This Is My Way Launch Event

To celebrate the launch of the ‘This Is My Way’ campaign, we hosted a unique event at our Blacks Manchester Deansgate store.

Taking place in the heart of Manchester, the launch evening was bustling with excitement. There were motivational talks, competitions and a congregation of inspirational bloggers, guests, and faces of the campaign all celebrating their love of the outdoors. Special appearances from Olivia Wood, Abigale Lawton and Sonia Whitehead gave guests the chance to mix with some of our This Is My Way advocates and share experiences. Mountain biker, Bex Tatham from Wonderful Wild Women gave insight into her outdoor stories and drives.

Sophie has recently joined the team after working as a sales assistant in the Blacks Meadowhall store. She is an occasional walker and hoping to experience more of the outdoors after moving closer to the Peak District from her small village in Yorkshire.

She is more accustomed to camping and travelling with her local Senior Section unit, camping in places like Alton Towers and Marwell Zoo, and travelling to North America and Switzerland.

Sophie is a self-proclaimed crazy cat lady, space fanatic and likes going to the pub at the weekend like any normal person should.
