The drop in day for local businesses ran between 3pm and 7pm, giving Unified World’s customers and contacts the chance to go on a giant Scalextric and F1 car Simulator, to win a Brand new iPad for beating the Stig’s fastest time.
The day was fun packed with F1 activities and allowed the Mayor of Blackburn and Darwen council to bring two of his charities to the event, in aid to raise money for the children.
The Mayor of Blackburn Councillor Zamir Khan represented his two charities; ‘Miles of Smiles’ and ‘East Lancashire Hospice’. Unified World along with other businesses helped raise £170 for the charities, to help children feel special. We invited a little boy Jack Hegerty from the ‘Miles of Smiles’ charity, as our V.I.P guest, along with his family. His family enjoyed going on the F1 models and received some very special gifts for him and his brother making one happy little boy.
The day was very successful and we received many kind emails which can be viewed on the right and below. Many thanks to the chamber of commerce who attended. They were most helpful in promoting our event and helped towards a great turnout, making it a great day. As Unified World is a Diamond Ambassador, we hope to see the Chamber at future events.
Clients were also given a Unified World goody bag to take home and a chance to come in for a one to one with a member of our team, overall a great event for everyone and many more to come for our business.

Well its been just over a year since Nokia got into bed with Microsoft and produced the first Nokia/Windows phones. 12 months later, and lessons learned, Nokia have released 2 new Lumia’s based in Windows 8, the Lumia 820 and 920.
Based on the same Windows 8 operating system that runs on your desktop, the Nokia Lumia 820 is the second of Nokia’s two new Windows phones. It’s the neglected sibling of the flagship Lumia 920, and is barely mentioned in Nokia’s presentations. But why?
