To say the staff at Groupon are “full of beans” is a statement that’s certainly true, and in some cases literal. They’re also full of Mexican chill, lentil & spinach, and even Thai chicken; all thanks to the soups at the Swan Lane cafe, keeping our staff pepped and ready throughout the day.
Groupon Grassroots are joining forces with Together for Short Lives to help promote Children’s Hospice Week. This is the UK’s only awareness and fundraising week for children with life-limiting conditions and the services, like children’s hospices, that support them. It takes place this year between 26 April and 3 May.
Bang Restaurant is described by the Irish Times as “Restaurant food at its best”. Also recommended by the Michelin Guide 2013, the entire teams at Bang work diligently to live up to their award winning reputation and are proud to be recommended by so many restaurant critics. The philosophy at Bang is simple: great quality food at affordable prices, in relaxed and informal surroundings.
Here at Groupon we’ve been really excited about an exclusive deal we’ve been working on, the Beach Body Beautiful Boot camp with rugby star Danny Cipriani to raise money for Heart Research UK. It went live a couple of weeks ago and 15 lucky winners have been chosen to take part.
The event was due to take place this Saturday but unfortunately Danny was involved in a road traffic accident last night and was in hospital as a precautionary measure. Whilst his injuries are not serious, he is unable to lead the boot camp so soon after his accident so we are rescheduling the event.
We’re hoping to be able to hold the event in the next couple of months when Danny is back on his feet. In the meantime everyone here at Groupon HQ would like to wish Danny all the best, and hope he makes a full recovery!
Welcome to “The Week that Was…”, our weekly update of Groupon’s coverage in the media.
Following our recent super-deal with Danny Cipriani, we thought we’d focus on some coverage regarding something core to us – local and small businesses. Last week we saw some great articles regarding our partner merchants, and how working with Groupon has been beneficial to their businesses.
