Hammersmith Health Books are proud to be sponsoring the Health and Social Care category at the 2017 UK Blog Awards. Last week we threw an event with Action PR to celebrate our partnership with the UK Blog Awards and the fantastic entries to the brand new Sport and Fitness category. We met some very inspirational people who have chosen to share their health journeys through the medium of blogging. It was lovely to see new friendships form as people were able to put faces to those who they had previously only known by their blog names. It was also announced that the stunning Chessie King, who inspires her many Instagram followers with her sunny attitude and her dedication to health and fitness, will be hosting the UK Blog Awards.
In keeping with the theme of the Awards, which will be ‘blog heroes’, Action PR sourced an array of weird and wonderful fancy dress outfits. Throwing themselves into the spirit in true superhero style, the bloggers embraced the theme and posed for photos. With a giftcard up for grabs (generously donated by Active in Style), our very own Director Georgina Bentliff was tasked with judging the snaps and awarding the prize to the best one. The winner went to the delightful Patricia, whose battle with ME and record breaking rowing success was a truly humbling journey to follow, documented on her blog, Girl on the River.
The event was catered by the wonderful Mr Prempy’s, who provided raw vegan cakes, from chocolate ganache to beetroot and passion fruit. Bloggers and judges mingled, cake and prosecco in hand, with some feeling distinctly merry by the end of the evening. We went home armed with Action PR chocolate bars, healthy takes on traditional Mars and Snickers bars, full of raw cacao and other delicious ingredients.
Hopefully there weren’t too many sore heads the next morning! Thank you to Action PR for a wonderful mixer and a great opportunity to meet some fantastic bloggers and influencers in the health and fitness space.
