Newly launched online classified advertising company ads’ere is to support the Royal British Legion 2011 Poppy Appeal by encouraging people to place ads during November – and for every new and genuine free classified ad placed during the month, ads’ere will donate 50p to the Royal British Legion.
Founder Mick Kirby and CEO Lisa Salter hold the Royal British Legion close to their hearts, both having seen generations of family members and close friends serving in the Armed Forces. So they decided to link their company to the Charity in the month when we remember the fallen, and donate to the Poppy Appeal.
Both of Mick’s parents served in the RAF during WW2 and Lisa’s granddad was in the Royal Navy; Mick’s father was a member of the Royal British Legion until his death in 2000 and his Mum has been a member for 64 years. Mick’s nephew is carrying on the family tradition, currently serving in the Armed Forces himself. Lisa says, “This is a cause close to our hearts, having so many service personnel, both current and ex, among our family and friends of whom we are very proud.” November gives an ideal opportunity for the company to give something back to the Charity that has supported their loved ones.
ads’ere is a new classified ads site with a difference. As well as providing the traditional opportunities for second-hand sellers, businesses and trades people to run free classified adverts, they offer members the ability to create their own communities where they can trade with familiar people or those who have the same interests, say in their child’s school, a workplace, or a club or group. While going back to basics with local, regional, national and international classified advertisements, this adds a friendly and reassuring aspect to the site.
The team has numerous years of business experience and is committed to offering a personalised and trustworthy service, with free unlimited listings and a blog containing all kinds of hints and tips – ads’ere offers members a low-risk opportunity to buy, sell, swap, donate or find what they are looking for. They also offer free listings for service providers such as trades people or business support specialists.
November offers a great opportunity for ads’ere to put something back into the community that has supported their loved ones, and they hope that members of the wider community will help by placing an ad. For each genuine ad placed on the site in November, ads’ere will make a set donation to the Royal British Legion 2011 Poppy Appeal.
