Lockdown Birthdays
with Beano

BEANO BEANO Save the Children

As the UK entered lockdown in March 2020, as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, children were set to miss out on celebrating their birthday in the usual ways. Within a few weeks, a partnership had been agreed and birthday packs including a personalised card from a Beano character were being sent out in exchange for a small donation to Save the Children's work supporting kids facing the fallout of the pandemic in the UK and around the world.

Side Projects


Children's clothing company & do good movement

Sweatshirts for kids that do a little good in the world. Developing a national movement of kids who support a series of important causes through uniquely designed sweatshirts - this project started as an experiment to launch a niche venture with a zero budget.

Secret Santa App

Draw your secret santa gift exchange... in secret

The problem with Secret Santa gift exchanges is it takes one person to do the draw, who then doesn't get to join in with the surprise! This web app solves the problem by using an algorithm that generates matches and emails each participant individually. This project is a learning excercise in full stack web development, focusing on MVC (Laravel), Git (Bitbucket), CSS Frameworks (Bootstrap) and PaaS (Heroku).
