It’s Friday, which can only mean one thing… we are back bringing you an update into the events and awareness days coming up over the next week!

So if you’re launching a PR campaign or just planning on running newsjacking, make sure the below events are on your radar:

ONS UK LABOUR MARKET RELEASE, 23rd FEBRUARY

BANANA BREAD DAY, 23rd FEBRUARY

People may feel banana-breaded out from all the loaves made in the first lockdown, but it’s making a comeback as this Tuesday is the official Banana Bread Day!

From reactive recipes, comments and even products, this day could really help build those links back to site!
