contribute to the success of the day."
