How we are celebrating our 50th Birthday…
McCarthy’s is 50 years old this year and we want to CELEBRATE!
It’s hard to believe that in 1968 Mick McCarthy (pictured below) started out as a one man band from a terraced house in Leeds. Here we are 50
years later, still a family firm, having taken homeowners everywhere from down the same street to across the world to start new lives, and with a business which now incorporates three self storage centres, a shredding company, document management and a business centre. No wonder we’ve been so busy!
So, we plan to mark our 50th year in lots of different ways to show how proud we are of where we’ve come, and the wonderful team who have worked with us over the years. (Some of them we just can’t seem to get rid of…)
Over the course of the year we’ll update this page with more details about our plans – but some of the things we’re looking forward to, include:
- A summer birthday bash – everyone needs a birthday party, even a removals and storage company.
- 50 good deeds – what better way to celebrate than to give something back. We aim to do 50 good deeds over the course of 2018 – whether that’s helping a charity with a man and a van, donating a self storage unit to a good cause, helping someone to move house who didn’t think it would be possible, or treating our customers to a little something to say thank you. We’ll be
looking for nominations and ideas, and although we won’t be able to do them all, if you have someone or something you’d like to put forward, we’d love to hear from you. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet us @McCarthys_Leeds.
- Getting out and about in the community – we plan on coming along to local events with our 1937 Bedford van – the oldest working removals van in Britain. So, keep an eye open for us – and if you are involved in an event you’d like us to attend, why not get in touch email@example.com
- Competitions – everyone loves a winner, and we plan on running some BIG competitions in this big birthday year, many of which will be on our social media pages. So, follow us here and here to make sure you hear about it to be in with a chance to win.
- Special offers – a little birthday gift for all of our customers, we’re going to be running some special offers in our online and on site box shops. We’ll be announcing
more in due course…
We plan on making 2018 our best year yet – and we hope to involve as many people as possible! We look forward to celebrating with you… cheers!
