And we’re back with our weekly Friday blog highlighting what’s up and coming in the world of Digital PR next week.
From the ONS UK Sick Day Release to World Book Day and even ‘Old Stuff Day’, here are some upcoming opportunities…
BANK OF ENGLAND MONEY AND CREDIT RELEASE – 1ST MARCH
We’re kicking off the month of March with a report from the Bank of England which offers monthly insight into UK business and consumer lending.
This is a great one to keep on your radar if you’re working in consumer finance and property.
You can find the full Bank of England release from 9:30 AM, here.
UK NATIONAL OLD STUFF DAY MARCH – 2ND MARCH
Out with the old and in with the new: The UK’s National Old Stuff Day urges everyone to try something new – whether that be a new skill, new food, or replacing the old flickering lightbulb in the pantry – it’s something everyone can find value in.
With the day fast approaching on March 2nd, this national awareness day could give rise to some lovely feel-good campaigns as we head out of winter.

ONS SICKNESS ABSCENES UK LABOUR RELEASE – 3rd MARCH
If your area of focus is employment, lifestyle, and/or health, this release offering insight into the UK’s 2019-2020 workplace sickies might offer inspiration, especially as we saw the UK under the grips of a national pandemic this year. The ONS release outlines the number of sick days in the UK 2019-2020, as well as the total number of days lost and what the reasons were for absence.
