There are a lot of outdoor spectator events this month including The Boat Race, The Grand National and The London Marathon. Unfortunately the weather forecast says it might still be brass monkey weather, despite being officially the middle of spring!  Look at the website to see how you can still look stylish and be warm. Don’t forget to look out for our Christopher from the sales team who is running in the Marathon.

He is raising money for Macmillan Nurses who looked after his nan and have recently been helping his mum. Look out for him on April 21 wearing the Budd logo on his nightshirt. He’s already raised £500 toward his £2500 goal.
