Mediaworks took a step back in time to take part in the Digital Union Summer Net Together School Sports Day. The result? A first-place finish against a strong field of digital agencies from across the North East.
Team Mediaworks gathered at the picturesque Wylam Brewery, in Exhibition Park, Newcastle, and prepared for the event by tucking into some delicious treats served up by Longhorns Barbecue Smokehouse and Bao Nomi.
Once everyone was ‘refreshed’, it was outside into the sun-kissed grounds of Exhibition Park for the games to be declared open by Games Master Hal Branson from the comedy trio, Hot Gulp.
With a third-place finish in the egg and spoon race thanks to great teamwork by our Sales and Marketing Executive, Roxanne, and our new Client Relationship Manager, Hayley, we only went from strength to strength.
Copywriter, Lee, and Business Development Manager, Peter, worked in tandem to win the 3-legged race heat, before Business Development Executive, Dean and Senior Designer, Paul, jumped to victory in the sack race. Dean then returned to the field alongside Head of Search, Kev, and powered their way to first place in the wheelbarrow race.
With our place in the final confirmed, we remained focussed and won the egg and spoon race final before following it up with a second-place finish in the sack race final. Lee and Peter pulled another win out of the bag for the 3-legged final then Lee and Paul rounded us off with a second in the wheelbarrow race final.
After a nervous wait and some more networking, the results were in. We had soared to victory and picked up the coveted first-place trophy in a fantastic end to a fun-filled evening.
