Amongst other things, artists have had exposure to new audiences along with our partners, the public have won prizes and enjoyed some fun times, and a handful of brands in the NFP sector have been engaged and given exposure for their good work.
“All I can say, is that next week, we’re going to be crunching a few numbers and have some more surprises in store.
“Everybody who has been a part of the journey will be rewarded, so I’d jump aboard and get a Shaker Pass before we wrap up”.
