Beanie Media joins The Kirkwood Business Movement

We are delighted to introduce Beanie Media as one of the 12 founding members of The Kirkwood Business Movement!

Beanie Media, a young and dynamic web design and digital marketing agency based in Huddersfield were among the very first to sign up to join The Kirkwood Movement when it officially launched back in March.  

The local agency, who work with professional services and retailers to build their online presence in the digital world, will work with The Kirkwood team to create new opportunities and forge strong bonds with other local businesses. They will also receive our commitment to stand side by side with them, supporting their employers, their workforce and their local community in any way we can.  

Melissa Roberts, Managing Director at Beanie Media, is proud to have joined The Kirkwood Business Movement.  

She said: “We’re really looking forward to being part of this emerging community alongside other local businesses.

“We chose to join the Kirkwood Business Movement because we wanted to support amazing the work that The Kirkwood do, having had family members use their care and support. 

“The Kirkwood took care of my Grandma when she was terminally ill with Bowel Cancer. She was cared for on the In-Patient Unit at the end of her life and the staff would organise activities for her to do with our family so we could spend time together. 

“It was a difficult time, but as a family we took comfort knowing she was well looked after. 

“I still have the box of crafts that we made together at The Kirkwood over 10 years ago which I keep as a happy memory even though she was at the end of her life. 

“The Kirkwood really is a great cause and I’d encourage those reading this to think about joining too. As well as supporting a local charity, it will be a great opportunity to meet other business owners.” 

Jess Lees, Business Development Manager with The Kirkwood, said: “We’re delighted that Beanie Media have pledged their support for our new venture. More than a business club or a networking opportunity, our aim is to create a movement for good, bringing like-minded businesses who are passionate about caring for the most vulnerable here in Kirklees together, and we’re delighted that the team at Beanie Media share that passion. 

“No one knows and loves our local area more than those who live and work locally, and we believe that when we work together, we can achieve so much more. Beanie Media believe in the difference our care makes for local people and we can’t wait to work with them.” 

As part of The Kirkwood’s commitment to every business who joins our Business Movement, we’ll provide a bespoke induction for a nominated champion within each business to help them support colleagues affected by any life limiting illness. 

Jess continued: “The Kirkwood Business Movement will offer members lots of the benefits you might expect such as networking events, opportunities to reach new audiences and resources to use as part of your marketing.  

“But we’ll also give businesses all the tools they need to support their employees and help them to understand more about our life changing work so that, if they ever need us, they will know how to reach out for help.”
