Stripe had the pleasure of looking after (and dressing!) some adorable West Highland White Terriers last week, as they assisted Minister for Transport, Keith Brown in the launch of the Scottish Government’s Ready For Winter? campaign.
The Scottish Government’s ‘Ready for Winter?’ campaign, in partnership with the British Red Cross, provides information and advice on how to prepare and cope with severe weather including snow, ice, flooding and high winds.
The campaign includes a range of online resources and will feature integrated marketing activity across TV, local press, radio (local and community), news websites and social media. This is the fourth year the campaign has run and it will run from 21 October to 30 November.

Last week some of the Stripes ventured down to London Town to help unveil a giant sculpture to celebrate ScottishPower raising £5 million for Cancer Research UK.
The sculpture – weighing almost 40 stone– was unveiled at 7am in central London to encourage people to recognise the fundraising efforts by ScottishPower to help Cancer Research UK develop newer, kinder treatments.
As word spread, plenty of people popped by to have their picture taken with the sculpture, and of course the lovely Dawn O’Porter, who helped to celebrate the £5 million milestone.
There might have also been an incident with a bird…
It was a double win at the CIPR Scotland PRide Awards for the team here at Stripe – as well as picking up Outstanding Public Relations Consultancy, our Account Manager Shaun Bell scooped Young Communicator of the Year.
Shaun was praised for being ‘head and shoulders’ above the other candidates with his passion for what he does shining through. After joining Stripe in 2011 through the Stars and Stripes graduate programme, Shaun has worked his way up to Account Manager and delivered campaigns for clients such as John Lewis, the Scottish Government and Young Scot.
Our MD, Juliet Simpson, said: “I’m extremely proud of the whole team who all play their part in helping us to achieve amazing results for our clients, and I’m especially pleased for Shaun who fully deserves this award for the dedication and passion he brings to his job every day.”
We also won Silver awards for the Public Sector and Consumer Relations categories for The Scottish Government Country Roads campaign and VELUX Lovers of Light campaign respectively.
