We were excited to be invited to join the Matchstick Monkey team at the Mother & Baby Awards 2020 (even though it is 2019!).
Getting ready was an event in itself, as the Neat PR team decided together on Hilary’s attire for the evening! Hair up or down, which dress was best suited to the occasion, black or gold shoes, and which handbag – a true team effort!
Held at the prestigious Westminster Park Plaza hotel, the room looked spectacular. We were delighted to have three brands we represent shortlisted, Matchstick Monkey, Silver Cross and Muddy Puddles.
Neat PR has worked with Matchstick Monkey from its inception to the growing brand that it is today. Every day we continue to thrive on the inclusion of the Matchstick Monkey product collection in influencer reviews and in the media.
Being with the lovely, fun team (who are an extension to our Neat PR family) at the awards was brilliant. We waited in anticipation as the awards were announced, and as each one was called out it got closer and closer to the best teething product being announced.
When the teething category came up on the screen, imagine our feelings when the Matchstick Monkey Lion won bronze, and then the elation as the original Matchstick Monkey won GOLD.
What a fab evening with compere, Sally Phillips, keeping us amused and the gorgeous and very talented Fleur East (X-Factor) keeping us entertained with her outstanding voice and stage presence – it really was one big party.
Thank you Matchstick Monkey for a FAB evening and we’re very proud to be a part of such an inspirational brand!
