  • We’re delighted to be shortlisted for the 2018 Best Digital Campaign at The Drum Social Purpose Awards for the Tommy’s pre-pregnancy web app. Designed and built with our cracking in-house team (including writing the underlying algorithm) the web app helps women assess their chances of having a healthy pregnancy.

  • Christmas biscuits

    Aldi has pledged to give away all surplus fresh food from its 775 stores in the UK to local charities when its stores close on Christmas Eve.

    The discounter is calling on charities and food banks to register to its festive food donation scheme to receive the free food such as fruit, vegetables, fresh meat, fish and bread.

  • You’d be hard pushed to find a group of people that embrace acronyms as readily as charities: from ABG to DBS and SORP, the sector is bursting with them. Not to be outdone, the tech sector is spawning an ever-growing list of letters to keep pace with our ongoing technical evolution (AI and Wi-Fi ring any bells?).

    So just imagine what happened when the charity and tech sectors got together in one room for the annual Charity Tech Conference… that’s right, acronym madness!

    Last week we attended the conference, where we found ourselves knee deep in the land of CX, EX and UX. Unsure what these letters refer to? Never fear, we’ve put together this handy guide for you explaining what they stand for and what they could mean for you and your charity:

  • The UK’s insect pollinators are in a critical state, with around two thirds of all invertebrate species in severe decline. These insects are vitally important, as they pollinate one in three mouthfuls that we eat and eight out of ten wildflowers.

    Part of the issue is that development has left much of our wildlife confined to tiny fragments of habitat, unable to move across the countryside. Buglife’sB-Lines project is an attempt to reverse this trend by creating a series of ‘insect pathways’ running through our countryside and towns.

  • Billions of perfectly edible meals are chucked in our bins every year. According to the charity Fareshare, which redistributes supermarket food waste to people in need, 1.9 million tonnes of food is wasted by the food industry every year in the UK. And several million more tonnes are thrown from cupboards and fridges in households around the country, according to resource consultancy WRAP.  

  • If you’re in Manchester, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Newark-on-Trent or Tonbridge, you may already be aware of your local Google Garage.

    These Garages offer free workshops, advice and training on all things digital for people of all different skill levels and experience. Providing a unique opportunity to freshen up your digital skills or learn something new on your local high-street, they’re definitely worth checking out!

    Yesterday, I attended an Analytics workshop run by Rick Birtles, a senior data analyst at PRWD who shared his insights and real-world experience in a really engaging and practical two hour session.

  • Fat Beehive, the UK’s leading digital agency for the Third Sector, with offices in London and Manchester, has today achieved certification to the internationally recognised ISO 27001 standard, establishing it as one of the leaders in its field.

  • Fat Beehive is pleased to announce the opening of our new Manchester office.

  • Our new Head of Support, Zoe Kitley

She has focussed on agency web development since 2011, has been writing code in multiple programming languages since she was 16 and has a degree in computer science.
